We’re excited to introduce you to the newest member of the Farrell’s franchise family, Randy Bachman, new owner of our Farrell’s Ashworth, West Des Moines, Iowa, location!
We caught up with Randy to ask him to share his Farrell’s journey with us!
When did you start your Farrell’s journey?
I started Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping in the summer 2014 session. I had been thinking about joining and wrote the owner of the local Farrell's to get more information. That weekend I went to a Make-A-Wish Foundation event and there was a certificate for a 10-week session signed by founder Lance Farrell. I bid on it and won! It was a clear sign I was meant to be a part of Farrell's. I saw great results from my 10 weeks, had an awesome coach, made a ton of friends, then coached a session and saw the impact it made on others, too. I was hooked.
Why do you want to be an owner?
When someone shows you a picture of themselves when they were 50 pounds lighter and they say, "I want to be that person again" as they fight back tears, when you work with them six days a week and then see them shed tears of joy when they see their results 10 weeks later . . . that's why I do this. I love helping people. I'm passionate about fitness and have 24 years in business. Farrell’s is a great opportunity to bring all of that together and make a positive difference in peoples’ lives.
I love the energy, the people, the history, and Colleen (Leinen), who make Ashworth such a special place. I'm humbled by the warm welcome and support I've received from everyone and am excited about where we're taking Farrell’s Ashworth!

Congratulations, Randy, on your new Farrell’s adventure! We know you’re going to do great things and continue helping people reach their fitness goals with Farrell’s!
