Hannah Brammer

Hannah Brammer

Chief Energy Officer

After college I joined the rat race of corporate America and worked my way up to a management position in a large, national insurance and retirement provider, but had stopped taking care of my health. Realizing the stressful job was part of the problem, I took a step back and started at the new South Des Moines location as a 6 Week Challenger. I was determined to start getting healthy again! I came on board as the office admin around the same time and have been taking back my health day-by-day. I love working at Elite Edge and using my own personal story to help motivate others to meet their own personal health goals!

Lauren Springer

Coach

Fitness has always played a major role in my life starting at a very young age. I played competitive sports throughout high school and college and also spent 10 years in the military which required an extremely high level of physical readiness. I love to train and be pushed and challenged, both physically and mentally, as well as learn new training methodologies and techniques.  All of these things sparked my interest in the human body, training, nutrition and overall wellness and were the foundations for my life’s passion, coaching. I have multiple fitness certifications and coaching experience spanning over 20 years in various facets within the industry. 
 
I became part of the Elite Edge team in June 2019 as a coach. I absolutely love working here and helping our members on  their fitness journey and meeting their individual goals. This is my passion and I hope to continue to inspire people to be the best version of themselves through fitness for years to come!

I recommend Lauren as a trainer. If you do what you told with diet plan and exercise than there is no way you will not lose weight. I started at 248 and my last weigh in date was 12 weeks Im at 198 today. I have more energy today and better earing habits to continue. I no longer have to take insulin due to weight loss which is a blessing. This has changed my confidence and if it wasn't for Lauren to keep me pushing through the hard roads I don't know if I would be where I'm at on my own. I highly recommend this gym and anyone that gives there all with succeed. Never give up and follow the plan and you can do just like I did. If you want it bad enough it will happen.

I conquered the challenge! Such a rewarding feeling! I love Elite Edge Southside! The trainers, my classmates and the staff are so supportive and are passionate about getting you to your goals. The first week was the hardest but I soon became addicted to the workouts. I loved seeing people at all different fitness levels coming together to meet the same goal of being healthy. The variety of the workouts keeps it interesting and fun. I’ve since became a member and CANNOT wait to see how much more my body transforms! Thank you Elite Edge Southside!! If you’re reading this review your obviously thinking about taking this challenge and I say DO IT! You’ll be so happy that you did!

I just finished my 6 Week Challenge for weight loss, the goal was to lose 20 pounds. I started on my own in the weeks prior and really felt I needed some accountability and I saw a friend was starting the challenge, so I called and talked to Hannah. The first contact with Hannah was good, I walked into the gym and was immediately intimidated by the various jars of supplements on the wall, the weights and racks on the other walls, and the smell of working athletes. I listened about the program, asked questions, and decided to try something new. I am so overwhelmingly happy I stepped out of my comfort zone. Brady and Lauren were always ready to answer my questions, push me farther each workout and encourage me through my "slip-ups" rather cheating behaviors. I followed the instructions and today after the 6 weeks I am 22.9 pounds down and have created new habits!!!! I highly recommend!!!

I just finished my 6 week challenge at Elite Edge and am so happy! Can’t begin to explain how amazing this gym is. From the coaches to the people at the gym. Everything about it is just motivating and is inspiring. I am happy to say that I hit my 20lb goal with the help of all the coaches, staff, and family support . Although at time it wasn’t easy, it was still a goal that I was striving to reach. Now I signed up for a membership to knock some other goals down. Super excited to see what the future holds for myself at Elite Edge!

I joined Elite Edge back in July for their 6 week challenge, I absolutely love everything about this center! The trainers there help you push yourself for better and are always concerned about their trainees. If you have never worked out or don’t know anything about going to the gym, I recommend this transformation center! They help you with any questions you may have and they are right by your side no matter what! I struggled to get to losing my 20 lbs in the challenge but I was helped by my trainer and manager to lose the few extra pounds I had to lose in a week and I ended up losing 21 pounds!! You don’t just change physically, but you change mentally as well by always thinking positive. Anything is possible if you put your mind into it.

Taking the Elite Edge 6 Week Challenge has been one of the best moves I’ve made during this turbulent and challenging year.Like so many people do, I lost sight of maintaining a healthy diet and exercising over a 3 year period. I was miserable. Finally, I decided to do something about it and enrolled in the Elite Edge 6 week challenge that had always popped up in my Facebook feed. During the challenge I focused on eating clean by following the meal plan provided. I attended all the classes during the week along with some Saturdays (which is recommended, though not required). My trainer, Lauren Springer, was very patient and watched closely to ensure my form was correct and pushed me to my max.Having just completed the challenge on 8/22/20, I can honestly say that I feel rejuvenated. I am down 22 pounds as of my last weigh-in, my clothes now actually fit, and my energy level is through the roof. Happy to report that I will be continuing with Elite Edge and look forward to the next challenge they have planned.

My name is Allyson Contreras and i am so pleased and happy to say that i successfully completed the 6 week challenge by losing a bit over 21 pounds!!! It was such a great experience to be with the people that run this place. I never thought i'd be able to lose the weight that i did. But it is POSSIBLE. They give you a plan and if that doesn't work for you they will tweak it ad much as they have to to give you results. The workouts are so much fun. They show you exactly what every exercise will look like so you're never lost. And they always come around to offer support if you need pointers. I will forever recommend this place!!! I've never felt so welcomed in a facility where they even knew me by name. You won't regret your decision if you go with Elite Southside!! I loves it and i promise you will!

I have been fairly active during my adult life. I have always enjoyed a good challenge and mixing things up. Over the years I’ve done 5ks, 10ks, half marathons, marathons, and triathlons. I’ve enjoyed Cross Fit, Orange Theory and similar programs over the years. Those programs bought good workouts but limited results. Turning 50 brought weight changes. Covid 19 brought the shut down and working from home steps away from my pantry. I was lethargic and could feel my clothes tightening as I worked from home. Something needed to happen. The Elite Edge Six Week Challenge would often appear in my social media feeds. I decided it was time to do something.I enrolled in the Six Week Challenge. My first day was July 13th. I followed the simple meal plan. I hit the gym Monday through Friday with an occasional Saturday. The workouts were great. Coach Lauren Springer would always mix it up. She was great to make sure the movements where done correctly to get the optimum results. The weekly Monday morning weigh ins would see a few pounds in the first weeks and then the weight started coming off. My carb intake was adjusted in the final weeks to see more results. At my final weigh in I was down 21 lbs at 154.5 lbs. A weight I had not seen since 2012. I highly recommend Elite Edge Six Week Challenge to jump start your healthy lifestyle and long-term maintenance. I’m looking forward to continuing on at Elite Edge and onto the Back to School Challenge!
