Independent PACE customers have several huge advantages over their franchise competitors. Not only can they format their clubs any way they like, they offer members more durable, superior equipment; it is also adjustable to accommodate increasing levels of fitness of their members so they won't hit a plateau as they do with Curves non-adjustable equipment.
Our PACE equipment can accommodate any fitness level, men as well as women.
Many of our independent customers enjoy the best of both worlds by offering a combination of women only hours during the day and then coed hours in the evening. It is common to see couples working out alongside each other; a quick click of the dial on the cylinder immediately changes the resistance. Let's face it, there are just as many out of shape men out there as women- it makes sense to try to appeal to as much of the population as possible.
While "Intimidation" is probably the #1 reason most people do not join a health club, "No Time" is probably a close #2. In today's fast-paced society, most people do not have 1½ - 2 hours a day to spend in a health club to comply with the daily activity recommendations of the US Surgeon General. PACE combines both cardio & strength workouts into a time-efficient 30 minute program.
Some larger coed clubs feature a PACE room as a "Quickie" workout to fit into busy lifestyles while others use PACE as seniors programs or weight loss programs. Want to attract the 80% of the US population that typically does not join a health club? Get PACE!
