Continued From Page 12 daily business hours. “For us 30 minutes is comparable to an hour and a half in the gym in strength training,” O’Connell said of the 30-minute full body workouts. “What’s changed with the Curves workout, is we’ve changed to a system called Curves Smart in 2007,” she continued. “It’s a computer coaching system that ensures you get the maximum benefits from your personal workout.” In addition to the computer coaching guiding the women as they transition through the 30 minute circuit, actual coaches are always on the floor as well. Holding true to her love and drive to help

others and change lives, O’Connell chose to add Jenny Craig to the Oakdale location close to a year and a half ago. “It’s not a merge, I’m a dual brand,” she said. “They are two separate franchises in one building.” The addition of the weight loss program has offered the Curves owner the opportunity to reach a broader range, including men looking for a weight loss program. “It’s been a fantastic combination,” she said. “It’s convenient for Oakdale and the surrounding communities.” O’Connell describes herself as driven, noting: “I mean who has three businesses going? I’m very energetic. I’m definitely energetic. I can go and go and go.” The go getter/owner has Open House events

scheduled for both businesses in September: Sept. 12 through 24 for Curves and Sept. 16 through 25 for Jenny Craig. The community is welcome. For additional information on Oakdale Curves or Jenny Craig, visit www.curveslocal. com/3303 or call 8450553.
