Curves of Richmond Hill will give a free 30-day membership to any non-member who visits the club during regular operating hours throughout National Women’s Health Week, Sunday, May 19.

This annual awareness week, coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Office on Women’s Health (OWH), 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 OWH to help promote National Women’s Health Week and to provide health and wellness programs and materials to women throughout the country.

In further support of this partnership, Curves announces the inaugural National Curves Day celebration, which will occur annually on the Thursday of National Women’s Health Week. Curves International aims to give away 1 million free 30-day memberships at participating Curves gyms throughout the United States and Canada during the week-long event. Any non-member who visits a participating Curves club during National Women’s Health Week will be eligible for this free membership offer.

Curves of Richmond Hill will hold a week-long open house event during National Women’s Health Week to encourage interested women to check out the club, pick up free health information from Curves and the OWH, ask questions, get a free fitness assessment and take advantage of the “1 million free 30-day memberships” offer. Visitors may also sign up to attend a special program on National Curves Day, Thursday featuring messages from health experts and fun activities designed to raise awareness of small, practical steps women can take to get healthy.

“Everyone at Curves of Richmond Hill is excited about our new partnership with this influential government organization,” said Delene Broeckling, Richmond Hill Curves franchise owner. “This relationship confirms the value that the Curves program offers to women by promoting regular exercise, nutrition guidelines and community fitness events. 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.” National Women’s Health Week empowers women to make their health a top priority. It also encourages women to take the following steps to improve their physical and mental health and lower their risks of certain diseases:

• Visit a health care professional to receive regular checkups and preventive screenings.

• Get active.

• Eat healthy.

• Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.

• Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking and not wearing a seatbelt or bicycle helmet.
