Farrell’s Boosted My Self-Confidence!

I can't wait to wake up the next morning and see everyone. I have been a Farrell's Ashworth member for three years now and have lost several inches, but the biggest change I notice is my energy. I have an active job and I no longer feel winded during my daily tasks and that is the biggest result I wasn't expecting to see or notice.

At the end of 10 weeks my body fat had dropped to just under 17%. I had lost 35 pounds and felt terrific.* The largest change I noticed was the amount of insulin I needed was less than half what I was using previously.

Hard Work Pays off at Farrell’s

About 18 months ago I was wheelchair bound. I had bilateral fasciotomies in both feet. I have deep vein thrombosis among several other lower body ailments. Chrondo patella syndrome in both knees and degenerative joint disease in my left hip and left ankle. The VA was kind enough to give me a custom wheelchair, but I was not settling for that. If I could still take a step, I was determined to stay out of that chair as a permanent fixture or extension of my body. Today I am a KICKBOXER and doing things I was told I would never be able to do again such as walk, jump, run, etc.

Staying FIT Through Pregnancy!

Making a lifestyle change and carving out time for daily workouts with two young children, ages 4 and 2, is no small feat. It took support from the whole family. My husband was inspired by my results (really, he was just jealous of my energy level and confidence) and began his 10-weeks during the next session. Our family was all in – making good food choices together and finding active ways to spend time together. Rather than putting life on hold while we worked to get healthy, we were going to get healthy while living life!

Farrell’s Has Been One of Our Best Decisions!

As a stay-at-home mom/in-home daycare provider, my days are spent surrounded by children, and having four children of my own, my nights are spent pretty much the same way. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my children, LOVE my life and LOVE running an in-home daycare. But, that being said, I do sometimes miss adult interaction.

Farrell’s Gave Me Back My Hope!

By week 4, I found a groove. Muscles tightened throughout my body, my jeans fit again, and I felt like a Green Beret everywhere I went. By week 5, I was landing my punches and I had beaten up every doctor, every symptom, and much of the trauma. Cutting each tie to the past, I experienced a freedom to move fully into this present moment and feel alive. Our instructors reiterated that each combination of punches and kicks, while at times complicated and confusing, could be accomplished if I completed one at a time. I have extrapolated this philosophy and many others from kickboxing into my life in the real world without gloves.

The Farrell’s System Simply Works

As the pounds continued to fall off, I became more committed to Farrell’s. The gym was no longer just a gym. It had become my second family. Working out at Farrell’s was no longer work; I looked forward to attending each session. I started to interact with others in my class, who previously were just strangers to me. I got involved with some of the activities that Farrell’s hosts outside the gym.

Farrell’s Made Me Ready to Fight!

I never expected to be diagnosed with cancer at the age of 37. But that's what happened. I measure my diagnosis and early days of treatment by the weeks of my Farrell's session. I received my diagnosis on the Tuesday of week 6. I had a bilateral mastectomy on the Friday of week 7. By week 9 I felt great and was back at Farrell's exactly two weeks after my surgery. I will forever credit Farrell's as the main reason why I was able to recover from major surgery so quickly.

Feeling Half My Age at Farrell’s!

Farrell’s has changed my life in so many ways it’s difficult to narrow it down to just a few. I learned that it’s never too late to get in shape, to recapture that magic of youth. I started Farrell’s at 46 years old. I’m now 47 and in better shape than when I was 37, and I’m getting closer to being in the shape I was at 27.

Farrell’s Gave Me Back My Life

I signed up for my first 10-weeks in October 2015 instead of going ahead with the gastric bypass surgery. I knew I was at the best place to get my entire life back, not just a piece of it. I truly cannot thank Farrell’s enough for helping me with my goal of becoming healthy again.
