Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Curves

Alongside to the other causes which I hope I'd be able to help full time, I am proud knowing I've been chosen by Curves Philippines to be their ambassador towards helping women hop into an active lifestyle: 30 minutes, 30 days, a lifetime change.


Curves Bonifacio Global City has pledged to lend its support to Sagip Buhay Medical Foundation Inc. in an effort to raise funds to support its programmes specially in helping women battling breast cancer.Curves Bonifacio Global City has committed to help raise money for the charity through a series of events and initiatives throughout the month of October.
Curves BGC will also promote means of early breast cancer detection and prevention in its clubs such as mammograms, self-breast exams, and regular physical exercise.The women’s-only fitness centre, located on 2F Serendra, McKinley Parkway will waive the joining fee for new members during 1-31 October in return for a donation to Sagip Buhay Medical Foundation Inc.The money raised on behalf of  Sagip Buhay will be used to help indigent women patients of the Philippine General Hospital suffering from breast cancer.


Fe Abrihan, Manager of Curves BGC, said:  “Fundraising for breast cancer charities is something which unites the Curves community globally and we’re delighted to be able to support Sagip Buhay Medical Foundation Inc.

“With one in eight women at risk of developing breast cancer in her life, Curves and its members cannot afford to ignore such a pertinent health matter,” said Abrihan. We are committed to not only support research through funding, but also to increase awareness by encouraging our new and existing members to be breast aware and to lower their risk through exercise.”

Being a brand ambassador of change, through curves, I would want to express my gratitude and help fellow women to support and build awareness, encourage everyone to get moving towards overall positive change – not just towards health but also in our kindred spirits.


Being a woman myself, information is key and educating not just myself but women on how to take good care of our body is something every person needs to pay attention to. Let’s help one another, if not prevent, but by reaching out by helping more women survive breast cancer.
Curves is a facility especially designed for women featuring a complete 30-minute cardio and strength-training program that has been proven to be clinically effective with a positive effect on body composition, metabolism, and resting heart rate. Curves appeals to women of all ages who want a fitness routine that differs from typical gyms, struggle with their weight and fitness, find attending traditional gyms very intimidating, or due to cultural beliefs find exercising in a mixed environment impossible. Founders Gary and Diane Heavin are considered the innovators of the express fitness phenomenon that has made exercise available to millions of women globally, many of whom are in the gym for the first time.

Motivational Minute

“You start out motivated but the voice of failure whispers to you. Here’s how to listen for success.”

Years ago an experiment was conducted in several grade schools. Half of the teachers were told their students were overachievers with supportive families. The others were told they had all underachievers with apathetic families. In reality, both groups were equal, the only difference was the expectation of the teachers. The test scores for the “underachievers” dropped 25 points. The “overachievers” increased 50 points. Known as the Pygmalion Effect, the experiment showed how critical your view of something is and how you’ll react accordingly. How does the Pygmalion Effect show up in your life? It boils down to a form of self-fulfilling prophecy. Label yourself a winner and you’re far more likely to succeed. Tune into only positive messages about yourself and your efforts (especially the ones in your own head) and see how your life is positively affected.

With thousands of locations worldwide, Curves is the world’s largest fitness franchise. Many clubs now also offer new Curves® Circuit with Zumba Fitness®, the only 30-minute class that mixes the moves of Zumba® with the proven strength training of Curves for a wildly effective workout.
