Not a clue about the Gazelle, but I've tried out Curves before. The only thing I don't like about them is that there's just one work out. If you get sick of it, you're stuck doing the same thing. I'd rather pay about the same amount and join the local YMCA which has classes, cardio equipment, weight training equipment, a pool, gym, ect. Everybody I know that has joined Curves has quit within 3 months from boredom. Not sure if it matters to you, but every Curves center I've seen doesn't have childcare either.

I tried Curves. I got bored with in in less than a month, I went 4 days a week with freinds. I gave up after two months when I weighed in at the same weight that I started at. Like the other comment, I would spend the money on the gym or YMCA that offered more classes so you have more variety.

Sorry to hear all of the negative comments about Curves. I have just joined on the advice of three friend who all look fabulous since they joined. The thing that I like about it, yes I admit it I hate excercising. I think it is all boring. But in and out in 40 mins including stretching, motivates me particularly on those mornings when I don't feel like. As for the boredom I can handle boredom for 40 mins 3 times a week. Wish me luck!

Curves works as hard as you do..I joined a few years back and I found that I gained quite a bit of muscle..but never did lose any weight..the other ladies were fun to be around but I just couldn't stay with the program.
I wish you Good luck and have fun! Very Happy

When you say "Gazelle" are you talking about the ski type machine??

I have just brought one and I find having the television on one of the music channels and going in time to the music helps, or listening to my MP3 player.

Hi I enjoyed Curves, loved the fact that it wasnt a bunch of skinny woman looking at me, we were all in the same boat. My problem with Curves was the limited time that they were open, didnt work for my lifestyle, closing at 7pm was too early for me.
