FIT AT FIFTY THANKS TO FARRELL'S



My fitness journey with Farrell’s began in the fall of 2014.  While I had always been somewhat active (volleyball, tennis, aerobics), I had become pretty sedentary after a neck injury and spinal fusion surgery in 2006.  At first I tried walking and light workouts on my own, but I was always afraid of re-injuring my neck.  I saw no results because I was afraid to push myself. My next step was a personal trainer who would personalize my workouts based on my limitations, but that was very expensive. I could only afford a couple of days each week. Again, there were no results. This time because I couldn’t afford it.

I kept hearing about Farrell’s from friends and co-workers.  I was too nervous to join by myself, so I convinced my good friend, Amy, to join with me. We completed our first ten weeks together and continue to attend our favorite class time , 4:30 pm at the C Street Location. I wouldn’t have joined without her and am so thankful for her!

When I started Farrell’s, I was nervous about not being able to do all of the exercises because of my neck and exercise limitations.  With the support of my coach (Stephanie), the manager at the time (Lisa), and wonderful instructors (you know who you are), I quickly learned how to modify certain high impact exercises to meet my needs. Did these modifications affect my results?  No way! In my first ten weeks, I lost 16 inches, over 4% body fat, and cut over a minute off my mile.  My pushups went from 15 in a minute to 56. My sit-ups went from 30 to 44.  My sit and reach stretch improved from 20 to 22.5 inches.  While I lost weight, I gained muscle, strength, flexibility, confidence, and lifelong friends.

My “Life at Level 10” may not be the same as everyone else’s, but I’m fit at 50 thanks to Farrell’s!
