Meet Your Farrell’s Dubuque Family!

Get to know our great team of coaches, instructors, managers and owners!

I began my FXB journey because I wanted more.  I was training for my 2nd degree black belt and thought I could be stronger, better conditioned, challenged.  
I found a community.  A place where we cheer for each other.  We give our personal level 10 each day.  We don't workout alone.  We are a team.  FXB is my "Kelly" time.  A time and place I get to sweat, burn calories and be inspired by all the great people in the class.  I stay because you give me so much more than I can give myself.  I am grateful for FXB!
I decided to join FXB the spring before my wedding in hopes of being more fit and toned for my destination wedding. I also had some fellow coworkers who had been raving about the 10-week program they had just completed the previous session. In hearing their stories, I knew I had to try it! I entered my 10-week challenge as a 9:15er and loved every minute of it. Don't get me wrong--it was tough! I recall one particular day within my first 2 weeks of the program when I had pulled up to the building for my workout and considered leaving before I walked in--I was tired and sore. That morning was monumental in my FXB journey, as I made the decision to go inside and forge ahead. Since then, even on mornings when I would prefer to stay in bed, I remember the hard work I have put in at FXB and the awesome results I have seen!

I was approached about becoming an instructor at the end of my 10-week challenge. Although I was very intimidated at first, as I am actually a pretty shy person, I jumped at the chance and have loved EVERY minute of it! I love challenging everyone in my classes and pushing them further than they ever thought they could go. I love seeing the hard work everyone puts into their workouts at FXB and the amazing results they get from them!

I have now been instructing for about 4 years at FXB and have earned a name for myself as the "Push-up Queen." I love what I do and can't wait to see what the future holds within my fitness journey! Since FXB I have become a runner, which I never believed I could do. I have run a number of races with my most proud completion being Ragnar 2013, where 11 other ladies and myself ran a relay race from Madison to Chicago, with over 200 miles ran between our team. Fitness has truly become a passion of mine. I love the sense of accomplishment I feel after every workout. FXB rocks and I can't imagine where I would be without it!

After 20 years in the military, I went back to work at a job that did not make room for an exercise regimen, especially one with a group workout environment like I was used to in the service. It didn't take long before I realized that I had fallen off the fitness wagon!

A co-worker suggested I go with him to check out a new workout program in Dubuque called Farrell's Extreme Bodyshaping. From the very beginning, I was hooked on to the 3-tier fitness program of cardio kickboxing, band strength training and nutrition, plus it had the group workout environment that I had missed for so long! I jumped into my 10-week challenge feet first and there was no looking back! After a successful 10 weeks, I felt I wanted to do even more than just becoming a fit member to continue the Level 10 lifestyle.

I signed up and became both a cardio and strength training instructor to not only improve my own form and techniques, but also those that I instructed. Again, the Level 10 attitude continues into my training and instruction to ensure up and coming FXB members hit their Level 10 and goals as well!

Future goals include climbing the different tiers of instructing for FXB as well as possibly run/own my own FXB someday!
