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 received my certification as a Training For Warriors (TFW) Coach in 2016 and started coaching at Elite Edge that same year at the Ankeny TFW program. I moved over to coach at Elite Edge South Des Moines in 2017. Fitness has always been a big part of my life, and a passion since I was young. I love what I do and the reason I do it–to help others achieve their fitness goals! I’m always striving to learn new things and to be the best coach I can.

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!

Made me fall in love with working out again. Instructors are so friendly and helpful and made me feel comfortable right off that bat. I used to work out from home and i had a partner that would do it with me every night. When she moved, it was so hard to keep up the motivation. Elite Edge has helped tremendously with that. I’m so thankful I bit the bullet and joined this gym.

I tried a couple gyms before finding Elite Edge. They not only help you focus on your fitness, but your nutrition as well. They truly care about you and the goals you have set for yourself. Before signing up, they met with me for almost an hour going over all my goals and information. It really made me feel important and welcome. I would suggest this gym to anyone. Been with them 2 months and I’m already seeing results. Coach Lauren is awesome! She will work with you until you get it right and motivates you every workout. A huge thanks to her! Also a shout out to Hannah! She’s always there for you and is super helpful! Thank you guys!

I have never enjoyed going to the gym until I started going to Elite Edge South Side. I just completed my first 6 week challenge and lost 24 pounds by following the nutrition plan and working out at least 5 times a week. About halfway through, I started going on Saturdays as well! I feel better than I have in a LONG time and can't wait to start the next challenge. Huge thanks to Brady, Lauren and Hannah for supporting me every step of the way. Do not be afraid if you are completely out of shape and are scared to death of going to a “boot camp”. The trainers and coaches will give you alternate movements any time you need them. It’s a judgment free zone and every one wants to see you succeed! Once you get through that first week, you will be hooked!
