Farrell's Saved My Life !

My wife started the Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping 10-week program July 2015.   Watching her physical and mental transformation was phenomenal. During her 10 weeks we discussed how Farrell’s was helping her.  She stated that she would like me to also join Farrell’s, but that it would do me no good to join just because she wanted me to join. She told me I had to want it for myself, and that declaration changed my life.  I had to want to make the changes that would be necessary to change my life.

On the very first day of my 10-week session, I broke my big toe. I had thought about postponing my transformation but instead I talked with the Oakdale Manager, Brian Alatalo, and we modified my workouts until I was ready to kick with my right foot again.   During the third week, I was having issues with a sore back so I decided to go visit a chiropractor. That adjustment ended up busting my 11th and 12th rib on my right side. Again, I was ready to postpone my transformation. I took a few days off, then I returned, modifying my exercises but still managing to make it through the classes. 

 My success and transformation would not have been possible if it were not for the support of so many people. The members and instructors at FXB pushed me through my workouts.  As a firefighter, I found that I have to have a type “A” personality. I am focused on the small details and competitive with myself. These personality traits served pertinent when it came to improving my health. 

I have a very active and athletic 13 year old son and a busy 7 year old daughter. Prior to Farrell’s, my fitness level made it difficult to keep up with their daily routines and sporting activities. We would work on baseball and softball skills and I would be winded by the time we were done.  I feel that a dad should be active in his children’s lives.   I made a very important realization during my transformation that I needed to better myself before I could help better them! I am now able to complete more activities with my kids.    

As a fireman we have to do physical assessments. During our last physical assessment testing I was able to use one air pack for almost twice as long as I had previously.  What does that mean?  Farrell’s has not only increased my strength but also my endurance.  This milestone could make a difference in saving a life, especially my own.  I no longer worry that I may be the person my fellow firefighters may have to rescue on a call.

I would like to end this by noting the results of my most recent physical.  Not only have I lost 105 pounds since I started the program, my blood pressure was significantly lower along with improvements in my cholesterol levels.  I can honestly say that right now I feel the best I have ever felt, both physically and mentally.   Not only has Farrell’s become a lifestyle change, it has also been a life saver—it improved my health and definitely lengthened the amount of time I will be around for my kids.

I started Farrell’s January 2014. I did not like the way I looked in my clothes, felt uncomfortable in my own body and had a hard time enjoying the rides at amusement parks with my family due to my weight. Yes I thought I was working on becoming healthier because I was a member at gym for a few years and would go in and work out. I first started going a regular basis and getting on those machines doing what I thought would get me in shape. I really did not know what I was doing but thought it was better than doing nothing at all. Then I would come up with excuses like I am too tired, I don’t want to get out in the cold to go work out, I would rather talk on the phone, watch my son at his swim practice and only go when it was “convenient” for me. At this time I had a friend who was doing Farrell’s and thought that I could never do it because I was not in shape like she was and there was no way I was going to work out in front of other people. I like to hide and do my own thing. I knew what I was doing was not working for me and kept hearing those commercials on the radio about how Farrell’s can transform your life. When I heard those commercial I always thought to myself, yeah right, but knew I needed to try something different. It took me a while to finally get up the courage to go in and sign up. I remember I was so nervous walking through the door that my heart was pounding and I was even kind of embarrassed going in. There was a class going on and it looked very intense. I thought to myself that there was no way I could keep up with the class. The person signing me up was very friendly, and could tell I was nervous coming in. They talked a lot to me about the Farrell’s program and told me that I could do it. So I finally signed up!

During my 10 weeks, I lost weight, inches, body fat but still had a long way to go in my mind. Still feeling a little nervous about working out in front of others, I decided to sign up as a FIT member because this program was actually working for me!

I started Farrell’s only knowing one person, being very shy, not being confident in myself, being tired and down with life, and weighting 205lbs. Now with the help of the Farrell’s program I have a lot more confidence in myself with all the support from everyone from the manager, instructors, coaches, and other FIT members. I eventually became confident enough to become a coach and an instructor!

Farrell’s is not like any other gym. I would not call it a gym. Yes, you do go in and work out at your level 10, but it is a place where people are very encouraging, non-judgmental, made up for all ages and body shapes. It has a great social atmosphere where you will make some new friends who have the same goal as you, to have a heathier life style! I consider Farrell’s to be my second family.

I Hold My Head Up High Because of Farrell’s!

Although the physical results are great, they are not what I treasure most about this journey. What I treasure the most is the mental transformation I have made. I feel like a whole new person. I have energy, I sleep better, I am happier and my self-confidence is evident in everything I do.
