OWNER / INSTRUCTOR

I grew up in Cedar Rapids and was excited at the idea of moving back from Des Moines to open a Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping location. In June 2007 the Boyson Road location opened and we have since grown to a total of 5 locations in Eastern Iowa. Farrell’s is a program that has helped thousands of people and I’m proud to be a part of it. Our managers, coaches and instructors really set us apart. I can’t imagine a more rewarding way to spend my day!

I started Farrell’s to lose some weight and get stronger. I also wanted to try something different (and a little scary) for myself. My favorite part of being an instructor is encouraging people do things they didn’t think they could, and watching their confidence grow!

I love getting people to push themselves beyond what they thought they could do. There's nothing more rewarding than seeing the self-doubt of someone in my classes turn into self-confidence.

Amy

INSTRUCTOR

I started Farrell's to get some much needed "me" time. As a mom to 3 young kids, I don't get a lot of time to myself. I'm also self-employed so I don't have a true start and stop to my day. My favorite part of being an instructor: Challenging each person and motivating them to do it for themselves!

Dan

INSTRUCTOR

Joining was a decision that I made in the Fall after some bad results from a physical. I had let too many years slip by without taking care of my own health. By the end of the 10 weeks, I had lost 22 pounds and with $1000 I won took some of it for a years membership. I am so pleased with how FXB has improved my Life that I became part of the Team. I enjoy being a coach and instructor for Farrell’s because I hope I can motivate other people to have the same Life Changing Success.

Sherie

INSTRUCTOR
I started Farrell's because I gained weight and I hated how I looked. I had no self confidence. A friend talked me into it 🙂 My favorite part of being an instructor is the smiles, sweat, high 5's and praise to each other during class. Watching the members grit through a tough class and coming back the next day for more, no matter how sore they are. The impact you make in people's lives and the relationships you see develop.

Josh

INSTRUCTOR
I started Farrell's not too long after I lost my grandpa. I learned that I was close to the same weight he was before he got cancer. I knew I needed to make a life change. Also, I was getting sick and tired of being out of breath when I'd run up and down the sidelines while covering football games. My favorite part of being an instructor is helping people reach their goals and seeing everyone's smile after class. I know people tell me sarcastically they hate me, but I know they're telling me they loved the class.

Instructor

Shannon

INSTRUCTOR

I originally started Farrell's just to have some "me time". As a full time fifth grade teacher and mother of two, all my time was devoted to others and I stopped taking care of myself. My favorite part of being an instructor is inspiring others to be the best version of themselves.

Kelly

The reason I started Farrell's was I needed a group fitness class to push myself and hold me accountable! My favorite part of being an instructor is knowing that the people who show up to your class are there to better themselves, and those are the people you want to surround yourself with!
