I've been meaning to post here for awhile and now I'm procrastinatng (in my OFFICE) so now's as good a time as any. I joined Curves at the end of October and I've been going three to four (sometimes five, but usually not) times a week since then and it's really been good for me. Curves is a women's only gym, where you do a half-hour circuit workout with hydraulic machines, meaning that you can work as hard or as light as you want. You spend 30 seconds on each machine, with 30 seconds of aerobics in between.

What I really like about Curves is that it's very goal-oriented (which is good for me, because that's how I work), but it's also really health-oriented. The emphasis is more on losing fat than on losing weight, and once a month they take various measurements (your waist, hips, bust, arms, thighs, etc.) and your BMI. I haven't lost much weight, but I have lost two whole points on my BMI since I started (though that was before I went home for two weeks for the holidays -- eep). It's also fairly inexpensive as gym's go, though I have a student-rate that works a little differently. And it's very low pressure and friendly (mine is, anyway).

Anyway, just thought I'd let you guys know this is out there. It's the only thing I've found in years (besides riding my bike in Germany) that I've managed to stick with for more than about two weeks.
