Meet Our Transformation Team

Joe Ellis

Joe Ellis

General Manager

Hi, I am the General Manager at our Elite Edge Ankeny Gym. My passion for fitness was born when I was a guitar tech for bands. We would do workouts in the parking lot every day and I fell in love with it.

I have been working at Elite Edge for 8 years and been in the fitness industry for 12. My passion is helping people better themselves and achieve their goals. I couldn’t be happier to be working at Elite Edge Ankeny Gym as general manager.

Scott Stephenson

Scott Stephenson

Head Coach

My journey started with Elite Edge as a challenger. I successfully completed the 6 Week Challenge by losing 26 pounds. I knew from day one that I wanted to be a part of this family. I’m blessed with a passion for helping others reach their goals, as well as my own. Since being hired I’ve spent my free time trying to become a better coach, working my way up to head trainer at Ankeny.

Brady Wheelock

Coach

Hi, my name is Brady! I obtained my degree in Kinesiology & Health, B.X. Exercise Science. I am an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor. Following graduation, I started working at Elite Edge Gym in January of 2017 as a Group Fitness Instructor. I enjoy being a part of Elite Edge because I love being able to help others become healthier and happier through fitness.

Shayne Allan

Shayne Allan

Coach

My name is Shayne Allan. I am originally from South Africa where I lived for 19 years until I was offered a scholarship to play college golf for Wichita State University. Shortly after being at WSU for 2 years, I transferred to the University of Central Missouri where I continued to my college golf career. Whilst at UCM I completed my undergraduate degree in exercise science & kinesiology. I decided to further my knowledge and completed my master’s degree in the exercise science, kinesiology, and nutrition program.

My goal was to have an in-depth knowledge in human physiology that would allow me to be a step above many personal trainers, nutritionists and sport performance coaches. I proceeded to undertake the challenge of participating in a natural amateur bodybuilding competition, I was fortunate enough to have the knowledge to manipulate my body in such a way that I ended up winning and received my international pro elite status. My life long dream has always been to become a professional golfer. I focused my training towards golf specifics. After completing grad school, I turned pro and will be competing around the world periodically throughout the year.

I decided to join Elite Edge Transformation because I thoroughly enjoy helping all populations reach their desired goal by providing superior exercise prescriptions and nutritional coaching. I hope to meet and help everyone that is part of the Elite Edge community.

Below is some experience I have accumulated over the last 7 years:

  • Graduate assistant in Exercise Science, Kinesiology, and Nutrition
  • Assistant men’s golf coach at UCM
  • Strength & Conditioning for college athletes
  • Personal Training / Group fitness / Special Populations
  • Cardiac and Pulmonary rehabilitation
  • IPE Pro Card
  • Professional golfer

These Members Transformed Their Lives with Elite Edge. You Can be Next.

I just completed the 6 week challenge at elite edge and couldnt be more happy with the decision. Having the support and structure of a class environment to fall back on on the hard days is literally priceless, theres no way I could have achieved the results I have, let alone in the time frame I have, without the great staff and programming at elite edge. My classes were split between Scott and Mallory both of whom are excellent coaches dedicated to helping max our time at elite edge. I originally had no intention of staying on after the challenge but now I'm going to so that's as high of praise as anyone can really give. I'm so glad I made this choice and anyone else who does will be too.

Best experience hands down. I had an amazing coach who encouraged me daily and kept in touch with me to help with any questions I had during the challenge! Great people all around! I lost 21lbs during my 6 weeks and have decided I love it so much I joined the gym full time. My body is looking better everyday! My health is outstanding especially not having heartburn or headaches any longer. I highly recommend Elite Edge Cedar Rapids. You will get amazing results!

The workouts are great and are changed every day. Love the trainers. They really have become like family. I just signed up for 6 more months because I love this place. Everyone genuinely cares about you and your success. Mal actually took the time to give me a hand written note telling me how proud of me she was. That meant the world to me.

I finished the 6 week challenge and did lose 20 lbs. All the coaches were motivating, helpful and always available. It’s truly a non judgmental gym. The atmosphere is fun and uplifting. I am shocked my increased in strength and stamina. I loved the gym so much that I did sign up for a membership. I couldn’t image not starting everyday at Elite Edge Gym.UPDATE:I just finished a second challenge and while some of the coaches have changed, the atmosphere is the same! Fun and positive! I look forward to working out early in the morning at elite edge. The coaches are kind and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Elite Edge. Everyone is there to help ensure you succeed, even when you don’t sign up for a membership in the end.

I have done this challenge a few times now and I love the workouts. If you are someone who struggles to get to workouts in and gets bored with repetitive workouts, this is a great program. The training varies and provides full body workouts that improve strength in every area.The food program is simple and easy to follow. And it gets results. I would like to see it vary somewhat the way it used to be setup. I like the macro approach better that allows for greater flexibility and a broader menu. However, there are many people who do the program and cannot handle the extra time and effort it takes to follow a macro system, and end up eating outside of the menu. I would like to see it teach more long-term eating habits instead of growing to hate the limited items that are on the menu now.Overall it creates results and if you are looking for a jump start this is it. However, I would recommend having a plan of action for after the challenge that builds on the results.

I participated in the 6 week challenge to lose 20 lbs. I went into this thinking I was going to fail and not reach my goals. Through the entire 6 weeks the staff was incredibly helpful and supportive and really helped push me to do the best I can and help me when I was falling short. I finished with a 22.4 pound weight loss total and I was so happy with my results! Starting this, I never had any intentions on becoming a member after the challenge was done, but now that I’ve got to experience the welcoming and positive environment, I am so glad I decided to become a member!

I just successfully completed the 6week challenge at the Ankeny location and lost 23.6 pounds. The whole staff there is awesome and totally engaged with ALL challengers, I had the pleasure of working with two terrific coaches, Scott and Mallory, they gave individual advice based on what was needed and really made it easy. I'm not saying the challenge was easy, but their advice and guidance made it so enjoyable that I looked forward to going everyday. I believe that the experience has kick started a whole new life style that is full of energy. I highly recommend Elite Edge to anyone that is looking for an all inclusive great experience that will leave you greatly more than satisfied. Thanks again for everything Scott , Mallory, and the whole staff. See ya soon💪!Paul

I just completed the 6 week 7% body fat loss challenge from June 1-July 11. I started in the boot camp and then moved to the elite performance gym. All I can say is that the crew at Elite Edge knows what they are doing. Truly enjoyed working out with the Elite Performance Training group. Not only do the coaches care and have the knowledge, but the people you work out with know how to encourage and push each other!I followed the instructions, worked out hard, ate the right foods—meal planning was guided and my questions were answered. I was able to beat the challenge goal and I plan to keep going.My challenge was delayed from earlier this year due to Covid. I had a vacation planned during the challenge and I was able complete workouts from my vacation spot—my coaches checked in with me frequently and encouraged me to stay in the meal plan. I actually had some of my biggest improvements during that time, but it was because I was being followed up with and encouraged.Can’t wait to see what comes next!
