FAQs for Farrell's West Des Moines

When you promise 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 West Des Moines is a 10-week group fitness program for anyone looking to enhance their current way of living. 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 inspiring environment to achieve their goals.

That depends on the individual. While weight is an important piece of your health, focusing solely on weight loss will only produce short-term success. We target body fat loss, not just weight loss, to ensure your journey to a healthier way of living is well-rounded!
We offer three flexible enrollment options and work with you to find the one that fits your needs. We suggest contacting your preferred location for more details. We offer a free week of classes to try the Farrell's program!
Each enrollment option varies based on your needs. For specifics on what each enrollment option includes, please contact your local Farrell's.
All Farrell's locations offer the industry-leading, heart-rate tracking, wearable Myzone. Members may buy a Myzone belt to wear in and outside of the gym. Myzone is an important part of the Farrell's program and is used to keep track of heart rate during both our HIIT-style cardio kickboxing workouts and strength training classes. Instructors and coaches use Myzone to set the pace of the class and ensure members are hitting their Level 10!
Want to figure out what you’re really made of? Being knowledgeable about your body composition is the first move toward keeping track of your results. At Farrell's, we use InBody, an award-winning body composition analysis scale, which breaks down fat, lean body mass, minerals, and body water. InBody confirms the results you’re receiving 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 extreme, but the results you’ll see if you stick to our program are. You’ll be able to customize your workouts to your ideal level of intensity, while advancing toward your own goals. We also offer modifications 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 kick off our 10-Week Challenge, everyone starts at the same point. We have members of all ages and fitness skills, each with distinctive goals. And keep in mind, all of our coaches and instructors were formerly students too.
This is exactly why we schedule our 10-Week Challenges—so everyone starts and ends at the same time. We start each 10-Week Challenge by illustrating the most fundamental fitness kickboxing and strength training exercises, building on those foundational moves within your 10 weeks. It won’t be too long before throwing combinations at the heavy bag will feel natural.
Eating the right foods is a core element of your transformation at Farrell's. That’s why we made our nutrition program straightforward! We’ll design and teach you simple habits that will keep you energized and on track. From simple meal planning to thorough nutrition coaching, we will be there to provide the support you need to be successful.

*Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping guarantees that you will experience progress in your physical fitness. If you stick to our 10-Week program as described and do not have improvement in at least 70 percent of your fitness testing, we will refund all your money. Since we cannot be with you all the time and can only educate you on and encourage proper eating practices, members must provide their food logs every week during the challenge to assist us in better coaching you to reach great results. Your own results may vary.
