The Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping National Challenge is a one-year challenge for all members, across all 60+ Farrell’s locations. During this yearlong challenge, members must take measurements and fitness tests quarterly, attend at least 70% of classes throughout the year, submit an essay, and take before and after photos. It’s no easy feat!
For the past eight years, we have only awarded one prize to the person with the biggest transformation. This year we added a little more motivation by announcing that we would be awarding two $10,000 prizes – to a female and male winner.
We’re excited to announce that on Saturday, February 4th, member Michael Cochran from our East Peoria, IL Farrell’s location received the surprise of his life from Founder Lance Farrell as he presented him with a $10,000 check for winning our male 2016 National Challenge contest.
For over a year, Michael has committed himself to the Farrell’s program. He began his 10-week session on October 3, 2015, the same date as Julie, our female winner! Upon finishing his 10-week session, he committed to following the Farrell’s program for a full year, entering our National Challenge contest.
Over a year later, his hard work has earned him $10,000 and new outlook on life!
As Michael states, “This journey has really shown me what makes Farrell’s so special. You see, this gym transforms you from the inside out. The coaches and instructors are all coming from the same place as you. They are real, relatable people with struggles and triumphs of their own. Everyone cares about your journey and takes the time to lift you up.”
Owner Flynn McCartney states, “I am extremely proud of Michael and all the members, coaches, instructors, and participants in the 10K National Challenge. This is proof that as long as you work hard and stay consistent, anything is possible. We truly have something special. We have created an environment filled with support and motivation that allows us to get results that most people never thought they could achieve when they first started.”
