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 just completed my 6-week challenge. Elite Edge Transformation Center South Des Moines is a great place to jump start your exercise routine. Lauren is amazing. She is truly there to help people be the best version of themselves. She was able to adjust some exercises to meet my limitations, which really helped me to keep moving and to get stronger each week. The workouts are varied enough to keep it interesting and the atmosphere is fun and upbeat. The hour passes very quickly. I would recommend checking it out. Find a challenge that meets your lifestyle and see how amazed you can be by the things you CAN do.

I took Elite Edge’s 6-Week Challenge. I did it. I have always been active, but my fitness routine had lulled into leisurely walks around the block with my elderly dog and a few floor exercises. And, almost daily Happy Hours. I needed a good butt kicking! The Challenge was “simple:” follow the instructions and check-in on Facebook for accountability. Yikes! Each workout was tough and different than the day before. Thank you, Coach Lauren, for your patience and 1:1 instruction, for making sure each of us got the most out of every workout. Each day required discipline to stick to the plan and the eating schedule. Six weeks, 13 lbs., 7% body fat, and a new path forward – ALL WORTH IT!

I just finished my 6 week challenge and I have so much to say!! This place is incredible. To say I don’t have an athletic bone in my body is an understatement. I am not the best at anything physical, but even within 6 weeks I feel so much stronger, agile, and fit. They really make you feel like you can do anything here. (The secret is you truly can do anything) I went from 188lbs to 165.6lbs and I have so much confidence back. I have been sleeping better, my mood has been better, and I am so proud of myself for completing this. If I can do it anyone can, and everyone here makes it 100% possible. The staff care so much about you too! You come in and they treat you like an old friend they’ve known for years. I am always so excited to come in and get a good workout in. Thank you so much Elite edge!!!

I just completed the 6 week challenge and was successful in meeting the goal of 20 pound weight loss. I went from 181.5 lbs to 160.3 I feel very proud of myself! The coaches, Lauren, Trevor and Hannah were all very motivational and very helpful. Everyone you meet in the gym are very welcoming. At first I thought six weeks was a long time, but it went by so fast! I really liked all the different exercises and the different hours options. I highly recommends this program to anyone who is planning to change their eating habit and wanting to loose weight

I just completed the 6 week challenge and was successful in meeting the goal of a 20 pound weight loss. The coaches were all motivational and helpful with making sure I met my goals. The workouts varied and it did not feel like you were doing the same thing over and over. The toughest part for me was the nutrition plan but once I got it dialed in I had good results. I liked the numerous class options provided so there was never an excuse to miss a day of the program. I would highly recommend this program as a jump start to any fitness goals.

So I just finished my six week challenge today, ended up losing close to 25lbs in 6 weeks, so I’m pretty proud of my self, I have done the challenge twice already once in 2017 and then this year, so I have highly recommended the challenge to many family members and friends, some of them have already done it or are doing it right now! I would love to say that the gym and the coaches are AMAZING, they help you and guide you through all the workouts , so your able to meet your goal.. the elite edge gym south side is phenomenal

Personally, I had a phenomenal experience here! The people, the workouts, and the diet are all very easy to do as long as you just push through and do it. Lauren is a powerhouse of motivation and is truly inspiring. She’s goes above and beyond what is expected. Hannah who coordinates everything is also great. She is very detailed when talking about the expectations of the program and not only that but she attends the class with you sometimes. Elite Edge overall is an amazing program and I would recommend it to anyone! Especially someone who needs that extra push and accountability partners!

The staff here are truly amazing! The environment is second to none! Music choice some days are spot on and others are very interesting but thats part of it to keep the spirits up and to keep you motivated. Once you get past the first week it gets easier dont let that get to you the plan works its just a matter of following it. they're providing the tools necessary to make you successful so keep that in mind when you feel like you're not going to make it they will be right there to help you get through it and help you reach your goal.

Day 1 - Confused, Intimidated, self-conscious.. and thinking maybe it wasn't for me. By the end of the week, I knew I was going to commit. I've done other programs and the different workout routines every day make it hard to get bored. 6 weeks in.. major changes in the way I feel mentally and physically. Elite is my morning coffee now and I'd recommend it to anyone looking to commit to a lifestyle change. If not for weight loss.. do it for mental health!
