Strength Training

Farrell's low-impact strength training classes will help you rebalance your body composition. You’ll make strong, lean muscles—working your whole body throughout the week. Our strength training classes switch between upper and lower body days to provide ample time for muscle groups to recover and build.

You don’t need expensive weight machines to get excellent results. Resistance bands are the main equipment used at Farrell's and give the same benefits of weights, but with reduced impact. Bands are highly effective for working muscles, and they make it easy to change resistance for all fitness capabilities. We provide bands in an assortment of resistances, so you can tailor the intensity of your workout by giving the bands more or less resistance.

You’ll also use medicine balls for our abdominal workouts on lower body day and even during interval recovery periods during fitness kickboxing.

Farrell's strength training instructors lead you through paced workouts that wear out the muscles using a blend of compound and isolated exercises. To keep your muscles guessing and to melt away those inches and build muscle, instructors adjust classes by alternating combinations of repetition and resistance.

Need adaptions? No problem! Our instructors can modify any exercise to meet your needs.

Benefits of Strength Training

Strength training is vital for reaching your goals. When you lose body fat and build lean muscle, your clothes fit better. Your metabolism improves and you burn more calories, even at rest. The physical tasks of everyday life get more effortless. But did you also know that strength training can help strengthen your bones? Or improve your cognitive abilities or chronic conditions? Strength training can even increase your balance and flexibility?

You get the picture – it’s significant.
