Level 3 Kickboxing Instructor Level 3 Strength Training Instructor

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!

Level 3 Kickboxing Instructor Level 3 Strength Training Instructor

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!

After a 15-year career in the restaurant and bar industry in Chicago, I made a decision that for the sake of my health and sanity, I needed to make some changes. I moved to the great state of Minnesota to pursue a calling in the health and fitness field. I’ve always enjoyed working out but felt I needed to take things to the next level. After joining the Shoreview location in October of 2015 I realized that’s exactly what Farrell’s does best: challenge you to be the best you can be! It was exactly what I was looking for and has provided exactly what I needed! Between the encouragement of the tremendous instructors and sense of community provided by our members, Farrell’s is sure to inspire you to live your life at Level 10!!!
Manager, Level 1 Kickboxing Instructor, Strength Training Instructor
I started my Farrell’s journey in April of 2014. I was an athlete my whole life, but I started to get lazy and not work out on my own. I needed to get back into shape, and I was intrigued by kickboxing. I love the mix of cardio and strength training. Most of all I love the community and the friends I have made. I became an instructor because I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone. I have a passion for helping others in their fitness journeys. I love motivating our members, and in turn they keep motivating me to be my best. Taking care of myself (physically and mentally) has become a priority. I am so thankful to Kerrie, Cindi, and our team for creating a positive, challenging, and fun environment at Shoreview.
Strength Training Instructor

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.

 

Level 1 KB and ST Instructor
 
I joined Farrell's with a coworker in January of 2014. I liked that the program offered cardio and strength training, challenged me physically, made me sweat buckets and that I was held accountable. I immediately loved the enthusiasm of the classes and engagement of the members and instructors so I signed up as a member before my 10 week session was up. As a working mom, wife, and friend I appreciated how Farrell's could get me the workout I wanted and needed in just 45 minutes a day. I wanted to challenge myself even more and thought that being an instructor seemed like it was just what I wanted, little did I know how much I would really be getting from it. As an instructor I am constantly impressed by the members we have. They are dedicated, compassionate, fearless, fierce, strong and competitive. As an instructor I will be your cheerleader. I will encourage you, challenge you and get you excited to come back for the next class! You can often find me in the morning working out with my favorite partner, my sister and fellow instructor, Colleen Graf. See you on the mats!
Level 1 Strength Training Instructor

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.

Level I Kickboxing & Strength Training Instructor

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

My name is Jonquil Shipman and I joined Farrell’s in 2012 and have been an instructor since 2016. I had just had my second child and knew it was time to get off the playground bench and start playing with my kids. I love the energy I have since joining the program, not to mention the way my clothes fit My husband Shane and I have been married for 10 years – yes it is normal to choose to be on separate bags! We have 3 children: Henry, Oliver and Tess. If you are keeping track, I did this program while pregnant – if I can answer any how-to questions don’t hesitate to ask. My favorite result: Delivered my boys right at 200 pounds, Tess I delivered at 180 pounds. Farrell’s has given me a lot, but the ability to enjoy my last pregnancy and dare I say delivery was the best gift yet.
Level 2 KB and ST Instructor
 
I started my FXB journey in the Winter Session starting in January 2016; I have always enjoyed being active and was looking for something new to try and Kickboxing sounded like a whole lot of fun!! I quickly became a true believer in this amazing program and with the physically rigorous workouts, nutritional advice and emotional support I was able to push through a long-standing plateau and achieve results beyond my expectations. My passion for this program and it's incredible support network pushed me to become more involved and so I began instructing in May 2016.
As a Cardiac RN I am a daily witness to the oftentimes preventable and tragic consequences of sedentary lifestyles and poor nutrition and I know what a HUGE difference a fitness program like FXB can have in one's quality and quantity of life. And while nursing is my first love, instructing has quickly become a close second; I truly enjoy and find great fulfillment in supporting people on their journey to health ❤
I am so inspired by everyone who makes the (often intimidating) choice to push outside of their comfort zones and transform their lives to become a healthier and subsequently happier and more confident version of themselves; it is an incredible achievement and is always a privilege and joy to witness.
Fitness is a CELEBRATION of what your body CAN do, and such a simple, beautiful thing to be grateful for!
