Cindi Nikituk and Kerrie Robbins will be opening the next Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping on September 21, 2013 in Shoreview, MN. This location will be the fourth location in the Twin Cities Metro. Kerrie & Cindi chose Shoreview because of the central location to many neighboring communities and the community’s focus on Health and Wellness. The Shoreview area is well known for the great access to trails, parks and lakes.
Cindi is wife, mother of four, a Registered Nurse and now the new co-owner of Farrell’s in Shoreview. She is very passionate about preventative health, physical fitness, and nutrition. She has decided to step away from the nursing unit and step into the fitness industry where she can have a positive influence over peoples lives with nutrition and exercise; the best means of preventative health care and medicine around.
Fitness has always been an important part of her life childhood through adult. Prior to joining Farrell’s she stayed in shape by working out at the gym, taking an aerobics class or training to run a half marathon. She joined Farrell’s in summer session of 2011, looking for a new challenge beyond her running and workout DVD’s. She fell in love with the program, she lost 13 pounds and 2 dress sizes. She had better results with this program than anything she had done so far. As a FIT member cardio endurance improved and muscle strength increased taking her from being “kind of “in shape to being “really” in shape. The transformation was amazing and now in the best shape of her life. From there, the passion for the program coupled with the friendships created on the mat, sparked an interest in becoming a franchise owner.
As a professional RN, she has almost 20 years of nursing experience in hospital ICU’s, homecare, and most recently a Cancer Center. Cindi believes in the phrase “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," and knows physical fitness can have an enormous impact on people’s lives. The opportunity to offer fitness and nutrition to clients as Farrell’s franchise owner along her nursing expertise will allow her to have a positive impact on the community and help people live strong, long, and healthy lives.
Kerrie is also a wife, mother of four and previously held a manager in the Clinical department at a Medical Device Company since 1999. She holds a degree in entrepreneurship and now able to apply that in her new role as co-owner of Farrell’s. She joined Farrell’s in the fall of 2012 because even though she was spending a lot of time at the gym, she was not seeing the results she was looking for. In just 10 weeks, she started to see the results that she wanted to see. She found the kickboxing classes challenged her in a way she had not been challenged before and relieved a lot of daily stress. Shortly after becoming a FIT member she started instructing and has continued to transform her life but also was able to contribute to other members transformations too.
Since Kerrie was a teenager, health and fitness has always been a big part of her life. Starting from youth sports then continuing as an adult and completing two marathons, several duathalons and biking the MS150, she has always remained active. Exercise and healthy eating play a large part of the way that she and her husband are raising their family. They are all active in sports or just playing outside to keep them moving. She teaches them nutrition in ways they can understand. Since her kids ages range from 6-11, she’s very passionate about childhood obesity. One of her goals in being a Farrell’s owner is to grow a strong youth program.
Whether Cindi and Kerrie are motivating each other during a workout or working on the business, they are having fun. With Cindi’s background in nursing and Kerrie’s business background they are a great match to be the next Farrell’s owners. They are so proud to bring Farrell’s to Shoreview. They are ready to help you to take your life to Level 10!
The FXB team in White Bear Minnesota is hosting a food drive to support a local backpack buddies program. The backpack buddies program helps local children, who may not have access to food other than what they receive at school, bring meals home for the weekend.
Farrell's and the Junior League of St. Paul are teaming togethr to support their shared passion for positively impacting people's lives through proper nutrition. The goal is to collect one month of food for over 150 local children. The food will be distributed to children whose primary meals are provided by the school. Wen Friday hits, children may not know when their next meal will be. The donated food will help comfort insecurities and bridge the food gap between Friday and Monday.
Food items are being collected at the Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping location in White Bear Township.
New locations will be opening soon in Colorado, Minnesota and Illinois. According to franchise founder, Lance Farrell, the growth is due to the remarkable success of the program in helping people get results.
"It's simple," claims Farrell. "When people get great results, they're excited to share and they send their friends our direction. I've attended most of our openings and have talked to hundreds, if not thousands, of people who are just getting started or have recently completed our 10 week program."
"When I ask people how they heard of us or what prompted them to enroll, by far the most common answer I hear is that a friend or family member had been through the program and had great results."
In Colorado, Chad Davis plans to open a new facility in Parker, Colorado, a suburb on the Southeastern edge of the Denver metropolitan area. The first 10 week fitness program is scheduled to begin on October 12th.
In Minnesota, two locations are preparing to open in the twin cities metro area. The Shoreview location on West Hwy 96 will open this fall and another location is planned for the Brooklyn Park area. Opening dates have not been finalized for either location.
Illinois will also see two new locations this fall. Chicago's second location will open soon in the Logan Square area under the direction of current franchise owner, Jason Hedden. Construction is on schedule and an opening date will be announced soon. In suburban Chicago, Rod McCrea will open his first location in Naperville on South Route 59 near Dominick's. The Naperville location will begin its first 10 week fitness challenge on October 5th.
Fitness students at our first Chicago area fitness location in the Lincoln Park neighborhood share their testimonials in this video. Two new Chicago area locations will open soon, one in Logan Square and the second in Naperville.
Check out the video and find out what YOU could accomplish with our 10 week fitness challenge!
These students have enjoyed the fun, never-boring, kickboxing workouts and the muscle they've developed from strength workouts that are so much more fun than spending an hour on a treadmill or lifting weights on their own.
Our Naperville location is under construction and expected to begin a 10 week fitness challenge on September 21st. The new Farrell's fitness facility is located near the intersection of Hwy 59 and 95th Street, a few doors down from Dominick's supermarket.
Franchise owner, Rod McCrea is very excited to have secured a location and is currently working with contractors to transform the space from its previous use as a dog wash shop into a place where people feel motivated to set and reach for their fitness goals.

Farrell's 7th Colorado fitness location will open this fall in Parker, Colorado. New franchise owner, Chad Davis, moved to the Denver area with his family several years ago because he enjoyed visiting Colorado and wanted to make Colorado his permanent home.
Chad discovered Farrell's 10 Week Fitness Program when life changes began to steal away his workout buddies and motivation. He understood the value of teamwork and accountability, and decided to give Farrell's a try during the spring of 2008.
Currently, there are Farrell's gyms in Colorado Springs, Denver, Centennial, Fort Collins and Boulder.
"We have great momentum in Colorado right now," franchise founder Lance Farrell says. "Colorado is a very fitness focused state, and people here are known for making their health and physical activity a priority. We hope to open several more locations in the Denver area soon. Gaining a significant presence, with more locations, is important in larger metropolitan areas like Denver."
