I belonged to Curves years ago and LOVED it. My obese mother even went and was able to do the circut! I stopped going because their hours changed so I couldn't make it in unless I busted butt to get there after work. It was either excerise or let my dog out to pee!! You'll like it...it only took around 30 min and you really get a good toning on there machines. Good luck and keep us updated! Congrats on the new job too!!
