After all, 30 minutes of 'me' time is always a good thing."


"Women are always looking for new, unique ways to help make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. The Curves 10-Workout Punch Card is a great way to not only donate money to a special cause, but it is also a fun way to help improve your own personal health." said Mike Raymond, vice president of marketing for Curves International, Inc.
