It's Kickboxing Day

Following her Farrell's Dream

Blog category:

We are excited to welcome Laura Jacobs as the new owner of our Farrell’s Sioux Falls, SD locations!

As existing owners, Darren and Julie, were looking to focus on other opportunities, they sought out someone that would continue their dedication, love, and support of their locations. Laura was the perfect fit!

Laura’s Story:

I live and eat fitness every day. No, I wasn’t always like this. Five years ago I was more depressed than I cared to admit. I had lost confidence in myself, I was heavier than I had ever been, and I had little to no energy. I had enough! I wanted something different, something better, something extraordinary for my son. So, on a whim I joined Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping in the fall of 2013 in Sioux Falls, SD. Little did I know my life would forever be changed!

From the first day I stepped on the mat I began to fall in love with the energy, motivation, and the wonderful people surrounding me. People within Farrell’s quickly became my family, my support group, and my biggest cheerleaders!

After my 10-week session, I was hooked. I felt good, my confidence was coming back, and I had energy to live an active lifestyle for my son! I wanted to help others live their Life at Level 10® and share my love for fitness with them, so I started coaching with the hopes of one day opening a Farrell’s of my own.

After coaching several sessions my desire to guide others to become a better, stronger, and healthier version of themselves lead me to instructing. In 2017, I was given the opportunity to manage the Farrell’s Sioux Falls – Kings Crossing location. Since my dream was to one day open a Farrell’s I figured this would be a great way to learn all of the behind the scenes work that goes into running the business.

Three values drive my life: faith, family, and fitness. Fitness, because I am a firm believer in taking care of yourself and your health, so that you can take care of those that you love. If you do not feel good physically and emotionally how can you be expected to care for others?

I am beyond thankful for the opportunity to own two Farrell’s locations. I am excited to motivate others and help guide people along their fitness journey as they transform, achieve their goals, and accomplish things they never dreamed possible (it truly is a journey)!

Please help us welcome and congratulate Laura on this amazing accomplishment of owning not one, but two Farrell’s locations! She is so excited to bring her love of Farrell’s to more people and will be holding a Grand Re-Opening event on December 15th!
