WOODWAY, Texas, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Curves International, Inc., (http://www.curves.com/) the largest chain of fitness centers for women in the world, today announced it has teamed up with America's health and wellness expert Jillian Michaels to launch Curves Workouts with Jillian Michaels – cutting-edge total body workouts that feature the Curves Circuit strength training machines in conjunction with functional bodyweight-based exercises that ramp up metabolism and transform physique. The workouts boost intensity, build strength, burn fat and prevent plateaus.
Just in time for those looking to kick start their weight loss in the new year, Curves Workouts with Jillian Michaels will roll out in January 2014 at participating Curves clubs across the U.S. and Canada. The program will be refreshed frequently with 12 new functional moves introduced each month throughout 2014. This new partnership also marks the next evolution of Curves and further cements the company as a leader in the fitness and weight loss category.
"I am so thrilled to be partnered with Curves to provide women with the tools necessary to take control of their health," said Jillian Michaels, America's health and wellness expert. "Curves is everywhere – so now my program is accessible, effective and affordable. The workouts I've developed with Curves incorporate the most innovative, state-of-the-art fitness techniques to build lean muscle, amp up metabolism and kick start weight loss. Combined with the power of the Curves Circuit with a trained Coach, women will get the results they want."
The new Curves Workouts with Jillian Michaels are designed for women at every fitness level and include simple modifications for each movement. Metabolic conditioning exercises will be done in between each strength machine within the Curves Circuit, all within a 30-minute class. Curves Coaches have been trained to deliver the moves and are in every Circuit to ensure safety and effectiveness. Class times for the Curves Workouts with Jillian Michaels will vary by location.

For years we have stood for fitness and now also effective weight loss, both of which Jillian is known for, and we know Jillian's cutting-edge workouts will help women achieve their health goals. We are looking forward to amplifying our Curves Circuit with innovative workouts with a trained Coach for everyone," said Mike Raymond, chief marketing officer for Curves International, Inc.
