Farrell's Fitness Program in Des Moines and Waukee

Farrell's Extreme Bodyshaping has its roots in Taekwondo. It started in 2001 in the Beaverdale location and has since grown to over 70 locations across the United States. The primary focus of Farrell's Extreme Bodyshaping is kickboxing, strength training, nutrition and accountability.

Many of our class times conveniently line up with our Taekwondo classes, so parents can get a workout in while their kids participate in martial arts training!

Sammi T., Altoona, IA

“If you would have told me at day one testing that the next year I would be teaching kickboxing or training for a full marathon, I would never have believed you, but here we are, truly living.”


Tracy, Iowa City, IA

“Having the huge network of support that I had from this group inspired me to keep going even more. It is because of them that I kept up the "YES I CAN" mantra and pushed through, ultimately getting to the point where there is no evidence of cancer in my body.”
