Friendly Fitness! Farrell’s opens in Bloomington, Illinois
Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping’s new franchise in Bloomington, IL opened its first 10-Week Challenge session with a large group of participants. Nearly 100 people will work out 45 minutes a day, 6 days a week, participating in kickboxing and resistance training classes to make dramatic improvements to their fitness levels.
The contestant with the most impressive transformation will win $1000, and everyone who finishes the 10-Week Challenge will have amazing results to show their family and friends.
The success rate of students at Farrell’s is what sets the program apart and has fueled the expansion of the franchise. Owners, Flynn McCartney and Pat and Tamara Thomas are great examples of the type of growth Farrell’s is experiencing.
“This program works,” Pat Thomas says, “we’ve seen it time and time again. We help our participants to achieve more than they ever realize is possible.”
Flynn and Pat met several years ago while working out at Farrell’s together in West Des Moines, IA. Both men had great results, but neither of them won their first 10-Week Challenge. They continued to follow the Farrell’s workouts and nutrition guidelines and Pat had lost 60lbs. after 14 weeks in the program and Flynn has lost 135lbs over several years.
The two remained friends and stayed in contact after Pat and Tamara moved to Cedar Rapids to be near Tamara’s family and open their first Farrell’s location in 2007.
Flynn and his wife Linsey also moved to be near family, but their move was to Farmer City, IL, near Bloomington.
Flynn says, “I’ve known for a long time that I wanted to be part of this. Bringing FXB (Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping) to my family and friends in Bloomington feels great. I want to help others achieve their fitness goals.”
