OMAHA, Neb., Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping, a 10-week results-based fitness program for participants of any age, lifestyle, gender or athletic ability, is pleased to announce it has awarded more than $1 million in prize money nationally to its fitness challenge winners. Farrell's has 51 locations in nine states, including 6 in the Omaha Metro and every location awards at least one $1,000 winner at the end of each 10-week session.
"We began this journey in September of 2001 with only 40 participants, which is when we awarded our first $1,000 prize for the best fitness transformation," says Lance Farrell, CEO of Farrell's. "Since then, nearly 57,000 people have signed up to improve their health with our program. We've awarded 963 participants with $1,000 each and five participants received $10,000 awards. We estimate we'll be giving away another $65,000 before 2013 ends."
"This is such a major milestone, and the members of our Omaha Metro locations are excited to be part of it," says Wayne Lewis, Bellevue, NE & LaVista, NE Farrell's franchise owner. "It's so gratifying to see firsthand how successful this program is for clients, and to continue making a difference in the lives of so many local residents."
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-third of U.S. adults are obese. Farrell, a long-time taekwondo competitor and teacher, specifically developed the program to combat obesity and assist people with developing healthy lifestyle habits. The program incorporates the fat burning, strengthening and endurance building aspects of competitive martial arts training into a course for people who are not interested in sparring or contact drills.
"The majority of our locations offer four sessions per year, and each session has a fitness challenge winner," says Farrell. "At the end of a session, our coaches determine the winner by comparing before and after photos to see physical transformation, as well as reviewing the improvement levels in fitness test statistics for each participant. Anyone who signs up for our program has a chance to be the next fitness challenge winner."
