FAQs for Farrell's Ankeny

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

Farrell's Ankeny is a 10-week group fitness program for anyone wanting to revamp their current way of life. Classes are 45 minutes long, six days per week, taking turns between cardio kickboxing and strength training. All members receive our 10-Week Challenge, nutrition coaching, meal plans, personal coaches, and a supportive and reassuring environment to achieve their goals.

That depends on the individual. While how much you weigh is an important factor in your health, focusing entirely 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 offer three flexible enrollment options and work with you to find the one that fits your needs. We advise getting in touch with your preferred location for more specifics. We offer a free week of classes to try the Farrell's program!
Each enrollment option differs based on your needs. For information on what each enrollment option includes, please email your local Farrell's.
All Farrell's locations utilize the industry-leading, heart-rate tracking, wearable Myzone. Members may get a Myzone belt to wear in and outside of the gym. Myzone is a crucial 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 choose the tempo of the class and ensure members are reaching their Level 10!
Want to figure out what you’re really made of? Being knowledgeable about your body composition is the first process toward tracking 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 receiving on the mats onto paper, so you can see how much body fat you’re getting rid of and how much lean muscle you’re building!
Our workouts aren’t over-the-top, but the results you’ll achieve if you follow our program are. You’ll be able to tailor your workouts to your ideal level of intensity, while heading toward your own goals. We also offer adjustments for all of our exercises to ensure a fantastic 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 point. We have members of all ages and fitness abilities, each with different goals. And keep in mind, 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 as a group. We start each 10-Week Challenge by demonstrating the most fundamental fitness kickboxing and strength training exercises, building on those foundational moves within your 10 weeks. It won’t take long before throwing combinations at the heavy bag will feel like second nature.
Eating the right foods is a key component of your transformation at Farrell's. That’s why we made our nutrition program easy to follow! We’ll customize and instruct you on simple routines that will keep you excited and on track. From simple meal planning to comprehensive nutrition coaching, we will be there to provide the support you need to be a success.
We’re 100 percent sure that our program will help you achieve your fitness goals. If you give us 10 weeks, you will get results.* When you complete the 10-Week Challenge, you will achieve results—or we’ll pay you $500 cash.

*Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping guarantees that you will see progress in your physical fitness. If you follow our 10-Week program as stated and do not see improvement in at least 70 percent of your fitness testing, we will give you a full refund. Since we cannot be with you 24/7 and can only instruct and encourage good eating routines, members must turn in their food logs weekly during the challenge to help us better coach you to experience great results. Your own results may vary.
