Owned and operated by three women Norma, Nora, and Raechelle, Curves in
Issaquah Highlands High Streets Retail Village is a workout facility specifically
designed for women to have a safe and comfortable place to exercise. The idea
behind Curves is to allow women to support one another in a healthy environment,
feel confident and socialize together.
Norma lived in San Diego, at the time the idea hit her to open a Curves of her
own. When she tried to open the franchise in San Diego space was limited and
she had to look elsewhere. She called her daughter, Raechelle, here in
Washington and sprang the idea of opening a Curves in the
Issaquah/Sammamish area. Raechelle joined the nearest Curves, at that time in
Lynnwood, and was sold on the idea.
Norma then called her sister, Nora, and the three ladies joined forces to make
Curves a multi-location business. The next step was finding additional locations.
Raechelle lived in Issaquah. There were no Curves in close proximity, therefore
the ladies decided the Eastside would be their target location. They opened their
first Curves on Mercer Island in May 2002. It was a success, and they soon
decided to open another location. In August 2002, Curves opened in Issaquah
Commons (next to Foot Zone) in Issaquah.
The ladies are very successful in their business, most likely, because they believe
so strongly in the fundamentals and foundation for Curves. “Women have such
busy lives and we want to help them have somewhere to go to relax and have fun,
comfortably and confidently,” says Raechelle. “I truly believe this was the plan for
me. It’s hard work, but I couldn’t possibly imagine my life without having done
Curves loves being a part of the Issaquah Highlands community. “It’s such a great
community, I love that it has a touch of the city feel, yet still feels like a village,”
says Raechelle. Curves enable women to have a complete workout in 30 minutes.
Each facility is equipped with hydraulic resistance machines. These machines give
resistance in the pushing and pulling motion, which is how a full workout can be
done in 30 minutes. Within the 30 minutes, you also receive a cardio workout.
