Eddie Mack


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.”

How long have you been with Elite?

  • I started as a coach with Elite in 2022!

When did fitness become an interest for you?

  • My passion for fitness began at a very early age my mom was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. From that day on I had a passion to help others move better and live healthier lives! I have also played baseball most of my life, I was fortunate enough to be able to play at Northwestern and then transferred to Iowa State after injuries ended my career early.

What do you do here and Elite and why do you love it?

  • I have a degree in life sciences and exercise science, I am also ACE group
    fitness certified and am going to get my personal training and nutrition

    certification through them as well. I absolutely love helping someone reach a
    goal they had trouble visioning or getting to. Knowing I’ve helped improve someone’s life is such a reward.

Tell us a little bit about you?

  • Nutrition, weightlifting and biomechanics are huge passions of mine but in my free time I also enjoy hiking and even playing video games occasionally.

I’ve got the BJJ bug after completing the beginner class. It’s also fun having our 2 youngest in the kids BJJ class. Overall having good challenges and feeling sore but in a positive way.

I recently completed the six week challenge, I decided to sign up for a year at Elite edge because I really like the workouts and the staff at the gym. They are very good at helping with form while lifting, and encouraging everyone to do there best during class. I would recommend this gym to anyone. Many doctors say that exercising regularly is a good thing to do because it makes you more healthy. Elite edge is certainly a place where you can go to exercise. Also now that I am in better shape from my time at the gym I feel more prepared to outrun any bears or mountain lions that may attack me while I am away from the house. Additionally if there is a zombie apocalypse I think that I will have a much better chance at outrunning some of my friends so I will not be eaten first. I would not have this new confidence or survival edge without the help of Elite edge gym and it's staff.

I just finished my 6 weeks and lost 21.9lbs🙌🏼 definitely an exciting motivating experience. Everyone was always super helpful and nice. Everyone made sure you were staying on track and pushed you to reach your goals! They give you a meal plan and a workout plan to help reach your goals. You do the 6 week challenge for yourself but not by yourself and that's what's great! The only thing stopping you is you. Loved my experience at Elite and excited to use all the healthy habits I picked up during the 6 weeks!

I did the 6 week challenge and lost over the needed 20lbs!!! I loved it here! The coaches were amazing and always willing to answer any questions I had! I was nervous about losing the weight at the beginning, but truly following the diet, ut does work! The protein powder doesn't taste to bad either! I used the reeses and ice cream sandwich flavored! I recommend doing the 6 week challenge for a good Jumpstart to losing weight. They have a good schedule on how each workout is done each day. Three strength training days and three cardio days! I still may be back to get the membership!

Just finished the six week challenge and lost over 20 pounds! I enjoyed the structure of the six week challenge and the flexibility of the classes. It breaks up some of the monotony of doing the same exercises on your own; and working out with others does motivate you. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. They will encourage you, but you do have to be self motivated to do something like the six week challenge. They offer classes throughout most of the day so it’s easy to find one that fits in your schedule. The workouts are in a group setting, but are self paced. The workouts are challenging and even more challenging the more you push yourself. It’s nice being part of something with other people who have a common purpose.

I just finished the 6 week challenge through Elite Edge. I successfully lost over 20 pounds. They truly are a transformation center. They give you all the stepping stones to make it through the challenge successfully. You still have to make the commitment to put your health first and actually make the changes but the trainers are so helpful in guiding you through the process. I enjoy every single workout. It’s always different and I actually look forward to going. The biggest thing is they want you to succeed not only for six weeks but they want to see you and help you achieve your long term goals which is why I signed up for a year membership without hesitation. I’ve gone to other gyms and tried so many other things and Elite Edge actually helped me make it happen this time!

Elite Edge is like no other gym! The classes are fun and yet you get an amazing workout in less than an hour. There’s lots of new workout combinations that you can’t do at just any gym and with the workouts always changing you never get bored and there’s so much muscle confusion it keeps your body guessing. Everyone is nice and helpful especially when you’re new. It’s the best part of my day! I started with the 6 wk challenge and transitioned to a membership and also got my husband to join!!

I just completed the 6 week transformation challenge at Elite Edge-Ankeny, and I succeeded in losing 20lbs! I haven’t done group fitness classes since I was in my twenties, and often stopped due to injuries. I have a very physical job, and knew that I needed to build strength if I want to have longevity in my career and was concerned about injury risk when started another group fitness class. Once meeting the staff at Elite Edge, it is apparent just how much they care about their clients health, and that they emphasize proper form and help correct your form or explain how to correct movement errors you don’t realize you are making until someone points them out to you. I am thrilled that I could workout and not hurt myself, my knees are SO thankful for the corrections they have made. My core feels stronger, which helps my overall strength at work and it has always been the “weak link” in the past. I’m excited to see where I will be in another 6 weeks!
