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.

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.

6 Reasons Why Farrell’s Nutrition Works!

Diets don’t work. Why? Because most diets focus on restricting something, like calories, carbs or fat. Not only is this unhealthy, but also unrealistic. Our bodies are machines that need to be fueled correctly to function properly. Starving your body of vital nutrients is detrimental to both your physical and mental health. In addition, research shows that only 1% of people who diet alone actually lose their excess weight, and more often, gain it all back and sometimes more. Good nutrition is an important pillar of our program. Since our very first 10-week challenge in 2001, Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping has had the same formula when it comes to nutrition – keeping it simple! It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change in food consumption.
