I began FXB in 2007 with a couple friends.
FXB has given me the confidence to do so many other things I never thought was possible and I've met some amazing people along the way!
Outside of FXB I like to stay active, running, biking, participating in triathlons, ect.
You will find me at FXB in the mornings, instructing at all AM class times and an occasional PM class.
Owner of FXB Altoona
I started FXB in June 2008.
After going through my ten week session, I started to coach and instruct.
The one thing I love about the Farrell's program is the fact that every member, coach, instructors and owners all started as a ten week member!!!
I instruct at all times but can mostly be found during the PM classes.
Kickboxing Instructor

Member Since: 2009

Level 3 Kickboxing & Strength Training Instructor
I started my first 10 week session in June 2006 at the Urbandale location and my second 10 week session in March 2009 at the Altoona location.
The workouts, people, and accountability of showing up to class was something I didn't want to give up. So I signed up for a year and by the end of June I was instructing strength class.
Outside of Farrell's you will find me training for triathlons and spending time with my family.
You will find me instructing at 4am and have been since I started instructing in 2009. I hope to see you dark and early at 4am!
I started FXB Altoona in January 2010.
What I love most about the FXB program is the built-in support and accountability that comes from the community.
Outside of Farrell's, my husband and I try to keep up with our 5 kids. We like to stay active as a family - whether it is at the baseball field, basketball court, riding bikes, or just jumping on the trampoline.
You can find me instructing kickboxing or bands at 8:30 PM.

I started my Farrell's journey in May of 2009 and instruct kickboxing and
strength training. I love the group atmosphere for pushing myself to
levels I would never attain by myself and, of course, I love to hit the bag
and banding up.

Outside of Farrell's I like to spend time with my family, fishing, camping,
backpacking, and Bible studies.

You can find me attending and instructing at 6am and, on rare occasions,
enjoying a workout with my friends at 4am.

I started Fall Session of September, 2007. In my 9th year of Farrell's!!
It's family!!! There isn't a better way to put it. I love watching the success people have in the program and for a lot of those people they've never had that with any diet or exercise program they've attempted. It's just very satisfying to know that I've been a small piece in that success. We're in it together!!
I like to bike, lift, and I'm thinking about picking up kayaking and/or swimming. If the knees can take it, I'd like to continue to compete in obstacle course races.
Class times you will find me teaching are 4:30 and 5:30.
Started Farrell's in June 2010.
I enjoy the combination of strength and cardio training and the friendships I've developed.
Makes the workouts fun and helps to keep me accountable.
Outside of Farrell's I hang out with my family and enjoy outside activities.
You can workout with me primarily in the evenings at 4:30 and 5:30, but will pop in on a 5am class on Friday's.
