    The roller coaster has reached the station..

    The Coaster Has Finally Reached the Station By Bobby Turnquist Farrell’s National Challenge Finalist My entire adult life has been a rollercoaster ride of weight. Even in high school, I was never happy with the way I looked. I was never what one would call “fat”, but I always carried a little extra. Thankfully, I was also blessed with a pretty decent athletic ability. This kept me active and is likely why I was not an obese teenager. I never had a grasp on good nutrition and have always eaten whatever I wanted. Surely, as I have discovered over the last year, this was going to catch up with me eventually… I graduated from High school weighing ....

    Are you stuck running in circles

    Farrell’s Got Me Off the Hamster Wheel I Was Stuck In By Joy LeTendre, Farrell’s 2020 National Challenge Finalist At the close of 2018, I felt like I was stuck in a rut. I had been working the same job for 18 years, my husband and I lived in a little townhome with our two little girls, and I kept losing and gaining back the same 20 pounds. After having our two beautiful girls, I never dropped the extra baby weight. I felt like a hamster stuck in its wheel, not making any changes to truly better my life. I had tried a couple Farrell’s classes in early fall 2018, and I will never forget my first kickboxing class. What surprised me most was that even though ....
