Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping® has been motivating members to continue to live a healthy lifestyle by holding an annual challenge with two grand prizes of $10,000 to the male and female with the biggest transformation. Members across all locations in every state compete for this title, but as most will tell you, it's not about the money, it's about reaching their goals and living a longer, healthier and happier life.

"I tell everyone I meet about Farrell’s. It made such a profound change in my life. People are sometimes concerned that they won’t be able to follow the program, worried that the workouts are too hard. I tell them about how I started and where I am now. This is truly a program anyone can follow. Farrell’s works because there is a real feeling of community when you’re there. People are actually concerned for you and extremely supportive, like family."

Joel J. is a member at our Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping Ashworth-West Des Moines, IA location.
"Farrell’s instilled in me two great benefits to help change my life. The first was information. The second gift Farrell’s gave me was the network of support, enthusiasm, and praise. I have made some relationships that will be life-long with people with similar goals and struggles . . . Farrell’s is not a diet and exercise regimen, it is a system that helped me find strengths buried deep inside me. Farrell’s taught me how to transform my life and find confidence and worth in myself."

Paul W. is a member at our Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping Omaha, NE location.
"A definite change was happening. Friends and family began to notice a difference in me. They said they had never seen me happier or more outgoing. I started to do things I hadn’t done. 5 K runs, biking and outdoor adventure hikes, and I was enjoying them! However, I think the best part of this transformation is that I am doing all I can be to be healthy, and in the process, I am able to provide an example to my two daughters about the value of fitness."
