My name is Keith, and I lead kickboxing and resistance training classes at FXB Columbus. Outside of the gym I'm a mechanical engineer, I'm always looking for the next project, and I'm a avid Spartan Race competitor. I take great pride in that last bit, as it's something I would have never accomplished before FXB. Instructing for me is all about having fun with the class and getting people to believe in themselves. I'm happiest when I see students pushing past their perceived limits and finding their new "Level 10" in class. I'm also a firm believer in the 10 week challenge, and I think it's appropriately named. The old saying is true, "If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you!"
My fitness journey with Farrell's began in January 2013 after moving to Columbus for an engineering desk job. Before moving I was in college, and I'd tried being healthy on my own. I had developed an "on-again / off-again" relationship with the gym, and settled into what I mistakenly thought were good eating habits. All those lifestyle choices carried over to the professional world, except for the bit where I was walking all over campus getting some amount of exercise.
A few months after we moved to Columbus I started to notice a few things... all that hanging out in the basement at night watching TV to unwind and eating whatever sounded good was starting to make its presence known on the bathroom scale as well as in the mirror. About that time, my wife heard about Farrell's on the radio and checked out the website. She signed up and told me about it later when it seemed like this would be a challenge for us to tackle together. The concept of accountability, solid nutritional guidance, and challenging workouts sounded like a step in the right direction, so I signed up as well.
That was a little more than three years ago at this point. The positive impact this place continues to have in our lives is hard to capture in words alone. We didn't just join a gym... we joined a family! Some of our closest friends in Columbus are the same people we yell with, sweat with, and encourage at FXB. If you see me in class, come up and introduce yourself. I promise you, the more you put into this program, the more you'll get in return!
By the end of my ten weeks, I was not only physically stronger, but also mentally stronger than I ever had been in my life! I have now been a FIT member at the gym for over a year and love it more than ever! Added bonus: my support team became my close friends, who then became my FXB family! I feel blessed to have found such a positive group of people, who encourage each other daily to become the best versions of ourselves!
As an instructor, I love motivating each class to push past what they think their bodies are capable of, while still having fun!
