Wade Anderson

MS, IFPA-CPT | Co-Owner, Fitness Professional

Lakeview Personal Trainer


Being competitive, active, and staying healthy has been Wade Anderson’s mantra since he was young. He has been an athlete all of his life, from wrestling at Iowa State University to competing in Mixed Martial Arts tournaments and triathlons later in life, to playing tennis most recently. Wade is certified as a Lakeview personal trainer, sports injury specialist, and in performance nutrition, and has a Masters of Science in Applied Exercise Physiology. Wade has been self-employed as a personal trainer for over a decade. He has partnered with Orange Shoe Personal Fitness because Orange Shoe’s philosophy is similar to his own: do everything better, from living to working and everything in between. When Wade is away from personal training, he enjoys spending time with his daughter and living life to its fullest, wherever that takes him.
