FAQs for Farrell's Ames

When you guarantee results like we do, there can be a lot of anxiety about what to expect. We understand. Take a look at our FAQs below to find out what you can expect from our programs.

Farrell's Ames is a 10-week group fitness program for anyone wanting to enhance their current lifestyle. Classes are 45 minutes long, six days per week, taking turns between cardio kickboxing and strength training. All members receive our 10-Week Challenge, nutrition coaching, meal plans, personal coaches, and a supportive and reassuring environment to achieve their goals.

That depends on the individual. While weight is an important factor in your health, focusing exclusively on weight loss will only produce short-term success. We target body fat loss, not just weight loss, to ensure your journey to a healthier way of life is well-rounded!
We offer three flexible enrollment options and work with you to select the one that fits your needs. We recommend contacting your preferred location for more details. We offer a free week of classes to try the Farrell's program!
Each enrollment option varies based on your needs. For specifics on what each enrollment option includes, please call your local Farrell's.
All Farrell's locations use the industry-leading, heart-rate tracking, wearable Myzone. Members may get a Myzone belt to use in and outside of the gym. Myzone is an integral part of the Farrell's program and is used to monitor heart rate during both our HIIT-style cardio kickboxing workouts and strength training classes. Instructors and coaches use Myzone to determine the tempo of the class and ensure members are reaching their Level 10!
Want to learn what you’re really made of? Understanding your body composition is the first process toward recording your results. At Farrell's, we use InBody, an award-winning body composition analysis scale, which breaks down fat, lean body mass, minerals, and body water. InBody verifies the results you’re receiving on the mats onto paper, so you can see how much body fat you’re losing and how much lean muscle you’re creating!
Our workouts aren’t over-the-top, but the results you’ll achieve if you stick to our program are. You’ll be able to modify your workouts to your chosen level of intensity, while heading toward your own goals. We also offer adjustments for all of our exercises to ensure an awesome workout.

According to Merriam-Webster: ex·treme, adjective: “exceeding the ordinary, usual or expected.”

Of course not! When we kick off our 10-Week Challenge, everyone starts together. We have members of all ages and fitness abilities, each with different goals. And keep in mind, all of our coaches and instructors were formerly students too.
This is exactly why we schedule our 10-Week Challenges—so everyone starts and ends as a group. We start each 10-Week Challenge by showing you how to do the most fundamental fitness kickboxing and strength training exercises, building on those foundational moves during your 10 weeks. It won’t take long before throwing combinations at the heavy bag will feel instinctive.
Nutrition is a core element of your transformation at Farrell's. That’s why we made our nutrition program uncomplicated! We’ll personalize and instruct you on simple practices that will keep you excited and going in the right direction. From basic meal planning to complete nutrition coaching, we will be there to give you the support you need to be successful.
We’re 100 percent confident that our program will help you reach your fitness goals. If you give us 10 weeks, you will experience results.* When you are done with the 10-Week Challenge, you will get results—or we’ll pay you $500 cash.
Yes. Over 152,000 people have completed our 10-Week Challenge and have gotten real results!* We have thousands of before and after photos of our winners from all of our locations to highlight all the results members have reached. But don't take our word for it—hear from our members yourself to see what you can achieve.
If you’re on vacation, please reach out to the Farrell's near you for free accommodations. We love to meet new members of our Farrell's family!

*Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping guarantees that you will see growth in your physical fitness. If you stick to our 10-Week program as described and do not have improvement in at least 70 percent of your fitness testing, we will refund all your money. Since we cannot be with you outside of class and can only educate you on and encourage good eating habits, members must provide their food logs weekly during the challenge to aid us in better coaching you to reach great results. Your own results may vary.
