Curves Franchise Review

Curves Franchise Review

About.com Rating 4.5 Star Rating


This thirty-minute fitness and weight loss center for women promises a speedy, effective workout for women of any age. Curves is currently seeking motivated people who genuinely care for the health and welfare of women and who want to have fun promoting it. The Franchise’s proven business plan and marketability caused Entrepreneur Magazine to name Curves "The No. 1 Best New Franchise" two years in a row and "The No. 1 Fitness Franchise" for the past six years.

Background and Benefits

Curves is a lot more than just a place to burn off about 500 calories per 30-minute interactive circuit session. This 13-year-old company has the staying power of an industry leader and has assisted over 4 million women. The system is built around resistance machines that work every major muscle group, two muscles at a time, giving you a more efficient and effective workout with every visit. Curves’ easy-to-use plan makes the most of the latest technology in the least amount of time, and that is why it is the largest fitness franchise with over 10,000 locations worldwide.

How Much Does a Curves Franchise Cost?

We love that anyone can get started with this global winner for only $36,425 to $42,850. A Curves franchise can operate in a space as small as 1,000 square feet. This keeps rent and other operating costs low. Payroll expenses are minimal with an in-house franchise owner-operator. Curves suggests you hire a student to work Monday through Friday evenings to keep overhead down. Curves offers financial assistance along with a minimum of one week of required training in Texas. Management will also assist you in purchasing either a new franchise in an exclusive territory or an existing Curves--your choice.

What We Like

Curves offers the answer to accomplishing fitness goals within a busy schedule. Just 30 minutes 3 times a week doing Curves’ exclusive circuit training will do it. Curves can help women at any level of fitness, from beginner to seasoned athlete. Curves also provides the perfect “online companion” with memberships, supplying personalized meal plans, recipes, and advice designed to motivate and inspire women to keep coming through the doors.


  • Ranking - Curves is the largest fitness franchise in the world with 10,000 locations worldwide and in over 60 countries.
  • Funding - Curves offers financial assistance on a case-by-case basis.

  • None - When you consider the minimal investment, global presence, and recession-proof marketability of the franchise, Curves proves its worth in profitability and ease of entry
