Farrell’s Gave Me Energy to Play with My Granddaughter

My Farrell’s journey began after a fun filled 10-day vacation to the northeast. My wife and I were looking at pictures from our trip and I kept thinking, is that really me? I didn’t recognize myself since I was 50 pounds overweight. I thought that wearing dark shirts would hide my fat, but looking at the pictures I was wrong! You don’t realize it until it creeps up on you and you see it in pictures. I signed up for the next Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping session starting in January, 2015.  Like everyone, I wanted to lose weight and have better health, but with a new granddaughter, I wanted to be the fun grandpa and play with her without running out of breath.

That mile run on a super cold January morning cemented my decision to do Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping – it was one of the toughest things I ever had to do! Following the program creates success. Focusing on the meal plan, hitting every class, and performing at level 10 will result in hitting or surpassing your goals. My competitive nature had me pushing myself with each class despite how awkward I felt being out of shape, running out of breath, and not being able to complete each repetition.

But it is the people at Farrell’s who make the difference… especially the people at the 4:30 p.m. class at Farrell’s Waukee. The support from my other 10-weekers was very helpful because we became more than just workout buddies, we became friends and accountability partners. The coaches and instructors are some of the most encouraging, helpful, and knowledgeable people who always make class challenging and fun. I admire them for doing that as it is not something that I would be comfortable doing! It doesn’t matter what class you go to or who the instructor is, everyone is welcoming and encouraging when you go, even if it is not your normal time. I look forward to going to class every day to see the 4:30 crew!

Looking back at the pictures from our trip just a short year ago, I now think, was that really me? I have lost 50+ pounds, or two of my 17-month old granddaughter, and went from a super tight size 38 jeans to a comfy fitting size 30. I’m no longer out of breath when playing! Farrell’s is now my way of life versus just a program. It has made a significant impact on me so much so that it is a family affair with my wife and daughter joining in the fun as well. Thank you Farrell’s and friends!
