Local gyms give away $1,000 to members

At Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping, you expect to lose weight and tone up. A $1,000 reward, too? That's just icing on the cake.

The gym gives away $1,000 at each location — there's six in the Omaha metro — to the person with the most dramatic before and after pictures every 10 weeks.

“It's not about losing weight. It's not about getting bigger biceps. It's all about body transformation,” said Wayne Lewis who owns the Farrell's gyms in Bellevue and La Vista. “We want to make somebody fit and healthy.”

Members do cardio kickboxing three days a week and strength training three times a week. The gym also offers a nutrition program that includes meal planning.

The Nebraska locations have awarded nearly $200,000 since 2007, including $10,000 last year to La Vista gym member that won a nationwide contest.

“We found that most people, when they want to get in shape, right when they have that 'Aha!' moment, they join a gym, and over time their attendance seems to lack,” Lewis said. “Giving away $1,000 gives everyone a little extra motivation to keep coming to the gym.”

There are Farrell's locations in nine states. The next 10-week challenge starts January 11.
