Before and After of Client at Farrell's Johnston
* Individual results may vary.

And here it is, folks--Proof of what 10 weeks of dedication can do.  After almost three years of inactivity and disappointment in how easily I became winded just climbing the stairs, I decided to give Farrell's Extreme Bodyshaping Johnston a try. Six day a week, I hauled my butt to the gym at 4:30 am for my 5am class. For 45 minutes, I kicked and punched a bag or pushed and pulled bands. I logged my meals using the nutritional coaching I received.  The visible results speak for themselves.  Inches gone everywhere (5' in the hips and 5' in waist alone), 17.2 pounds gone, 8.2% body fat gone.  My pre-baby clothes came back out of storage. And while I lost body fat, I gained so much more.  My cardio capacity increased, helping me drop nearly 2 minutes off of my mile time.  My strength increased, as I more than doubled my push=ups in one minute.  Most impressive to me is something you can't see--the changes in my heart. Pre-Farrell's, my resting heart rate was as high as 85 beats per minute.  It now hovers between 59-60 MP. My eating is cleaner. My skin has improved with all the water I drink daily.  I am a living, breathing testament to what dedication can do, to what Farrell's Extreme Bodyshaping can do.
