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.

Big Transformations Ahead

Let’s show the world we can make a positive transformation by seeing the best in each other and by showing support for everyone! We won’t make progress by dwelling on the negative, but by standing by each other and for each other, we can be heard and make positive changes that benefit everyone.

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.

My Farrell’s Transformation is Part of My Life!

Many of my friends and family are experiencing health-related issues as we age. I lost my younger brother recently to a health-related illness. I was not content to accept that fate and decided that I needed to make a change in my life. I enrolled at Farrell's.

I Thrive on Farrell’s Positive Atmosphere

As I sit here in Hawaii reminiscing on the last year of my life, I am forever grateful that Farrell’s was brought into my life. Had I taken this once in a lifetime dream trip a year ago, I may not have had the same experiences that I am having today.

Farrell’s is What a Gym Should Be

I will start out by saying that writing this definitely took me out of my comfort zone as I don’t really like putting my life story out there for others to read. However, the past year or so has been a great experience and I have Farrell’s to thank for it . . . so here it goes.

I Had To Change. My Life Depended On It!

I knew that if I wanted to live and be there for my daughter and husband, something HAD TO CHANGE, and it COULDN’T BE TEMPORARY! This needed to be a lifestyle change, but with so little time, how was I going to do it?

The Simple Secret to Getting Results

We hear time and time again how many of our members have tried other gyms, but don’t see results. They go to the gym every day, workout hard, but can’t lose weight, or body fat, or build muscle, or get back in shape. So how is it that Farrell’s can get such amazing transformations?

More Than Just a Workout for German Students

Over 4,500 miles is a long way to travel for a great workout, but Jens and Tom from Germany did just that. Studying at the Berlin School of Economics and Law, they are attending the summer 10-week Farrell’s session in Urbandale, Iowa learning about the Farrell’s franchise for their thesis and figuring out how soon they could possibly open a location in Germany.
