My name is Mark. My journey started with Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping after seeing a few pictures of a good friend and his wife on Facebook that another friend had posted after they had completed their 10-week challenge at Farrell’s. I was extremely shocked and impressed to see the results from their challenge. I called my friends and asked them about the program and without hesitation they all spoke very highly of Pete, Farrell’s, and their fitness transformation program.
About seven years ago I switched careers and joined a great sales team. Between the travel, crazy schedule, and poor eating habits, I had gained 85 lbs. putting me in at 300lbs. I had always enjoyed working out, but didn’t have the drive, motivation, and sadly, the will to do so. My confidence level dropped tremendously, my self-esteem was horrible, and I just gave up. While watching my friends starting new workout plans and losing weight I was jealous and wished that was me in their shoes.
I talked with another friend that had been working out and on a proper nutrition plan and watched him lose weight like it was nothing. I told him about Farrell’s Bettendorf and he didn’t even hesitate and said, “let’s do it, I’ll join with you”! Even though he didn’t need to join he stepped in and along with three other friends in the program helped to motivate me and get me going.
The first two weeks were crazy! Holy cow was I sore from the kickboxing and strength training, but I knew nothing worth having in life comes easy and I stayed the course. With the help from Pete and the rest of the coaches at Farrell’s, I changed my eating habits and my lifestyle. Here I am, 10 weeks later, down 27 lbs., lost a total of 24 inches, and decreased my mile run by 4 minutes.* Ugh, that dreaded mile run.
(*Individual results may vary.)
My friends, family and co-workers were noticing the changes right away! Boy does that ever make you feel good. The support of my fellow class at Farrell’s is amazing, everyone is there for the same purpose, which truly keeps me motivated to get my butt in the gym and keep improving my health and my life.
I can’t thank Pete and the rest of coaches enough for kicking our butts and keeping us motivated.
