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 Plymouth FXB. Myself along with our managers, instructors and coaches are ready to help you to take your life to Level 10!
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!
Hi there, I am part of the Farrell's Extreme Bodyshaping management team at the Plymouth location. I am a certified level 1 instructor in both Strength training and Kickboxing. I joined FXB in October of 2014 and I knew right away that's where I was supposed to be. I signed up to become a FIT member as soon as I could. I started instructing in August 2015 and found it was something I really enjoy doing. I have seen some amazing transformations and I am beyond thankful that I get to be a part of that journey. The support and encouragement you get from the other members and instructor and management team is something you don't find in regular box gyms. I started my weightloss journey in a box gym, I was there 5-6 days a week. I would lift weights for hours and hours but I really struggled with getting cardio in. I gained a lot of muscle but I wasn't losing any body fat. When I heard about this Extreme Bodyshaping place I had to give it a try! It was most definitely one of the best things I've done for myself.

Level 2 Strength Training Instructor
I am a mom to two kids. I joined the Blaine Farrell's in March 2011 after my oldest pointed to my belly stating "Baby!" (I had already given birth 8 weeks prior!) I loved the 10 week program and immediately signed up as a FIT member! I started coaching the new 10 weekers the following session and began instructing in the fall of 2011.
I love the Farrell's program because of the dedication from the owners to continue to challenge FIT members every day. At Farrell's, you quickly notice everyone cares about everyone else's goals and making sure you reach them! It's unlike any other gym or program out there! The people, the atmosphere, and the workouts are positive and addicting!
Manager, Instructor Level 2 Kickboxing, Instructor Level 2 Strength Training
I am a student at Bethel University with a major in nursing. I started Farrell’s in April of 2014 to keep myself in shape during the off season of high school dance. A few months later I became and instructor and instantly fell in love with it. My favorite part about Farrell’s is that I get to see more than just the physical change. At the end of every 10 week session I see a huge attitude change. People become confident and just happier over all. It’s the greatest feeling to contribute and encourage people along in their fitness journey. You will not regret your decision of joining this program!
