Saturday July 15, 2017, there was nervous optimism as 25 members from FXB Colorado Blvd prepared to tackle Tough Mudder 2017 at Copper Mountain Ski Resort.  For 24 of the members, this was their first Tough Mudder, a race that comes with the stigma of one of the toughest mud obstacle courses around. Like our experiences starting the first day of the FXB Ten Week Challenge, there was an anxious anticipation for the obstacles that lay ahead that day.  Each member began Farrell’s Extreme Bodyshaping on a journey of reaching goals, along the way conquering individual obstacles and fears.  Today, it would be 10+ miles, 20 obstacles , 2300 ft elevation gain, mud, freezing icy water, climbing walls, running, barbwire, and electric shock that stood in our way.  With the confidence, physical strength trainingda, boot camp workouts and teamwork developed through our time at FXB, each of these obstacles, maybe even “fears” were all met head on and crushed with each step and encouraging statement!  "One more step", "You can do this," "Don't quit," and “Great Job!” can still be heard as we take a look back at the pictures from that day.

I speak for many of this year’s Mudders when I say, If you had asked me five years ago if I would participate in a Tough Mudder, I would have said, "I can't do that."   Thanks to the Farrells program, the dedicated instructors, kickboxing and strength training workouts, and my FXB family, I don't say "I can't" anymore.  I say, “What’s Next?!”  In fact, many of this year’s members, myself included, will be conquering the full Tough Mudder 2018.   Bring it On.  #kickboxing, #life@level10 ,#fxbdenver.
