Curves Smart Machines

I just heard of these tonight. They are the same machines that Curves has always had, but with a smart computer attaches to inform you about your workout intensity, target heartrate, etc. They sound very cool! I hope my Curves gets them soon! Liz, Alex, do your Curves have these? What do you think of them?

I couldn't get the file to embed.... look on You Tube under "Curves Smart"

All Curves locations are in the process of upgrading to the new machines. My location will relocate in March and the new machines will be there. I am so glad as the old machines are quite dinosaurish. I have used machines like they are getting and they are AWESOME!! My only concern is that when working the circuit with some of the old ladies, it may slow us down. That will piss me off.

I will give a report once I start using them!

Melissa, Mine is getting the smart machines in March too. I was worried about the same thing Liz, I think it'll slow down the entire circuit. I think it is good to keep track and let you know if you are doing things right BUT I think you'll be on the machines longer than 30 sec. I don't know what to think of it..

I'm really curious to see them in real life. They sound so cool, and they make me think that I would push myself even harder if I could see my calorie breakdown at the end, etc. I am going to ask tomorrow when we're getting them. Hopefully soon!!

Well, people like us will be on and off in 30 seconds. Its the old ladies that will not "understand" it.

My pet peeve is when there are 8 open spaces and someone starts RIGHT BESIDE ME. Ugh. Pisses me off.

AHHHH! I hate that. Seriously, of all of the open "recovery" stations, they have to pick the one right next to me. I always look for the place farthest from anyone when I start. I already feel like the Curves "over-achiever" because I am the youngest member, I think. I am curious about how the old ladies at my Curves are going to adapt... humm

me too..one a couple of recovery stations I do jumping jacks and jump rope and the instructor one time tried to keep up with me and she was turning red in the face

I'll be gone before they implement the smart machines. I'll be interested to know what you and Liz think about them though. Maybe I'll be able to join up with curves in Japan too.

The little old ladies don't like me too much. I try to go when they aren't there! I am impressed with the jump ropes, Alex!
