General Manager

I have been a member of the Waukee Elite Edge team since 2014. I graduated from Grand View University with a B.A. in Psychology as well as a B.A. in Human Services. I am a former professional fighter, who competed in Mixed Martial Arts and Muay Thai Kickboxing, competing for companies such as Bellator and gaining wins over a UFC veteran. I enjoy helping clients reach their goals, both in and out of the gym. I believe that people are capable of anything they set their mind to, and I strive to inspire others to believe in themselves in the same way.

I grew up in the northeast corner of Iowa, and developed my love for health and fitness through my family. They have always been very active and competitive in athletics. After high school, I attended the University of Northern Iowa and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science while playing competitive rugby. I still enjoy rugby on the side, and also compete in Powerlifting with a 1,719 total. I love to help our clients be the best possible version of themselves!

My journey at Elite Edge began with a 6 Week Challenge in 2016, so I can relate and provide personal experience to our challengers. I handle things behind the scenes, so our trainers can help our members and challengers get the most out of their Elite Edge Transformation Center experience. From answering questions and putting out fires to paperwork and overall office administration, I help keep things running smoothly so members can get the most of their time with us! Next time you stop in, be sure to say hi!

I just finished the 6 week challenge and lost a little over 20 pounds. The first week was really hard, I hadn’t worked out in over a year and was really out of shape. By the end of the challenge I had to tighten up my tool belt at work and I moved up two notches on my regular belt. I am able to do sit-ups for the first time in years, I feel more comfortable going to the gym and I have had a more positive attitude at work and outside of work. Justin is such a great trainer and he really motivates everyone at the gym. The atmosphere is awesome too, there’s people will all types of skill level, and during my first week one of the experienced members paired up with me during one of my first cardio workouts to help me. The first week or two of going I was nervous every single time I walked into the gym, now I feel more comfortable going, and a lot of that has to do with the environment at the gym, it really is a no judgement zone unlike other gyms I’ve gone to. I am excited to start my second 6 week challenge!

I just finished the six week/20 pound challenge on January 18. Made it at 20.5 pounds.I hear some lunatics start at 4:00 a.m. When I rolled in, bleary eyed and coffee deprived at 6:00 a.m., that whole gym was primed like a precision machine and ready to rock.Stretching/warm up starts like clockwork on the hour with no delay or BS. I am not at my friendliest at 6:00 a.m., but ALL trainers/staff took initiative to learn my name, greet me, and ALWAYS have a positive attitude. The workouts are high quality, varied, and all trainers are quick to help/respond to questions/give guidance. No one is mailing it in here. I like that. Special shout out to Justin Shepherd for his excellent attitude and always upbeat personality.What really clinched it for me was the food guide. They've put together a super simple, super clear, and super easy to administer food plan. I wasn't counting calories, weighing stuff, or worrying incessantly about making the cut. You just follow the instructions, put in the time, and the scale does its part.

I just finished the 6 week 20 lb challenge and lost just over 21 lbs. The atmosphere of this gym is amazing, really inviting, really there to help you out, really work with you. If I had another 20 to lose I’d probably do it again. It’s hard work but so worth it. I enjoyed all the different workouts throughout the days of the week. 2 days were cardio, then arms, legs, glutes abs. Loved the feeling after working out. But make sure you always stretch! I want to thank all the staff for being welcoming and always helping me during my workouts.
