BURNHAM - A growth in both services and customer base has prompted a relocation and expansion of the Burnham Curves.
The Burnham Curves, previously located in the Greater Lewistown Shopping Plaza, opened at its new location at 101 S. Logan Blvd. on Aug. 1, owner Marge Delozier-Noss said.
Delozier-Noss said the reason for the relocation was growth in number of clientele, services and equipment.

The Burnham Curves, which moved to 101 S. Logan Blvd. on Aug. 1, has expanded by about 800 square feet, and has added a variety of new features, including a detoxification sauna, yoga and pilates classes, and new equipment.
"We needed more space for more services," she said. "This facility is just much nicer."
The new location, near The Little Cupcake Shoppe and Bakery, has about 800 more square feet than the old space, Delozier-Noss said.
Besides space for two separate circuits in which members complete a 30-minute fitness program, one new service includes a classroom in which health-related and weight management classes are held.

Having a classroom is important, she said, because the more people learn about health and wellness, the more positive steps they'll take.
Other new services include a pilates class, which already is up and running, and a yoga class, which will launch Oct. 10. Additionally, a detoxification sauna has been added, Delozier-Noss said, which is for both men and women, and can fit two people at once.
The detox area, and the pilates and yoga classes, are open to both members and non-members.
Also, the new location has a treadmill and an elliptical machine, which the former location didn't have, as well as an additional VIBE machine, bringing the total count to two, she said.
The VIBE machine, Delozier-Noss said, aids in such areas as medical rehabilitation, and may help reduce osteoporosis.
Zumba classes also are offered at the Burnham Curves, Delozier-Noss said. Although these classes were available at the previous location, they will be expanded at the new location because the space is more accommodating, she said.
Though the exact number of customers isn't known, Delozier-Noss said there has been an increase in people using the facility.
"Our membership has grown ... all over the age spectrum," she said.
One of the biggest reasons for the increase, she said, is due to certain insurance providers that allow those age 65 and older to use Curves for free.
"We have something to offer all women ... of all ages," Delozier-Noss said in submitted information. "...Curves provides a community of support where women can stick to their diet and exercise plans and reach their goals. So many friendships are created here. We have so many mother-daughter teams working out together. It's fun to watch the smiles on (their) faces when they're exercising ... We have members from (ages) 14 (to) 88."
The Burnham Curves is open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. each Monday; from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m., and from 2:30 until 7:30 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday; from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. each Wednesday; from 6:30 a.m. until 7 p.m. each Friday; and from 8:30 until 10:30 a.m. each Saturday.
