Developed by tae kwon do expert Lance Farrell, Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping sessions strive to carve physiques into firmer, svelter figures by combining compassionate coaching and intense workouts. Certified instructors lead FitStart sessions at locally owned franchises, rallying up to 30 participants per class. The program gears its regimen toward fitness beginners with low-impact moves that will not wear down joints and prompt sit-in protests from angry kneecaps. Throughout the courses, attendees aim kickboxing jabs at the open air or punching bags, engaging entire bodies in a heartbeat-boosting spree. Anaerobic bands stretch between limbs as clients perfect strength-training maneuvers, and a nutrition plan schedules six well-balanced meals a day. The included boxing gloves and hand wraps equip students for robust blows, and a training manual details techniques and intimidating one-liners for threatening punching bags with bad attitudes. At the end of their program, patrons can flaunt sleek yet fortified figures and may win the $1,000 prize that goes to a lucky graduate at each location.
