FAQs for Farrell's Des Moines

When you promise results like we do, there can be a lot of questions that come up about what to expect. We get it. Take a look at our FAQs below to find out what you can expect from our programs.

Farrell's Des Moines is a 10-week group fitness program for anyone wanting to improve their current way of living. Classes are 45 minutes long, six days per week, alternating between cardio kickboxing and strength training. Every member receives our 10-Week Challenge, nutrition coaching, meal plans, personal coaches, and a supportive and reassuring environment to achieve their goals.

That depends on each individual person. While weight is an important factor in your health, focusing entirely on weight loss will only lead to 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 meets your needs. We recommend getting in touch with your preferred location for more details. We offer a free week of classes to try the Farrell's program!
Each enrollment option is different based on your needs. For details on what each enrollment option includes, please contact your local Farrell's.
All Farrell's locations offer the industry-leading, heart-rate tracking, wearable Myzone. Members may buy a Myzone belt to wear in and outside of the gym. Myzone is an important 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 speed of the class and ensure members are hitting their Level 10!
Want to learn what you’re really made of? Being knowledgeable about your body composition is the first move toward tracking your results. At Farrell's, we measure with InBody, an award-winning body composition analysis scale, which examines 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 extreme, but the results you’ll attain if you commit to our program are. You’ll be able to customize your workouts to your preferred level of intensity, while heading toward your personal goals. We also offer modifications for all of our exercises to ensure a fantastic 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 at the same time. We have members of all ages and fitness levels, each with different goals. And remember, all of our coaches and instructors were once students too.
This is exactly why we schedule our 10-Week Challenges—so everyone starts and ends together. We begin each 10-Week Challenge by illustrating the most fundamental fitness kickboxing and strength training exercises, building on those starting moves within your 10 weeks. It won’t take long before throwing combinations at the heavy bag will feel like second nature.
Nutrition is a core part of your transformation at Farrell's. That’s why we made our nutrition program easy to follow! We’ll personalize and educate you on simple practices that will keep you energized and headed in the right direction. From easy meal planning to thorough nutrition coaching, we will be there to give you the support you need to be successful.
We’re 100 percent certain that our program will help you reach your fitness goals. If you give us 10 weeks, you will get results.* When you complete the 10-Week Challenge, you will have results—or we’ll pay you $500 cash.

*Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping guarantees that you will have improvement in your physical fitness. If you stick to our 10-Week program as described and do not experience improvement in at least 70 percent of your fitness testing, we will give you all your money back. Since we cannot be with you all the time and can only instruct and encourage good eating habits, members must provide their food logs each week during the challenge to help us better coach you to reach great results. Your own results may vary.
