OLDSMAR — For most people, the happiest place on earth isn't usually associated with the gym, but for Julie Ruden, that's exactly how she describes Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping.
Several years ago, Julie and her husband Nicholas changed their lives when they joined Farrell's in Iowa. Not only did they lose weight, but they became healthier and happier.
Now they are bringing Farrell's to Florida with the first location to open in the state.
"We wanted other people to feel as good as we feel," Julie Ruden said.
Founded in 2001, Farrell's offers a comprehensive fitness program that combines cardio kickboxing, strength training, nutrition guidance and motivating coaches. Workout classes are held six days a week in a group setting, so everyone is focused on the same goals and supports each other.
Members begin their Farrell's transformation with a 10-Week Challenge. Using a variety of metrics to track progress, the member with the biggest transformation will win $1,000.
After 10 weeks, members can then become part of Farrell's Infinite Transformation (FIT) program with the opportunity to participate in additional challenges.
"It's a community," said Julie Ruden. "We want to help you reach goals and live your best life."
Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping is slated to open in October. It is at 4022 Tampa Road, Suites 4-5. For more information, call (813) 981-2125, or visit facebook.com/FXBOLDSMAR.
