  • Healthy Prep for the State Fair

    It’s that time of year again. Food on a stick. Deep-fried, delicious distractions from your health plans and fitness goals everywhere you turn. The Minnesota State Fair is known for two things: an incredibly fun time and adding an extra notch to your belt or a little stretch to your yoga pants. But staying true to fitness plans and workout goals doesn’t need to mean saying a definitive no to major events and outings that might get you off track. FXB instructors have some easy tactics and State Fair saves to help you get the most from the Fair’s food experience. Measuring Stick – Make Smarter Choices First things first: set a snack budget for the ....

    Train Like an Olympian—a Q&A with Casey Bloemke, owner of Farrell’s xTreme Bodyshaping in St. Paul, Eden Prairie, and North Loop

    Train Like an Olympian—a Q&A with Casey Bloemke, owner of Farrell’s xTreme Bodyshaping in St. Paul, Eden Prairie, and North Loop Many of us watched the Olympics saying, “Man, I wish I could be in that sort of shape.” What should people aim for when it comes to their fitness — what’s realistic so you can be in good shape…without the podium or the Wheaties box cover? This is so very simple. The only thing realistic is to compete against you from yesterday. Once we change our thought process away from trying to be someone else, we’re finally set free on a healthy path with our health and fitness. The right question is this: ....

  • Should I Be Concerned About Losing Weight Or Losing Fat?

    Should I Be Concerned About Losing Weight Or Losing Fat?

    If you’re looking to join a new gym or fitness program in Andover, there’s a good chance that one of your main goals is to lose weight. But what does losing weight really involve? Is there a differentiation between losing weight and losing fat? Weight loss is different from fat loss. It’s important to know the difference to help you achieve your goals. And keep them. Weight Loss Your body’s total weight includes bones, organs, muscles, fat and water. Losing weight could result in a smaller number on the scale, but weight loss doesn’t automatically mean the equivalent of health. If you’re losing weight from your muscles, you won’t achieve the ....

  • 4 Tips For Returning To Your Healthy Habits At The Gym And At Home

    4 Tips For Returning To Your Healthy Habits At The Gym And At Home

    Picture this: You hit the snooze button, skip your morning workout at the gym in Andover, get the kids prepped for the day, and run to the office (or your work-from-home room), getting breakfast and a coffee at the drive-through. You slowly find yourself doing this more regularly, and eventually, it turns into your new morning routine. You think to yourself, “Monday, I’ll start again on Monday!” Ring a bell? If you’ve been through this before, you’re not alone! And don’t be so critical of yourself up either – it’s happened to all of us. If you’re set to get back in the gym and improve your health, you’ve arrived at the ideal ....

    How To Remain Healthy While Staying Home

    With changes going on in the world today, most of us are using more time in our houses. It can seem tricky to keep up with a positive lifestyle when your gym in Andover is closed. You could have found yourself becoming the teacher, home cook, and parent in your house. Or you are working from home for the time being and struggling to set up some structure in your day.

    Becoming The Man I Knew I Could Be

    Doug Wespiser is a Farrell’s member at Farrell’s White Bear, Minnesota. Doug’s story is truly one of hard work and dedication. Keep reading to hear, in Doug’s words, how he became the father, husband, and man he always wanted to be! Chapter 41: How Did I Get Here? Growing up, I was full of ambitions and dreams. “Who do I want to be? What do I want to do when I grow up?” As a husky boy in my teens, I planned to be an avid hunter, camper, and fisherman, exploring remote locations and surviving off the land. Today, at 41 years of age and nearly 300 pounds, I think to myself, “How did I get here? How could I be so far away from what I had envisioned ....

    How to Work on Self-Care During Unpredictable Times

    There’s more to your well-being than just working out and eating healthy meals. Taking a thorough idea of your health— nourishing your mind, body, and soul—is vital for your overall health. We like to describe this as self-care. Here are a few of our favorite ways to practice self-care. Stay Connected We may be following social distancing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t connect with others! Book a digital coffee break or happy hour with your friends or family. Keep it cheerful and tell each other one good thing that happened to you recently. Brainstorm plans for when you can meet again and how comforting it will be to give them a big, warm hug. Together ....

    Why Couldn't That Be Me?

    Diane Beckler is a 2019 National Challenge finalist and member at Farrell’s Oakdale Coralville, Iowa. Diane’s story is one of true perseverance and dedication, and we are honored to have her as part of our Farrell’s family. Congratulations, Diane! Why Couldn’t That Be Me? When I was younger, I loved participating in sports. It was my social outlet, and I loved to compete. Despite my diet of Wendy’s double bacon deluxe combos meals, frozen pizzas, mac n’ cheese, hot dogs, nachos, powdered donuts, and pop, I managed to keep the excess weight off – until my sophomore year of high school. I’d look at my teammates, with their parents cheering ....
