I began personal / group training about 6 years ago when I wanted to help people and make a difference in the world by helping people. When I was able to make the connection between fitness and nutrition and the ability to bring that lifestyle information and passion to people, I put my head down and haven’t stopped changing lives since. My primary focus is weight loss , behavior change when it comes to nutrition.

“Helping people one step, one rep, one spoonful at a time.” I love to coach small groups and give people a 1:1 feel to training while having the group for motivation and environment. In my free time you can catch me on the baseball diamond, or relaxing with my fiancée on a beach somewhere. “Discipline is the driver to daily execution. Discipline defeats the infinite excuses that hold you back. There are no hacks. There are no shortcuts.”

Over the past seven years I’ve had the pleasure to work with a wide array of clients, varying in age from teens all the way to people in their 70s and with goals ranging from competitive sports performance to those who simply want to reclaim their health and the ability to age well. Even if you don’t have aspirations of becoming a powerlifter there are still too many numerous benefits to resistance training to pass up on it entirely. Eventually I hope you come to enjoy training as much as I do and I can’t help to guide you along the way in your process towards better health. I have a B.S in Human Physiology from the University of Iowa and a M.S Ed, Physical Education: Exercise Science from Northern Illinois. As well as USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sports Performance Coach and ACE Health Coach Certifications.

I am also one of the founding members of the University Of Iowa Powerlifting Club and Have Competed in the 165lb Class with personal best of Squat 485 lbs, Bench 272 Lbs, and a Deadlift of 600 Lbs.

My name is Jennifer Cecilia Najarro.I joined Elite as a 6 week challenger in 2020 then became a member after successfully completing the challenge. I fell in love with a new and improved lifestyle. As someone who knew nothing about exercise, healthy eating, weight loss, resistance training and cardio, I managed to enjoy it and absorb information! I went from being a client to being an Elite Edge Team member! I obtained my certification in Personal Training through the American Council on Exercise (ACE). After obtaining my certification I decided to obtain my Bachelor’s of Science in Health and Wellness and I am finishing that up soon. I want to be able to provide our community with the proper knowledge and information on how to make healthy behaviors and the necessary lifestyle change in their lives to help reach overall health goals. With this degree I plan to apply what I learn with you all and guide you through your journey. I’ve been where you are you and there is nothing better than talking from experience! I am excited to be a part of a great team and community.

I joined Elite Edge as a member in 2018 and my life was changed forever. I came in with no experience but immediately fell in love with the culture and community. At this point, I had obtained a bachelor’s degree in psychology but was still working low-level retail and not really enjoying my life. After joining Elite Edge, I was inspired to get another degree in dietetics through Iowa State, which I am currently finishing up, and will eventually continue on through their masters and internship program to complete the necessary requirements to become a registered dietitian. I got certified to personal train through NASM, and a Certified Corrective Exercise Specialist so that I could have endless opportunities to talk health with people in my community as I get my education. I am not yet sure what I will do as a dietitian, but I do know that I am incredibly fulfilled by what I am learning, and it excites me to my core to be able to apply this information to better my life as well as others!

Love this gym! I just successfully completed the 6 week challenge here and the trainers and other people who belong here couldn’t have been more supportive throughout the process! The 6 week diet helped me realign the way I think about food and the trainers continue to motivate me to want to get to the gym everyday! I just signed up for a full year after the 6 weeks and couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this amazing community!

Of course successfully competed the six week challenge! Losing over 21 pounds. The results you see in just a short period of time makes you want to stay on track and keep going hard! I’ve been a member at Elite Edge for a just a little over 5 years because it’s such an amazing place all around! Everything about this gym keeps me feeling empowered and wanting to come back day after day to train. You find yourself getting better and better at things you might not have been so great at before. The coaches, manager and owner are amazing people! These guys truly want the best for you so their always catering to each individuals goals and pushing/ encouraging you to get wherever you’re trying to be. If you’re reading this review I highly encourage you to come check us out, regardless if you’ve been in a gym or if it’s your first time… you’re seriously going to love the environment as well as the people!!!

the wife encouraged me to participate in a 6 week 20lbs weight loss challenge with her here and i decided it was definitely time to lose some lbs. the trainers here are more than capable of helping people make that goal with plenty of nutrition advice and awesome, highly motivated, workouts. everyone has something that works for them but for me it's these group workout environments with people above, at, and below my own fitness level that really keep me motivated. it gives you something to strive for, something to try and stay ahead of and less excuses to not try hard if someone else is in there giving it their all regardless of their current fitness level. it's really easy to push yourself during the workouts when you have others around you that are trying to push themselves and fun energetic trainers guiding the group throughout and you definitely get that here. another one of the best things (at least to me) about working out here is that if you can't do an exercise due to some injury/pains or even just not being ready for it yet, the trainers are always right there ready with some modification/alternate exercise that still allows you to work the same muscle groups safelyhighly recommend giving this place a shot if you haven't yet

I just completed the 6 week challenge at Elite Edge and successfully lost more than 20 pounds. This program provided guidance on nutrition, coaching for proper form with weight lifting and group support and encouragement. Anyone who is willing to put in the hard work will be successful at meeting their goals. I also liked the different class schedules because it gave me flexible options based on my availability. I would recommend this gym to anyone looking to lose weight, get in better shape, and/or learn how to build muscle.

I just completed the 6 Week Challenge and am so proud of myself for meeting the 20 lbs goal. I filled out an online form and 5 minutes later Cecilia was calling me to set up an appointment to come talk about the 6 Week Challenge. I signed up that same day and am so happy I made that decision. I needed help taking back my physical and mental heath after having two kids and I feel I couldn't have made this progress without the help of Elite Edge. Every week follows the same pattern; legs, cardio arms etc. but every single workout is different. The variety has kept me engaged and motivated. I never thought I'd look forward to getting out of bed five days a week at 4:20AM to make it to the 5AM class. It's the best way to start my day. Thank you to the trainers for helping me take back my "me" time.

I have experienced nothing, but positives from Elite Edge. They have some of the best trainers there are. They are very knowledgeable and truly care about helping you improve. I have one week left of the 6 week challenge and i am currently 22lbs down. You go in trying to better yourself and come out with great friends because they care about you and the journey you are on. Hands down the best gym you can go to.

I just finished a 6 week challenge and can tell you as someone that didn’t feel like he had 20 pounds to lose that you WILL lose 20 pounds if you commit, show up and as they say “follow the d@mn instructions”. After 6 weeks, following the meal plan and perfect attendance I’m down 24.6 pounds. But beyond all that, if you just want to feel better, have your clothes fit better, look better, get better sleep and much much more than I can’t recommend Elite Edge enough. Kevin Osterson will push you and make sure you reach your goals. A good dude that makes the sessions fun and safe. Grateful for his experience and guidance along the way, would not have been able to do it without him.

Did the 6 week challenge with elite edge and every step of the way the trainers were there helping me to keep on track. Gym was full of amazing people that exude a warm welcoming environment. Highly recommend this gym as I lost 18lbs in 7 weeks and would not have been able to do that on my own. Thanks elite edge crew!

If you’re ready to have sweat-ful fun, you will lose weight. But you have to be serious about it. You have to approach this exercise program and diet plan with this thought, "My way of approaching weight loss has not worked; I need help." Don't think you can cheat the program either. If you deviated from it, you will not succeed.What I liked about the six-week challenge was that I could do all the exercises right away, maybe not perfectly or as many reps as others, but I was able to do them immediately. And if I forgot what the exercise was, the instructors were more than willing to demonstrate it one more time.A little tip, you're not there to show how wonderful you are; you're there to get healthier. Take your time, do as many reps as you can. Sweat, hurt, then repeat. In six weeks you will walk away 20 pounds lighter.I highly recommend the Elite Edge Transformation Center to you.
