I'm a bit leary of Kosama's pushing the "buy a franchise" bit. And these owners seem very young and inexperienced. Bueller? Bueller?

I have done Farrells's and Kosama's getting good results from both but your results are tied to your effort. As for the debate about variety they both tend to repeat workouts. I am in my early fifties and found Kosama a little to high impact for my knees, I also prefer more kickboxing so will probably go back to Farrell's.

I have been doing Kosama for 12 weeks now. I did not do Farrell's, so I cannot speak to its success/etc. I can say that irregardless of what workout routine you choose, if you do not address you nutrition it will fail. Not a tough right and exercise and you will have results. Do what you enjoy, get healthier, be an example to your children to live healthy lives!
Please use real words "Irregardless" is not a word.

I think the only way to solve this is a good ol' fashioned throw down between kosamies and FXB members.... lol they are both great programs.

Yes it is. It's just not a non-standard one. Be nice.

From Meriam-Webster online - "Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose."

Kosama is a great workout but you have to have a good dieting plan to go with it.

Take a Kosama class...then watch P90X, they stole 85% of their workouts from those DVD's...even in the same order in some cases...ridiculous...I guarantee you check their qualifications and other than the Chiro, nobody else is qualified!
I am not a fan of either Kosama or Farrell's but I would much rather workout with a chiropractor who knows a ton about anatomy, physiology and how the body works (Kosama), than an accountant or a stay at home mom who took the class for 10 weeks and got a certificate from Farrell's to train (Farrell's)! Seriously if you go to Farrell's you are asking to get hurt! If you go to Kosama you are paying to much!!! In Cedar Rapids J&S Fitness Solutions and Max 10 are way better options. The trainers are actually certified and the prices are reasonable!!

**full disclosure...current Farrell's memeber..and PROUD of it**
Ok...I do find this thread mostly amusing. The whole FXBvKosama thing is getting really old. I do find it quite amusing that people pick on one FXB location to use as a blanket judgement for others. I also laugh at the fact that people who have done Kosama (and never Farrells) would "fight to the death" to defend themselves against a program that they only know what they hear from other "Kosamies" regarding how things went down with Kosama started. Who cares ?! Bottom line, our society is FAT!! Whatever people do to get moving, is great. Find something that works for you and GIVE IT 110%!! You will see results! Heres another quick fact. All of the above mentioned places,(FXB, Kosama, Goals, P90x, Crossfit) are businesses. The main objective in a business is to make money. People that say they are to "money driven" or "business oriented" are correct. Thats the point....or they don't make money. I also found it funny that one of the last posts by Kosama in Omaha mentioned that if people mentioned this thread they would get a discount. I there is no such thing as bad press huh guys ;) No Farrell's locations have closed in the Omaha Metro. One changed owners, but didn't close. Nice try. Encourage your friends, family and loved ones to get moving and be active. Find something they like to do, and stick with it.

I wouldn't waste my money. Either Kosama or FXB will get you results, but so will classes at the gym. If you need the moviation, then pay the money, otherwise use the money for a good gym, that offers group exercises classes. My gym offers group exercies classes, and if you pay extra they offer KB classes, total conditioning, boot camps etc.... Again it a money game, keep moving to keep seeing results

Hi I am not in a terrible shape. 5'4", 111 lbs. Pants size 26. However, my figure used to be good. Now after births of two kids, it's so so and I saw a bigger waist now. I am planning to lose only 5 lbs (mostly in waist area). Now I just started to walk 2 times each day (20 min each time) during work and do abs workout 20 min after work. I am wondering whether I should join a workout program (either Kosama or FXB) or whether it's just a waste of money. Please advise. Thank you.

Consistency is the key for any exercise program. I love how people think great I've joined a gym now the weight will drop off and fitness levels will increase. Hard work people, that is what is required over a long time frame.
The above comments about various programs all have merit and will achieve results provided people consistently train and keep the 'bad' foods to a minimum.

After burn is the new buzz word. That is getting the body to use energy long after the exercise has ceased. It's all about increasing the bodies metabolism.

High intensity interval training (circuits in gyms) do the job. I use TABATA training heaps.

Stay passionate about your exercise and gym programs and we won't be seeing each other at the medical care facility any time soon.

All I see on here are people saying FXB is better! NO! Kosama is better! How about the real answer. DIfferent programs are best for different people. As long as you're exercising great! We all could really do this on our own but some people need the extra motivation of a class. You could get P90X for a fraction of the cost and reuse it. Or you can go to Kosama or FXB. EIther way, as long as you're off the couch and moving it's great. Decrease poundage, decrease healthcare costs! Everyone wins!

Save your money, and purchase Insanity for a fraction of the price. You will get in top shape/ tone, and knock off a few pounds. Shaun T does an excellent job explaining the routines. Save time on travel because you can complete the program in your own home, with no weights or memberships to purchase. You'll be very pleased with the results.
agreed! i've been doing insanity for one month and on the cardio recovery week before month two so i decided to try the one free week of kosama and its a good workout but in insanity it just takes it another level and you dont have to go to special place just your home and a tv also you can blast your own music! insanity used is only about 50-80 depending on seller and its a 2 month program vs kosama which is $350.00 for 2 months but its not for everyone you have to be motivated and "dig deeper" also on the plus side you always have the dvds to keep your shape!

So I have done farrell's back when he first started and it was called Ultimate Bodyshaping Contest. He then tweeked it and made it his own then calling it Farrells Extreme bodyshaping. Now I am enrolled in Kosama. The workouts at Farrells are the same, Yes. That is great if you are a creature of habit like I am. The workout's I am doing at Kosama are all different. They are entirely way too fast paced and it's nothing more then the insanity workout from p90X. If I would have known that I would have stayed at Farrell's. I estimated doing over 400 squats in an hour. After the first 100 I couldnt do proper form if you would have paid me. Both workouts will invoke weight loss but I would rather have some knowledge and fun behind my journey and that's what Farrells offer. I wish kosama would give me back my money.

How many Kosama workouts should I being doing a week to lose weight?
FXB is not an original

For everyone bent on Kosama "copying" FXB, stop. FXB is not an original. There are others with a vaguely similar concept that get way better results. FXB may be a good option for getting people from the couch to working out, but its not for people who want "extreme" results. It's very routine and doesn't keep your muscles guessing what's coming next. Theyre good at getting youin the door and taking your money, but its easy to get bored quick. I could go on for ages, but long story short great as a start for those who are not active or fit, not a challenging or long term solution, and definitely not original....they have a lit of work to do.

to the last post.....
Have you done FXB.....and if you have, how long ago was it? They have changed their program in the last year for sure.....and I myself have gotten "extreme" results....even though my 10 week session was awhile ago. It really doesnt matter what "program" or workout you do, you will get out of it what you put into it.
