FAQs for Farrell's Des Moines

When you ensure results like we do, there can be a lot of uncertainty about what to expect. We understand. Browse our FAQs below to find out what you can expect from our programs.

Farrell's Des Moines is a 10-week group fitness program for anyone seeking to enhance their current way of life. Classes are 45 minutes long, six days per week, switching 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 reach their goals.

That depends on the individual. While weight is an important piece 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 life is well-rounded!
We provide three flexible enrollment options and work with you to choose the one that matches your needs. We advise contacting your preferred location for more information. We offer a free week of classes to try the Farrell's program!
Each enrollment option is different based on your needs. For specifics on what each enrollment option includes, please email your local Farrell's.
All Farrell's locations use the industry-leading, heart-rate tracking, wearable Myzone. Members may purchase a Myzone belt for use in and outside of the gym. Myzone is an important part of the Farrell's program and is used to monitor heart rate during both our HIIT-style cardio kickboxing workouts and strength training classes. Instructors and coaches use Myzone to determine the pace of the class and ensure members are hitting their Level 10!
Want to learn what you’re really made of? Being knowledgeable about your body composition is the first process toward recording your results. At Farrell's, we measure with InBody, an award-winning body composition analysis scale, which breaks down fat, lean body mass, minerals, and body water. InBody verifies the results you’re acquiring on the mats onto paper, so you can see how much body fat you’re losing and how much lean muscle you’re gaining!
Our workouts aren’t outrageous, but the results you’ll attain if you commit to our program are. You’ll be able to tailor your workouts to your preferred level of intensity, while progressing toward your personal 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 time. We have members of all ages and fitness levels, each with different goals. And don’t forget, all of our coaches and instructors were previously students too.
This is exactly why we schedule our 10-Week Challenges—so everyone starts and ends at the same time. We introduce each 10-Week Challenge by demonstrating the most essential fitness kickboxing and strength training exercises, building on those foundational moves throughout your 10 weeks. It won’t be very long before throwing combinations at the heavy bag will feel natural.

We’ll personalize and teach you simple routines that will keep you excited and on track. From simple meal planning to complete nutrition coaching, we will be there to offer you the support you need to be a success.

*Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping guarantees that you will have progress in your physical fitness. If you follow our 10-Week program as described 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 all the time and can only educate you on and encourage proper eating habits, members must provide their food logs each week during the challenge to help us better coach you to achieve great results. Your personal results may vary.
