  • Here is what some of our Elgin Curves members wanted to share in celebration of Curves 25th Birthday:
  • Jill Martin (Elgin):  In 2003 when I began Curves, I was tired plus health issues.  I am very grateful to be a part of Curves over the past 13 years, because I am STRONGER physically and emotionally.  The owner, Gudrun, and her staff are dedicated, efficient and caring.  I look forward to coming and being greeted with a smile.  I’m 75 now and hope I’ll be even STRONGER over the next 10-15 years.  Congratulations to Curves 25 years.  God Bless!!
  • Marie Merollo (Bartlett):  After losing my husband of 36 years I fell into a deep state of depression that lasted over a year.  In 2000 I decided to try Curves out and see if I could improve my state of mind.  Also, I had put on several extra pounds trying to content myself with food!  In an effort to get healthier both mentally and physically, I began an accelerated regime of workouts six days a week.  I not only improved my state of mind, but also lost 25 unwanted pounds.  At the suggestion of my coaches I slowed down my routine to the recommended 3-4 days regime weekly and have been able to keep most of my weight off for almost 18 years now.  I have competed over 3,250 workouts and plan on maintaining my membership with Curves of Elgin as long as I possibly can! 
  • Jeanne Schambach (Elgin):  I joined Curves for my back and in three months I noticed a difference.  I fell in love with the coaches, the caring and the encouragement from workout partners, who are now friends.  Starting my day with my Curves workout and the wonderful videos helps me have a good day.
  • Judith Heckenberg (Algonquin):  I joined Curves when I turned 40 because I wanted to be healthy and strong.  When I turned 50 menopause hit and I couldn't always get there 3 times a week and gained 30 pounds!  I committed myself to 3 workouts a week and joined Curves Complete (meal plan).  In the last year I've lost 15 pounds and am healthier due to my strength training and eating better meals.  I can't imagine life without Curves!
  • Velma Sept (Elgin):  I came to Curves March of 2004 at the suggestion from my doctor.  I keep coming back, because it keeps me healthy.
  • Anne Marblestone (Elgin):  The record indicates that I have been a member of Curves in Elgin for 15 years.  That is about 1,800 visits.  During those visits I have received excellent nutrition ideas and recipes, encouragement as I was rehabbing after hip replacement, the opportunity to weigh and measure regularly, enjoyment of the weekly Zumba classes, and many new friends.  The friendship of others has reinforced my determination to keep up a regular exercise routine.  I have a bright, cheerful Curves place and friendly staff to cheer me on!
