Our facility is named in tribute to a GREAT MAN and friend,  'BJ Iseminger' formerly of Altoona.  BJ tragically passed away in September, 2007 at the Lake of the Ozarks (he was 28yrs old).  Growing up, BJ participated in the Lil' Rams Wrestling Program at Southeast Polk and was a 4-time high school state wrestling qualifier for SE Polk as well, earning a place on the podium his senior year.  After high school, BJ entered the Army where he earned the nickname ICEman by those who were unable to correctly pronounce his last name. BJ later became a Des Moines firefighter and paramedic.

The nickname ICEman continued on, eventually ending up on the name tags of all his fire dept gear.  Our goal is to remember him each and every day through this tribute; ICE Performance Training Center.
