Elite FIT Challenge Winner Announced!
Every year Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping has an Elite FIT Challenge. While most of our challenges involve our 10-week and FIT members, this challenge is specifically for our owners and staff, including head coaches and managers.
This is an opportunity for our members to see that our owners and staff also live Life at Level 10 and challenge themselves.
This 8-week challenge ran through the holiday season (a tough time of year for all of us) and participants had to take before/after photos and record the same measurements we do for our 10-week program at the beginning and end. The individual with the biggest transformation wins a cash prize of $1,000!
This is a big week for announcements as we also just awarded our 2015 National Contest winner from Shoreview with $10,000!
We’re proud today to announce our Elite FIT winner is Brandon Miller from our Beaverdale location in Des Moines, Iowa.
We caught up with Brandon and asked him a few questions.
How long have you been with Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping?
I started FXB during the very first session back in September 2001 at Beaverdale. I then became a coach, kickboxing and strength training instructor, as well as a FIT member.
Why did you want to compete in this Elite FIT challenge?
I wanted to take it to the next level. I ran my first marathon last year and dropped a lot of weight and quite a bit of muscle, too. Building my muscle back up and lowering my body fat were my main objectives. Why I did it was simple. When I am in better shape, I am a better father, husband, citizen and employee. It also was great to spark conversations about my health over the holidays with all of my friends and family at gatherings.
What keeps/kept you motivated?
It had been quite a while since I really set out to achieve something that scared me a bit. I had to use what I teach constantly and set small goals each day and week and with the work and achievement of those, the big stuff takes care of itself. Marking down each lower body workout or keeping track of how many ounces of water and servings of vegetables was very tedious, but worth it. I had great support too from my family at home and our Beaverdale FIT Club as well!
Any additional comments you want to share?
Farrell’s is truly a lifestyle, not just a fad. I have seen thousands of lives change just here at our Beaverdale location for the better over the course of the last 15 years and it works if you work it.
Sometimes you just have to say, “I am sick and tired of being sick and tired”
Lastly . . . don’t miss lower body day!
Brandon lost a total of 14 pounds and decreased his body fat by 4% (down to 9.6%).
Congratulations to Brandon and all of our Elite FIT Challenge participants!
