There are probably some very good reasons this Curves club is closing. Thousands of Curves clubs have closed in the last few years; so many, in fact, that the Wall Street Journal ran an article on this topic: *******online.wsj****/article/SB10001424052748704862404575351293938715632.html?mod=WSJ_hps_LEFTWhatsNews.

Unhappy current and former Curves franchise owners blame the corporate office for the high number of closings citing over-saturation of territories, high franchise and advertising fees, inferior non-adjustable equipment (you CAN'T adjust it even if you wanted to), lack of support, etc.: ***********unhappyfranchisee****/curves-robert-lays-story/

Anyone interested in buying a Curves franchise should do their homework first. There are far superior products out there without getting locked into a franchise.

By the way, Zig Zigler does not endorse Curves; he is dead. Much like the Curves concept.
