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 Andover 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 4 great locations, Shoreview, Stillwater, 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!

When I joined FXB I was looking for weight loss and more balance in life. What I also got was nutritional guidance, accountability, and fun. I was invited to “Friends and Family week” and came to every class. I was hooked. My husband and I joined that Saturday for our first ten week session, which turned into a complete lifestyle change. The physical results and encouragement from others keeps me motivated. The instructor led classes that feel like personal training sessions are like nothing else. I was floored with my progress. In my first six months I actually got on and off the scale multiple times wondering, “No way. There’s no way. What was my starting weight again? Nuh uh!” I couldn’t believe that this was the new me. I lost 24 lbs and 18 inches in those first 21 weeks. Now I get to help others reach their goals. FXB changes lives and I love being part of that.

My fitness lifestyle transformation began when my husband and I joined Andover Farrell’s in April of 2013. Around a year and a half later, in September 2014, I began instructing. That following January I had the opportunity to become part of the management team as well, and also had the privilege to coach a few sessions.When I’m not at the gym I am usually busy with family and friends, homeschooling my three boys and running them around to their activities, or helping out at our co-ops and church. I love playing a part in helping people reach their full potential and achieve their goals.
I am a level one Instructor and evening manager.
About me:
I am a wife and mother of two kids, one Collie, and a cat. I started FXB in July 2013 and was hooked right away. I started Instructing in October 2014 and love that I am helping members reach there fitness goals. I am passionate about FXB because results are typical and I see that in every 10 week session. We have a great group of members that are very supportive and are always willing to help.
I have 3 adult children and 2 grandchildren. My wife Carmen started FXB in Andover for their 3rd class in Spring of 2013. I started in July of 2014 and started teaching in December later that year. I am a certified Level 1 Strength Instructor. I mostly teach at 6am, 4:30pm, or 930 on Saturday's. I work as a career Fire Captain (24 hr shifts) for the City of Coon Rapids Fire Dept. I have been in emergency services for over 30 years which include a flight paramedic.
I have always been active but have finally found something that I look forward to doing each and every day. I love helping motivate our members and watching their transformation and confidence over the 10 week program. My wife and I have made many friends and consider it much more than a gym due to the fact that everyone is here to assist and help each other in whatever they need. My interests include road biking, perennial gardening, sailing, kayaking and being outside.

Kraig's FXB Story- I was overweight as a kid. At 23 years old I lost 100 pounds and pursued a dream of becoming a professional wrestler; that is when K-train was born. I wrestled for 5 years until my dreams lead me in another direction of Bar/Restaurant Owner and Husband/ Father. Unfortunately, when I stopped wrestling I stopped working out. Eventually, I became what I was before, miserable, fat, and out of shape. I lost my business, my drive, and almost my family. I had to earn it all back. In 2012 I started going to a local gym to workout, eating pre-made boxed garbage, but it wasn't getting me the results I wanted. My boss at the time told me about this gym call FXB, I laughed...your lifting with rubber bands and cardio kickboxing? What a wuss I thought, that's not working out...so I thought! Fast forward a few months and really needing to be held accountable and hearing nothing but great things from my Andover peeps about the program, I decided to check it out. Not only did I join, I got my wife Angie to join and my 2 boys did the youth program. 10 weeks later I was receiving a check for $1000. I turned 40 that year and in the best shape of my life, my relationship with my family is the best its ever been, and now I'm an instructor!
FXB has changed my life for the best, I can never imagine that I would be working out 6 days a week, gaining muscle with "rubber bands" and kicking the crap out of a bag and absolutely loving it! It wasn't easy, it wasn't given to me...it was earned!!

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!

Level 2 ST and KB Instructor

 
As an athlete, fitness has always been important to me, but after two devastating injuries incurred while playing baseball (torn ACL and torn Achilles tendon), I had given up on my body because I felt as though my body was giving up on me. My body became weaker and weaker and I gained more and more weight. My self-esteem dropped the heavier I became.

My wife found FXB and convinced me to join after her 10-weeks concluded. I really enjoyed getting back into the gym and working hard. I started to enjoy the friendly competition with my friends that I quickly made at Farrell’s. Through the lower impact of the kickboxing workouts, I was able to do cardio again. The weight dropped off quickly and I regained my strength. I felt re-energized to regain a healthy lifestyle.

As an instructor, I love pushing others to reach levels they never thought were possible. I love motivating others and you will hear my energy levels rise as you continue to impress me with your work ethics on the mats. As co-head coach, I enjoy seeing the new 10-weekers come in, anticipating the transformation that is to come.
Instructor and Coach
Level 2 Strength Training Instructor
I am a financial analyst at a bond firm, which means I sit at a desk for 40 hours a week. Before Farrell's, I tried everything to lose weight. The gym, home workouts, personal trainers and all kinds of crazy diets. I joined Farrell's in April 2014 as another way to physically challenge myself and hopefully finally lose the weight. I am a wife and mother of 3, which means my time is very precious. I loved the 45 minute classes, and being able to get in and out without any wasted time was huge! I went to class every day and followed the nutrition program as best I could. At the end of the ten week session I had dropped the weight and gained muscle, confidence and a family. The thing I have enjoyed the most is the positivity and encouragement at Farrell's. I started instructing in Jan 2015, and I'm so honored to be apart of a group that is dedicated to improving lives. Each person that walks through the doors has different goals, and the owners, staff and members are dedicated to helping each other meet those goals. I have seen many people come and go, and when people return, they come back because they know the program works, and there will be no judgment in their journey.
