I heard that it was a real easy workout. My doctor even mentioned it to me. I usually walk for exercise but I live in NY and in the winter I normally don't walk much. In fact I will think of every excuse NOT to walk. The weather is too hot or too cold etc.......... So, I figured if I paid to go somewhere that I would do it because I wouldn't want to waste the money. I bought a one year membership and went twice before I actually bought it to make sure it would be okay. Well, it's been a few weeks now and I am at the point where I can barely move beccause of my back. I hurt my back on one of their workout machines but don't know which one. There are two machine that I already avoid but can't figure out which one or pretty much all of them combined hurt my back. Anyhoo, just wondering if anyone else has joined or belonged to Curves at one point and had a LOT of intense pain and I don't know whether to continue with it and eventually the pain will go away or to try to get my money back by getting a note from my doctor which is the only way to get out of their contract.
