Level 2 Strength and Level 2 Kickboxing

I signed up for the Farrell's 10-Week Challenge in White Bear in January of 2016. It wasn't exactly my idea, but sometimes peer pressure can get you to a good place. I really thought I would finish my 10 weeks and that would satisfy my friends - after all, I already belonged to a gym. During orientation, one of the owners, Justin Gordon, talked about his fitness journey and said he wanted to stay fit as he grew older. As a guy closing in on 60, that got me thinking. I grew up with family and friends who had really declined as they got older, and while some didn't have a choice, some did. During those 10 weeks I started thinking more about choosing how I wanted to spend the rest of my life. Did I want to be out doing things or sitting home watching things?

I finished my 10 weeks (perfect attendance) but really struggled with nutrition. I signed up for another year, found a great workout partner (thanks Curt!) and started taking the nutrition part more seriously. I got better - sometimes I fell off the nutrition wagon and missed a class or two, but I got my act together and kept working out and paying more attention to my diet. One thing led to another and I started teaching at White Bear and got interested in owning a gym.

Well, be careful what you wish for because sometimes it happens. Somewhere along the line Dale and I talked about owning a Farrell's and a few months later, on October 1, 2017, at 4:30AM, we were unlocking the doors to Eden Prairie. I truly believe that working out with a class is the hardest I will ever push myself. We have met awesome members and are lucky to have outstanding instructors. Farrell's has built an amazing program and I feel lucky to be a part of it.
