New Location Opens in Brooklyn Park, MN
The Farrell’s family has been working hard to expand, but not in the waistline! Recently Tim and Sara Sanken became the proud owners of their second location, this one in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. After having great success at FXB Maple Grove, they decided it was time to expand their business to reach even more lives.
“Doing something that helped to improve and save lives resonates with our personal values.” says Tim and Sara.
Tim and Sara have been fortunate enough to touch many lives along their Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping journey. Here is one example from a member at FXB Maple Grove.
Meet Nancy J.
As I approach my year anniversary at FXB, I wanted to share a piece of my story. I have bad knees (arthritis and I’ve had 4 knee surgeries), spinal fusion in lower back, hip arthritis, and the worst issue was not feeling good about myself. I was in a cycle of eating, gaining weight, worsening joint issues, and eating because I was feeling bad about all the issues. In the upper middle picture I had just decided I was going to be overweight and middle aged (44 in that pic). Then I saw my friend Tracey Audette’s inspiring pics (summer 2014 winner) and this place called Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping. I decided to give it 10 weeks after many conversations with Tim (owner) about modifications, etc.
Can I do it? I fought against wanting to stay in my comfort zone and decided to just take the leap and DO IT! I told myself I would give it 10 weeks and if I didn’t like it, I would just be done after the time was up! It didn’t take long to get hooked!! I have never in my life worked out consistently for a year!! I have had ups and downs but the ups are huge and the downs were just a nuisance that helped me realize how bad I wanted the goal of being a fit mom to my kids and a grandbaby! I have completed a Tough Mudder 10 mile obstacle course, I have become an FXB instructor, and I have gained confidence. None of these can be measured nor do they have a price tag.
I could not have done it without my husband, Craig, who joined the session after me. Then my 12 year old twins completed the kids program. We enjoy working out and striving to stay healthy as a family. My back is stronger than ever, my knees are doing pretty well and hips too – thanks to strength training on the muscles around these areas.
The friends I have made are now like family! I can’t wait to get to the gym every day! I used to make every excuse in the book why I couldn’t go workout, now I make every effort to get TO the gym!! I love my gym!
