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.

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

I reached out to Joe at Elite Edge 6-weeks ago, somewhat in desperation due to impacts my weight has had on my health. I was having severe acid reflux, fatigue, and every time I went to the doctor’s office, the scale read a higher number – which had become more and more concerning. When he told me I could loose 20-pounds, I thought it was a total scam but was willing to give anything a try.After completing the first challenge, I’m down 30 pounds and feel great. The acid reflux has all but disappeared, my posture is much improved, and am full of energy. Part of the program certainly can be credited to the change in diet, but the exercise routine has had an amazing impact also. Our coach, Malerie, is amazing – a great motivator – and pushed us to be our best. The gym has a full suite of equipment and the routines are different each day.It’s been a great, life changing experience. Planning to stay the course for the long term.

The 6 week challenge that I completed was a great experience. The trainers at the Ankeny location pushed you and were easy to talk to if you had any questions. During the 6 weeks you are supposed to follow a specific food intake and I felt that it was fairly simple to follow. After the first few weeks of meal prepping it became a routine to cook all the food. The morning workouts were nice to get them out of the way so I didn’t have to worry about distractions taking me away from getting a workout in. I would recommend looking into this.

Workouts are tough and challenging! Always mixing it up which truly helps to not fall into a rutt. The trainers are great. Super helpful and always checking in throughout our challenge. They are there for workout and nutritional advice. If you're ready to make a change in your life and habits, the 6wk Challenge is a great jumping off point!

I just finished my first 6 week challenge & I am so extremely happy with my results! I lost the weight & gained muscle like they promised that I would! I am finally at a weight & body fat percentage that is healthy for the first time in 23years! I went down a couple sizes in jeans & my abs look better than they did when I graduated high school 24years ago! The trainers are all amazing & so supportive! They encouraged me to push myself more than I could have done on my own! The workouts were different every day & there are many different times to go to which makes it so much easier for me to get to the gym with my busy “mom life” and work schedule.

Today I competed my 6 week challenge. It was one of the most mentally tough things I have done in my life but I can also say it was one of the best things I did to kick off my weight-loss journey. Mallory, Scott, and Joe are always a message away and are there to help you are they truly want to see you succeed. Do it for yourself. You wont regret it.

I participated in my second 6 week challenge and loved it! It made me work hard, focus on diet (which I am horrible at), and get excited about working out again. The coaches are all supportive and ready to offer tips for meeting your goals or modifying an exercise. During the workouts the coaches are consistently offering encouragement to the group and individuals. The program was great, I haven’t craved sugar in 2 weeks-my initial reason for signing up. The 20.8 lbs I lost wasn’t too bad either! If you’re looking to change to a more healthy lifestyle, the EE 6-week challenge is a GREAT way to start!

This gym is awesome! Whether you want to do one of their challenges or just join monthly. I have tried other gyms and they do not have as good of atmosphere or trainers as this one. It is very hands on and there are a bunch of different class times so you can always get your workout in. They even give you meal plans to follow so you are not guessing what to eat all the time! I just got done with my 1st 6 week challenge, lost 20lbs, and now I joined monthly. If you listen to what the trainers say and follow the instructions, FTDI, you will lose the weight and feel better than ever.

I just completed my 2nd 6 week challenge. I lost 23.4 lbs the first time and 22.6 lbs this time and couldn’t be happier with the results! Not only did I lose weight but I feel stronger and healthier. I loved my experience so much that I became an Elite Edge member and will continue my fitness journey here.

I completed the six week challenge and lost exactly 20 pounds. I thought I was only gonna lose about 10 to 15 pounds when signing up to this challenge. I’m so glad I did this challenge. It can be a little challenging, but my eating habits are very healthy now. I don’t wanna go back to how I use to eat. I didn’t drink a lot of water before and now I make sure I drink plenty of water during the day. The workouts are great is always something different. Instructors were very helpful and nice. They really showed that they cared about my success in losing the 20 pounds. I really recommend this challenge.
