Dennis & I have been running a business in the fitness industry for more then 10 years now. Throughout that decade, the method we used to deliver fitness to our community has evolved, but our mission has always stayed the same: to help people achieve a fuller life through fitness. When we discovered OPEX Fitness several years back, we found that they not only shared our common mission, but had a much catchier way of saying it:
“Live an Inspired Life through Fitness.”
We soon learned that over the past 20 years, something called the OPEX method was developed through the coaching experience of OPEX Founder, James Fitzgerald. James has worked with thousands of clients in both personal training and group fitness environments, and eventually created his own approach to fitness by blending the positives of these two worlds. He has educated thousands of coaches, ourselves included, in the OPEX method, and they’re now sharing results, relationships, and fun with their clients around the world.
We as coaches and owners spent plenty of time personal training, and know it a can be a highly effective approach for a number of reasons. You get one-on-one attention, a workout that is designed just for you, and the individual accountability of a trainer. On the other hand, personal training can be upwards of $100 per hour and lacks flexibility. We found this just wasn’t sustainable for most people, and fitness has to be sustainable for it to to truly have an impact on your health and life.
We also spent many years in group fitness and had a lot of client success because the fun training environment, strong community and expert coaches are highly motivating, and the functional fitness exercises can be highly beneficial for the right person. However, a one-size-fits-all approach just can’t account for the unique training goals, movement quality, lifestyle and limitations of every individual.
We now take the positives and address the shortcomings of these traditional fitness models, to give you the best experience in fitness, period.
The OPEX method includes regular consultations and assessments, nutrition and lifestyle coaching, and metrics and results tracking. By delivering your daily workout through a state-of-the-art app, OPEX is also travel-friendly, and many of our coaches work with clients who travel regularly.
The OPEX method is the best of both worlds – a personalized approach to fitness that teaches you to take ownership of your health, with the support of a network of inspired clients and coaches around you. Your OPEX program doesn’t stop with your workout – our coaches maximize the other 23 hours in your day so your nutrition, lifestyle, training and mindset are all aligned with your goals.
Results, relationships and fun–you can have it all!
