Eric Howser

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.

After graduation, I attended Simpson College to continue my academic and athletic career with a major in Biology focusing on Sports Science as well as Marketing. On the Simpson football team, I was a four year starter, twice earning all-conference honors.

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!

Chief Energy Officer

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!

These Members Transformed Their Lives with Elite Edge. You Can be Next.

Just completed my 6 week program. Achieved the goals as established by the program by simply following the plan. They use this term FTDI ... a lot. Join yourself to find out what it means and simple rule is to stick to it. The workouts are the funnest part of the whole experience. Just under an hour, simple, dynamic, and never boring. All together a great gym, excellent culture and positive attitude all across.

I just finished the 6 week transformation challenge. Lost 23 lbs in 6 weeks. Great program & workouts. Trainers are very friendly, knowledgeable and eager to help you meet goals and use proper form when lifting. I strongly recommend looking into the challenge if you are struggling to get started.

I just completed my first 6 Week Challenge and it was hands down the most rewarding experience. There were times I literally fell out of bed in the morning, I was that sore. It was a good sore though, it was muscles waking back up that I forgot I even had. I can’t rave enough about the trainers. They support you every step of the way. Their passion shines through everyday in that gym. The feeling I had getting in that scale and seeing 20lbs gone forever was more than rewarding!!! To celebrate the win, I signed up for a second 6 Week Challenge 😁😁. If your on the fence about doing this Challenge, I say get off the couch, take a chance on yourself and get in and talk to them. You won’t regret the life changing decision!!!!
