Curves member still going strong at 90


Curves of Martha’s Vineyard celebrated a unique milestone last week. Mary Lu Hough of West Tisbury, a Curves of Martha’s Vineyard member since the women’s fitness center opened in May 2004, turned 90 years of age.

When she arrived for her regular workout she was surprised to see a sign on the wall, “We love you, Mary Lu. Happy Birthday!”

“We are absolutely thrilled with Mary Lu. She is a true inspiration to all of us at Curves,” owner Bethany Seidman said. “Mary Lu Hough’s achievement is creating a buzz in the club and we’re excited to share that with everyone, including the local community.”

When asked, “What’s your secret?” Mary Lu answered, “Curves and a martini at 5.”

Curves is located off State Road in Vineyard Haven. For more information call 508-696-3030 or go to
