Chico Baccam

Chico Baccam

General Manager

Fitness has been a part of my life since starting wrestling and hapkido at age eight. I began MMA training at age 22 and retired from fighting in 2010, after which I started coaching MMA. I started my journey with Elite Edge as a challenger in 2014, and joined as a coach in 2015 at the Waukee location. I received my RKC (Russian Kettlebell Certification) that same year and became ACE Certified in Group Training in 2017. My coaching background is in wrestling, kickboxing, and group fitness. I’ve always had a passion to help others achieve their goals and to inspire others with my journey and knowledge. You can catch me every day at the noon class kicking things into high gear! Namaste.

I began my journey back in 2015 as a participant in the 6 Week Challenge at Elite Edge Transformation Center in Ankeny. From that point, I began my path into powerlifting. Since then I have competed in four meets in two different weight classes, and am an active member of the Training For Warriors program at Elite Edge in Ankeny. As a coach, I want to be able to provide support, advice, coaching, and a great challenge for those ready and willing to put in the work to meet their goals. Outside of the gym, I love spending time with my family, cooking Filipino food, enjoying the outdoors, and am an avid book reader.

I just completed my 6 week challenge and lost a total of 22.1 pounds! The coaches and staff were amazing and I gained so much knowledge not only from work outs to do but also on nutrition. It was great to see where you started and ended with the test outs on how much stronger you have become in the six weeks! I decided to become a member and am super excited to see where this new journey takes me and that other people decide to come out and try it! Very friendly environment to everyone and fun of course! 10/10 would recommend 🙂

Not only did I loose 20.2 pounds, but I gained strength, confidence and the want to continue on a healthier lifestyle! The coaches and staff are there to push you every step of the way and the environment of the gym is so welcoming and encouraging!

I just completed the 6 week challenge where I lost 23 lbs! It was a great experience all the way around. The trainers and coaches provide you with a meal plan and guidelines and the group fitness classes were challenging and fun. I encourage anyone who is on the fence about trying the 6 week challenge to go for it. You’ll be surprised at how strong you’ll feel and what you are capable of. I learned that I really like the weight lifting and will continue to incorporate that into my fitness rather than just cardio.

I really liked the workouts and the environment of Elite Edge. The program was a great jumpstart for me and it kept me motivated. I do wish there were more options in the meal plan for vegetarians. But I lost 20 lbs in 6 weeks!

I would recommend Elite Edge to anyone that is looking for results. The workouts are easy to understand, the staff is willing to help you correct your form and motivate you to complete the reps. The instructions on what you can and cannot eat, for the 6-week challenge, are also very easy to follow. I haven't been to the gym in over five years and thought I could never get back in to it. The first week was the most physically intense week of my life. Everyone kept telling me that it would get easier and easier as time went on...I didn't believe them during that first week. Fast forward to today and I can do 30 more push-ups than I could on day one, I can do 20 more sit-outs than I could before and as of right now I am over 20 lbs down and have been since week five. I owe it to everyone at the gym for pushing me towards my goals. I owe it to my wife that meal prepped for me every Sunday. I owe it to my friend that showed up to every work out with me. Thank all of you that stood beside me and pushing me towards the finish line.

Elite Edge has been a great experience for me. The coaches and staff are wonderful to work with, and I look forward to my workouts! The group training I really enjoy, makes us feel like a team and that we are not doing this on our own. The up-beat energy is motivating and the workouts fly by! I like how every day is something new, and no work out is the same. I have learned a lot about myself, and what my potential is. I was so sore after the first week, but I pushed through and every time gets a little easier and I can push myself farther. It’s all thanks to Elite and their support, thank you!

This gym helps you lose weight and gain confidence in yourself. Trainers are helpful and motivational. The staff/trainers are friendly and helpful with any questions you might have about the exercises or class schedule. They also help with any questions you have about your diet. The group class atmosphere helps with being motivated during the workout. Attend this gym if you need motivation losing weight or if you to push your workouts to another level.

Great work outs! Coming here for six weeks makes you feel like family. Everyone is there for a good work out so they don't make you feel unwanted when first starting. The couches and great! They push you to be stronger everyday, if you ever have a question just ask them and they are happy to help. I was stuck with no motivaton to lose weight and by attending this challenge I feel better and look better! If you are looking for a friendly environment and a good workout place I recommend Elite Edge!!

I started this journey 12 weeks ago at a weight I was completely ashamed of and down right scared to go to a gym in fear of how people would judge me. My wife signed us up for a 6 week challenge and it truly has changed my life. I just finish my 2nd 6 week challenge and am rolling it into a 3rd. This isn’t about me though, it’s about how Elite Edge Johnston has changed my life. The day I walked in the door the friendly faces behind the counter and energetic coaches welcomed my and my 354.7 lb self in like I was family.

The coaches are amazing and will hold you accountable in a way that encourages you, Ive never had that before. In the past I was apart of gyms or classes where the coaches try to shame you into working out harder or losing the weight. Not Coach J (who’s no longer there but was apart of my journey), not Coach Wizer and definitely not Coach/Owner Sully. Owners Teddy and Toni are amazing too, they are there working out everyday with you encouraging you to push yourself! They see the work you put in everyday and how you are truly trying and they truly love it, and it shows.

I would truly recommend Elite Edge Johnston to anyone looking to lose weight. I promise you you will not be judged, you are allowed to go at your pace and you will have all the encouragement you will ever need everyday you walk in the doors!

Thank you Elite Edge Johnston, I look forward to another 6 weeks of hard work!!!!
