Curves Announces New Goal: Make One Million Women Stronger

Curves locations throughout the world are joining forces for a new initiative called Stronger Together, an international movement to make one million women stronger and healthier. The program will rely heavily on women sharing their success stories and providing confidence and inspiration to others.

The heart of the Stronger Together movement lives at an online public Web site, where women can find useful information about the movement, register to join the cause, sign their personal strength pledge and share their stories about how they were able to start a healthier lifestyle. They'll also find a myriad of useful tools, including a free Small Steps weekly email that gives subscribers simple fitness and nutrition tips that can make a big difference in their health.

According to Curves Founder Diane Heavin, a strong component of Curves' new movement is that if one woman is able to share her strength in wanting to improve her health, she can help another woman gain confidence, become fit, discover focus and avoid disease. "By making your own health a priority, you become a strong link in the chain and have the power to affect those around you," she said.

Studies have shown that regular exercise has long-lasting benefits to health. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. It helps reduce risks of a myriad of diseases, including cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome and some cancers. Besides preventing the risk of disease, regular exercise also improves your mental health and mood, your ability to do daily activities, and increase your chances of living longer, the organization says.

"At Curves we understand clearly the proven link between lack of exercise, poor nutrition, excess weight and chronic disease. We decided to take on this new, ground-breaking challenge because there are so many women out there suffering from preventable diseases. If we can get just a million women focused on getting healthier and stronger, those diseases can be avoided," Heavin said. "It's important that women make their health a priority, and we are here to help every step of the way. We challenge women to take charge of their lives: live better, longer, healthier and with more confidence."

"Our existing members have demonstrated that they are committed to improving their health by joining our programs; we want to use that confidence as an example for other women to also make that commitment," Heavin added. "It just takes that first step to get the cycle going, and that could be joining a regular exercise program like Curves, being informed of health topics, or listening to success stories to inspire you to stay focused. We are excited to help make women stronger in our own communities, as well as throughout the world."
