As a wife and mother of 4, I joined Farrell’s in 2012 because even though I was spending a lot of time at a big box gym, I was not seeing the results I was looking for. Our lives were so busy and I needed to spend less time in the gym and see better results. In just 10 weeks, I started to see the results that I wanted to see. I found the kickboxing classes challenged me in a way I had not been challenged before and relieved a lot of daily stress. And combining the kickboxing with strength training I really started the journey to being in the best shape of my life. Shortly after becoming a FIT member I started instructing and now years later am so happy to be an owner of 3 great locations, Shoreview, Andover and Plymouth and part of this fantastic program.
Since I was a teenager, health and fitness has always been a big part of my life. Starting from youth sports then continuing as an adult and completing two marathons, several duathalons and biking the MS150, I have always remained active. Exercise and healthy eating play a large part of the way that my husband and I are raising our family. They are all active in sports and love to get them to play outside to keep them moving.
I have a degree in Management Information Systems and Entrepreneurship. Prior to opening our first FXB location I worked in the clinical department at Medtronic. My work was very close the patients that our devices were saving or improving quality of life of. In the gym, I get to take this a step further. One great phrase that tells the story of what we do is “Our goal is to not only add years to your life but also add life to your years.” We started our Farrell’s Family in 2013 and are excited to keep it growing. Helping great people improve their overall health, not only losing weight, reducing body fat but increasing confidence and getting rid of medications!
Our talented and dedicated team of instructors and coaches are ready to help you reach your health and fitness goals! Live life at Level 10!
I am a wife and mother of 4 children. I joined Farrell’s in summer session of 2011, looking to lose the final 20 pounds of baby weight. I wanted a new challenge beyond my running and my home workout videos, so I joined the local FXB gym. In the first couple of days at Farrell's I was hooked. I instantly fell in love with the program. Farrell's took me from being “kind of" in shape to being “really” in shape. MY 10 week and FIT transformation was amazing. Today, I am in the best shape of my entire life.
I am very passionate about preventative health, physical fitness, and nutrition. My professional background is in nursing. With a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Degree and 20 years of nursing, I have taken care of many patients in hospital ICU’s, dialysis, home care, and cancer centers. In those years the best lesson learned was: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
In 2013 I stepped away from the nursing unit and into Farrell's ownership to serve my true passion which is to impact on people's lives through fitness. The Farrell's program of Cardio Kickboxing, Strength Training and Nutrition had changed so many lives, I wanted to be a part of it. My career switch was nothing less than remarkable. I have the best job in the world! Helping people live a healthier lifestyle and reach their life at LEVEL 10 is a dream come true!
Since opening in 2013, I've heard several life changing stories from my students. Not only have they lost pounds and inches, they've been taken off of several medications, avoided surgeries, and feel healthier and stronger than they ever have in their lives. There is no greater reward than these life changing transformation stories. My goal is to offer the Level 10 Farrell's experience to as many people as I can!
It takes a team effort to create this environment for our students and members. I am very proud to lead such a talented and dedicated team here at Shoreview FXB. Myself along with our managers, instructors and coaches are ready to help you to take your life to Level 10!
My Farrell's journey began January of 2014. I had hurt my back that Fall and had spent over 12 weeks with "no bending, sitting, lifting, or twisting." I was at an all time low and needed a change. I was depressed, overweight and out of shape and my back was weak with 2 bulging discs that would never go away. So, in desperation, I called Farrell's and signed up. Those 10 weeks were life changing for me - I loved the program and had great results! I lost weight and was in the best shape of my life. My back grew stronger and even though I am still plagued with back pain at times, I know that the strength I have gained from Farrell's has saved me from immobility and even surgery. I love the friends and accountability that Farrell's has given me. I love the strength, fitness level and confidence Farrell's has given me. I wanted to give back, so I began instructing April 2015. Every time I teach I hope to give people the experience I was given...I want to give back and make sure they are challenged, encouraged, have fun and help them meet their goals - because that is what my instructors gave me! I love FXB!
I also have the privilege of being a wife to Tim and mother of 4 kids - Max, Marion, Jackson and Roman who all keep me busy when I am not working/teaching at FXB.
I joined Farrell's winter session 2014 with the goal of changing my eating habits. I already had a passion for working out, but I was not very good
at fueling my body with proper nutrition. I did not have a goal weight in mind, I just knew that if I changed my eating habits the results would follow.
I am now 2 years into the program and truly believe in it!! I decided to become an instructor to share my love of Farrell's with others and at the same time challenge myself.
I am a wife and mother of 4 kids ranging in age from 19-12. My husband Lance joined the program after I completed my first session and my now my son Tanner
and daughter Lindsay are members, too. I love the Farrell's atmosphere of friendship and helping others achieve their goals!
Farrell's has become a lifestyle for me.
My sister and her best friend joined the first Farrell’s session in Shoreview, September 2013, and just raved about this new workout 6 days/week. They said it was grueling and that the owners, both women, were in amazing shape and that inspired them. It wasn’t long into the program that they both started to experience a lot of great changes and since I am always looking for a new challenge, I was curious to see what the program was about.
My fiancé at the time reluctantly said he would be my partner, but only for the 10 week session. We began our journey January 2014, as newlyweds, and still made it to the alter. Our lives have changed immensely over the past two years: married, 7 month old baby, instructor (taught my entire pregnancy) and coach for the past 1 ½ years, and my husband is now a 10 week coach.
Farrell’s is not just a place to work out, it’s a lifestyle, a support system, a family, challenging, inspiring…the list is endless and it keeps us coming back six days/week
