Farrell's Extreme Bodyshaping Changed My Life!

January 2016 I joined Farrell's Extreme Bodyshaping. My sister attended the the prior 10 week session in Dubuque and she absolutely loves her results. I figured if she loved it, why wouldn't I?

Before I started the Farrell's ten week session I was the heaviest weight I had ever been. I hated what I saw when I looked at myself in the mirror. My clothes did not fit the way I liked and I refused to buy anything new. It was time for me to make a change. Being new to the area I had no clue where to start. So I called my sister for advice. She helped me find a location close to where I live, I registered on-line and never looked back. It was the best Christmas gift I could have ever given to myself. 

I walked into orientation very nervous and somewhat frightened. I had absolutely no clue what I was getting myself into but I knew there was no turning back. I had to make this change for me. It was time for me to take control of my life again. The coaches and instructors did an amazing job at welcoming all of the new participants with open arms and making us feel as comfortable as possible the minute we walked through the front door.

By week 2,  I knew that I would stay on after the ten weeks and I would become a FIT Member. It was exactly the route I was going to take to continue on with my new "Life at Level 10 " lifestyle. I loved the way I felt when our workouts end each day. The group atmosphere is something that I had never experienced before at any other gym. Having so many helpful people is what made me want to keep coming back for more. Everyone at Farrell's is there to see each other succeed and they do everything and anything in their power to make sure we all do!

At about week 7 of my 10 weeks, I decided that my ultimate goal was to eventually become an instructor. I wanted to help others the way the amazing instructors helped me. I knew that in order to become an instructor I had to step completely out of my comfort zone. I have Heather Jurgenson to thank for helping me achieve the steps towards my ultimate goal. Heather continues to push me to become the best instructor that I know I can be and gives me the confidence I need when I feel like maybe it's not for me.

At my 10 week testing, I had lost 13 lbs, 13.5 inches and 3.5% of my body fat. My body was starting to change in ways I never thought possible. The clothes that were once too tight, we're now too big. A great problem to have.  I continue to push myself every day in order to keep seeing the changes that I want for myself.

I have every FIT member, my coach Heather, the instructors and both Business Managers Pete and Chris to thank for helping me thru this new amazing new journey in my life. Without all of you, this would not be possible. The Farrell's Extreme Bodyshaping program is changing lives one jab, cross, kick, squat and push-up at a time! I'm very grateful that I can say my life is one of them!!!
