Pound Ridge Curves Marks Women’s Health Week

POUND RIDGE, N.Y.  – Curves of Pound Ridge is giving away a free 30-day membership to any nonmember who visits the club during regular operating hours this week, which is National Women's Health Week. The event is part of Curves International's plan to give away one million free 30-day memberships at participating Curves gyms throughout the United States and Canada during the week.

This annual awareness week, coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Office on Women’s Health, begins each year on Mother's Day and brings together communities, businesses, government, health organizations, and other groups in an effort to promote women’s health.

Curves International has partnered with the federal agency to help promote National Women's Health Week and to provide health and wellness programs and materials to women throughout the country.

"Everyone at Curves of Pound Ridge is excited about our new partnership with this influential government organization," said Joanne Davis, Curves of Pound Ridge proprietor. "We look forward to working with the OWH to offer our members and our community even more resources for living a healthy, active lifestyle."

The theme for the 13th annual National Women’s Health Week is “It’s Your Time.”

Curves has also announced the inaugural National Curves Day celebration, which will take place annually on the Thursday of National Women's Health Week.

Curves of Pound Ridge is holding a week-long Open House to encourage interested women to check out the club, pick up free health information, ask questions, get a free fitness assessment and take advantage of the free 30-day membership offer. Visitors may also sign up to attend a special program on National Curves Day on Thursday, which features messages from health experts and activities designed to raise awareness of small, practical steps women can take to get healthy.
