2 The Daily Tar Heel Thursday. February 3, 1977
So you think you can fit into last year's swimsuit?
Area figure salons can help you shape up to ship out for spring break
by Phyllis Faulkenbury
Chapel Hill figure and health salons think
they can help.
Whether you're male or female, the
programs offer noticeable results within a
month. Each stresses dieting, exercise and
lots of moral support.
Brenda Johnson, a Chapel Hill resident,
lost 8 1 pounds and 77 inches in seven months
at one of the figure salons. "I used to weigh
230 pounds," she said. "But the salon was

Student Association, where he had voted for
the Public Accomodations Act, which later
became civil rights legislation.
Spearman said there was controversy over
what role SG should play in civil rights, and
he was criticized by conservative elements
for his views.
"Students played a very, very active role in
getting the speaker ban law repealed," he
said. The 1963 legislation forbade anyone
who was a Communist or suspected to ee a
Communist from speaking on any state
Spearman said he spoke to- civic clubs
across the state about the issue and appeared
before the N.C. General Assembly. The next
year, SG,. led by Paul Dixon, filed suite
against the state that helped in changing the
A decade later, Bill Bates' administration
also was caught in controversy, but it was
controversy over frictions within SG itself.
CGC Treasurer Mike O'Neal drew fire from
all directions for freezing student fees
appropriations to the Black Student
Movement and the Daily Tar Heel.
Bates recalled that there was much talk
about petty bickering, and he said he was
surprised at how bitter people got on either
side of the issue.

There are four health clubs in the Chapel

exercising, and the decor is all Carolina blue.

But Bates said that he is actually "very,
very pleased" about the things his
administration did. He pointed to the
passage of a Student Bill of Rights and the
hiring of a student attorney.
Bates' term was preceded by a hard
campaign that was essentially a three-way
race. The old parties were dead. He said that
unfortunately, personalities rather than
issues often win a race, but he feels personal
contact is the key.

Bates said that students have an unlimited
potential to voice their opinions through a
new administration, but they don't take
advantage of it.
He said that it is always hard to get
students to sacrifice time to get involved in
SG. But their involvement is essential, since
otherwise the student body president is faced
with the impossible task of representing
20,000 different student opinions.
"There's a whole lot of powr in the
student body president that students don't
see," Bates said. "The Alumni Association,
the administration, etc., look to the student

The Spa also offers yoga classes and
special student rates. For $135 a student can
use the facilities there any day except
Saturday before 5 o'clock, and for $175 she
can have unlimited visits at any time during
Beth Cole, 1975 UNC graduate and
manager of the Spa, said, "Students see the
biggest results. The way 1 see it students
won't lose anything but weight by coming
here. It's almost like a social event
sometimes. Students come in clans and just
have a good time."
The Spa also offers group rates and one
The Chapel Hill Athletic Club has
everything the Figure and Health Spa does
in the line of luxuries. But all the exercise
equipment is Nautilus, and the program
there is just for men. Located in Eastgate
Shopping Center, the Athletic Club costs
$180 per year for students.
Like the Health Spa, the Athletic Club
meets with each member personally and
works out goals for him to reach. The rest of
the program involves giving a member the
moral support he needs to reach those goals.
Manager Jim Moore said that men are
more serious than women when they join a
health club. "If they spend their money, they
want to get their money's worth," he said.
"Here they can get a complete workout in 30
45 minutes. That's a lot better than spending
two or three hours in a gym."
If a member needs to go on a strict diet to
lose weight the Club refers him to a
Greg Watts, an instructor at the Atheletic
Club, said that most men are interested in
decreasing their waist size and increasing
their chest size. "They want to get rid of that
gut, and we help them do it," he said. "But
more importantly, we can help them have
good overall physical health."
The Nautilus Fitness Center, located on
Highway 15-501, also has a complete line of
Nautilus equipment, plus a whirlpool and a
The Center has programs for both men and
women, and like the other Health clubs,
stresses dieting and personalized exercise
programs. The cost is $150 for nine months,
but students can arrange shorter
"If they want us to, we'll pull out the tape
measure," said Don Matheson, manager. "If
they stick to the program, they may see
results inside of a month. But that's a big if.

Matheson said that by following this
program men and women can increase
strength by 40 to 60 per cent within two
months. "A lot of women don't realize that
they can increase strength without increasing
muscle size," Matheson said. "1 think if they

have to sweat a little to get it off. At least here
you can socialize while you're doing it and
then relax in a hot sauna."
Gloria. Marshall's Figure Salon is based
on the assumption that "a woman doesn't
have to mess up her hair and work up a sweat
in order to improve her figure." The plush
red and white decorated salon uses machines
that do all the work for the woman, so that
all she has to do is relax and "enjoy loosing
The program begins ' by showing the
customer a video tape that informs her,
"Gloria Marshall is a real woman who once
had a weight problem just like yourself."
From there the woman is placed on a diet
designed by the nutrition department at
UCLA called the Personal Slim Plan (PSP).
The diet is based on the size dress the woman
wishes to fit into after she loses weight.
She is measured every ten hours, and at
the beginning of the program an estimation
of how long it will take her to lose the weight
is made. The price of her program is based on
this and comes with a guarantee that says if
she stays on the diet and completes three
exercise treatments a week for the time
planned at the beginning of the program yet
still does not lose weight, the program will be
extended at no extra cost.
Pat Freeman, a UNC graduate and
manager of the salon, says that the program
really d oes work because "it teaches you how
to eat, and you don't gain it back." Besides,
you don't have to waste time changing
clothes and redoing your hair after you
exercise. You get the same results, but you
don't have to do all the work."

Dianne Keith, YMCA instructor, said the
program includes exercises "for stretching
and for trouble spots such as the stomach,
thighs and hips. "But women have a fear of
sweating," she said, "and if you want to burn
up calories, you have to get hot. So many
times women stop exercising when they
begin to sweat a little, and naturally they
don't get the results they want. And of course
you have to go on a diet."
The men's program is much like the
women's program, but includes weight
training as well.
But if you're interested in saving money,
the UNC P.E. Department has programs
similar to the figure and health salons. Ben
McGuire, director of intramurals, and the
first male teacher of figure control, said,
"The course offers no plushes. But we do
offer a wide variety of exercises designed to
improve every muscle of the body. And we
focus on particular body parts."
The course teaches the student proper
eating habits and includes an individual plan
based on her particular needs.
McGuire said that so far no male students
have taken the course. "! think the name of
the course keeps triefh away," he said. He
also added that most males are interested in a
more strenuous program, but any male with
a weight problem would benefit from the
Mary Jennings, another figure control
instructor, said that if a student places
herself on a diet and exercises daily, she will
lose weight. "One student lost 15 pounds in

David Stroupe, instructor of weight
training, said the class he teaches is for both
men and women and offers a combination of
exercises for increases in both endurance and
strength. He stressed that though the

will require more exercise time than the
Nautilus equipment offered by the
commercial health clubs," the Universal
equipment is fine for the active student. He
can use it to build up strength, and then play
a sport to build up his endurance.
Stroupe said that exercising on the
Universal (weight) equipment alone
wouldn't cause a person to lose weight, "
it will help you to look better, and cause you
to have more self-confidence," he said.
The weight training classes also offer
personal programs. Stroupe meets with each
student and plans goals for the semester.
"Our gym contains all the facilities a person
needs for good physical health," he said.
"And it's all right here. You don't have to
drive off campus."
Students report good results from both
types of exercise programs. Craig Philbeck,
.a member of Stroupe's weight training class,
said, "I lift weights because it's good for your
mind and your body. It's good for your mind
because it gives you more confidence to
know you're in good shape, and it's good for
your body for obvious reasons."
