  • The Benefits of Working Out With a Friend

    The Benefits of Working Out With a Friend

    At Farrell’s, we are all about group fitness and having a blast with our fitfam. But did you know that there are several benefits of kickboxing and strength training with a friend? Working out with a friend allows you to hold your partner accountable, push each other along, and support one another along your fitness journeys. We know how hard it can be to make time to commit to yourself, and working out alone can make that commitment even more difficult. When you schedule your workout with a friend who is depending on you to show up, you tend to honor that commitment. Another added benefit to scheduling your workouts at the same time every day with your friend is that ....

    A Healthier Way To Grocery Shop

    If you’re like me-you are all about time saving & efficiency.

    Coffee and Health: The Research

    Coffee has been a huge staple in our lives, as well as a topic of discussion in the health and fitness community just as long. Research has pulled us in multiple directions-some positive, some negative. So, what’s the deal ? Is coffee good, or bad for you? It’s not that simple. According to a recent review article in the New England Journal of Medicine , the caffeine in coffee doesn’t increase your risk for heart disease or cancer . Research suggests that 3-5 cups of coffee daily has actually been associated consistently with a reduced risk of several diseases, even death.

    5 Full Body Stretches For Your Office There is no denying the fact that most of us should be stretching more.

    The Coaster Has Finally Reached the Station

    The Coaster Has Finally Reached the Station By Bobby Turnquist Farrell’s National Challenge Finalist My entire adult life has been a rollercoaster ride of weight. Even in high school, I was never happy with the way I looked. I was never what one would call “fat”, but I always carried a little extra. Thankfully, I was also blessed with a pretty decent athletic ability. This kept me active and is likely why I was not an obese teenager. I never had a grasp on good nutrition and have always eaten whatever I wanted. Surely, as I have discovered over the last year, this was going to catch up with me eventually… I graduated from High ....

    Farrell's Got Me Off The Hamster Wheel I Was Stuck On

    Farrell’s Got Me Off the Hamster Wheel I Was Stuck In By Joy LeTendre , Farrell’s 2020 National Challenge Finalist At the close of 2018, I felt like I was stuck in a rut.

After having our two beautiful girls, I never dropped the extra baby weight. I felt like a hamster stuck in its wheel, not making any changes to truly better my life. I had tried a couple Farrell’s classes in early fall 2018, and I will never forget my first kickboxing class. What ....

    Should I Be Concerned About Losing Weight Or Losing Fat?

    If you’re looking to join a new gym or fitness program in Eden Prairie, there’s a good chance that one of your main goals is to lose weight. But what does losing weight really involve?

    4 Tips For Returning To Your Healthy Habits At The Gym And At Home

    Picture this: You hit the snooze button, skip your morning workout at the gym in Eden Prairie, get the kids prepped for the day, and run to the office (or your work-from-home room), getting breakfast and a coffee at the drive-through. You slowly find yourself doing this more regularly, and eventually, it turns into your new morning routine. You think to yourself, “Monday, I’ll start again on Monday!” Ring a bell?
