Former Curves owner Michelle Brown has brought back circuit training to Trail with her new venture Better Health Fitness.
The all-female facility offers a complete aerobic and strength training workout in just 30 minutes.
Women move from easy-to-learn hydraulic resistance machines every 30 seconds, keeping a constant flow that is motivating and independent yet a shared experience.
“What you do here in 30 minutes would probably take an hour in a gym because you have to sometimes wait your turn or you have to adjust the right weight for you. Whereas with resistance, you just do it at your own speed and at what`s comfortable for you,” said Brown.
“You dont have somebody hovering over you, waiting or telling you to hurry up. Everybody moves at the same pace together in the same motion. ”
Better Health Fitness machines are designed to work both the front and back of the body at the same time. Equipment includes familiar pieces from the leg press, stepper to bicep curler.
After Curves shut down, Brown decided to get back to what she loves. Spending eight years at the former facility, managing for four and owning the business for one year, Brown wanted to give her old clientele what they were after in a workout establishment.
“I think the women need it because some women won`t go to a gym,” she said. “I`ve known these women for years, they love it and this is what they need and I`ve seen the results.”
Better Health Fitness, located at 1205 Bay Avenue, is “open to all ages, shapes and sizes.”
The drop-in centre is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon.
