It's Lower Body Day

Strength Training

Farrell's low-impact strength training classes will help you rebalance your body composition. You’ll build strong, lean muscles—working your whole body throughout the week. Our strength training classes alternate between upper and lower body days to give enough time for muscle groups to recover and build.

You don’t need fancy weight machines to get good results. Resistance bands are the main equipment used at Farrell's and give the same benefits of weights, but with less impact. Bands are extremely effective for working muscles, and they make it easy to modify resistance for all fitness abilities. We provide bands in a range of resistances, so you can adjust the intensity of your workout by giving the bands more or less resistance.

For those seeking a little more variation, we also offer dumbbells. Another great way to build muscle during your instructor-led strength training classes, dumbbells can be used in place of resistance bands for particular exercises or in combination with resistance bands for a challenging workout, which our FIT members love!

You’ll also use medicine balls for our ab workouts on lower body day and even during interval recovery periods during fitness kickboxing.

Farrell's strength training instructors lead you through paced workouts that exhaust the muscles using a mix of compound and isolated exercises. To keep your muscles guessing and to melt away those inches and make muscle, instructors adjust classes by alternating combinations of repetition and resistance.

Need adjustments? No problem! Our instructors can modify any exercise to accommodate your needs.

Benefits of Strength Training

Strength training is critical for achieving your goals. When you lose body fat and create lean muscle, your clothes fit better. Your metabolism improves and you burn more calories, even at rest. The physical tasks of everyday life get simpler. But did you realize that strength training can help strengthen your bones? Or improve your cognitive abilities or chronic conditions? Strength training can even increase your balance and flexibility?

You get the picture – it’s essential.
