FAQs for Farrell's West Des Moines

When you promise results like we do, there can be a lot of anxiety about what to expect. We acknowledge that. Read our FAQs below to find out what you can expect from our programs.

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

That depends on each individual person. While how much you weigh is an important component of your health, focusing solely on weight loss will only generate short-term success. We center on body fat loss, not just weight loss, to ensure your journey to a healthier way of living is well-rounded!
We offer three flexible enrollment options and work with you to choose the one that meets your needs. We recommend reaching out to your preferred location for more information. We offer a free week of classes to try the Farrell's program!
Each enrollment option varies based on your needs. For details on what each enrollment option includes, please call 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 integral part of the Farrell's program and is used to watch 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 reaching their Level 10!
Want to figure out what you’re really made of? Understanding your body composition is the first step to recording your results. At Farrell's, we utilize InBody, an award-winning body composition analysis scale, which breaks down fat, lean body mass, minerals, and body water. InBody confirms the results you’re getting on the mats onto paper, so you can see how much body fat you’re getting rid of and how much lean muscle you’re creating!
Our workouts aren’t over-the-top, but the results you’ll see if you stick to our program are. You’ll be able to modify your workouts to your chosen level of intensity, while progressing toward your own goals. We also offer versions of all of our exercises to ensure a great workout.

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

Of course not! When we launch our 10-Week Challenge, everyone starts at the same point. We have members of all ages and fitness skills, each with their own goals. And don’t forget, 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 demonstrating the most fundamental fitness kickboxing and strength training exercises, building on those primary moves throughout your 10 weeks. It won’t be too 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 uncomplicated! We’ll personalize and instruct you on simple practices that will keep you energized and on track. From easy meal planning to comprehensive 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 accomplish your fitness goals. If you give us 10 weeks, you will experience results.* When you are done with the 10-Week Challenge, you will have results—or we’ll pay you $500 cash.

*Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping guarantees that you will see improvement in your physical fitness. If you follow our 10-Week program as stated and do not experience improvement in at least 70 percent of your fitness testing, we will give you a full refund. Since we cannot be with you 24/7 and can only teach and encourage healthy eating practices, members must turn in their food logs each week during the challenge to aid us in better coaching you to experience great results. Your personal results may vary.
