Curves Wexford is offering women a golden ticket to a lifetime of fitness
IN THE Roald Dahl story Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, a golden ticket was the passport to a world of confectionery.
In a reversal of the theme, Curves Wexford is offering women a golden ticket to a lifetime of fitness.
To celebrate four years back in Wexford, Curves has teamed up with local shops for a special promotion.
If you buy something in a participating shop, you will receive a Curves envelope.
One envelope contains a Golden Ticket guaranteeing the lucky winner free lifetime full membership to Curves, currently based at West Point Business Park in Clonard.
There are 5,000 silver tickets to be won with each silver ticket holder allowed to join Curves free of charge.
Most shops on the Main Street are taking part and you can follow Curves on Facebook to check the list of participating outlets and to find out who the lucky winner will be.
Curves is the largest fitness franchise for women in the world.
The Curves regime is based on regular 30-minute work-outs which exercise every major muscle group.
The programme focuses on strength training, stretching and cardio exercises along with nutrition and weight-loss advice.
The mission of Curves is: 'Strengthening Women'.
A Bikini Boot Camp is currently underway at Wexford Curves.
Over 60 women of all ages are taking part in body tone classes, Curves circuits, aerobics and 10 km walks.
The 10 km walks take place on Monday evenings, leaving the club at 6.30 p.m. for a walk around town, and on Wednesday mornings around the Raven Point, leaving the Raven car park at 11 a.m.
These walks are open to members and non-members.
Open circuits are being run on Fridays from 10.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. for the duration of Boot Camp.
This is an ideal opportunity for non-members to drop in, try out the circuit for themselves and see what Curves is all about.
There is no charge or obligation on anyone who comes to try the Curves work-out.
If you would like to book a time for a try-out any Friday this month, telephone (053) 9126962.
