Deliver Personalized Fitness With Lasting Results
THE COACHING CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
Master the proven OPEX methodology to deliver personalized fitness, behavior, and nutrition programs and set yourself apart as a professional coach. This guided video course facilitates self-directed study, while our cohorts enable rich and collaborative concept exploration. The OPEX Coaching Certificate Program (CCP) will provide deep, individual design program knowledge, implementation tools, and the practical application needed to drive long-term results for your clients.
WHY BECOME A CCP COACH?
An OPEX CCP Coach is a trusted fitness advisor and a partner in delivering results to clients. They are often leaders on the front lines, making a real difference in the lives of people in their community.
Ultimately, what makes OPEX CCP Coaches stand out is their ability to meet their clients where they are at regardless of age, training history, lifestyle, or goals, and design a comprehensive personalized fitness program.
Are you ready to become a fitness professional who can work with any client—no matter where they are in their fitness journey?
WE DEVELOP YOU IN THREE MAIN AREAS:
This is where you develop your coaching skills and gain a deep understanding of our principles of assessment, exercise program design, nutrition, and behavior.
You'll gain a much deeper understanding of yourself, how you connect to fitness, and where you can work on yourself in order to better coach your clients.
This is where you learn how to put your expertise into practice using the OPEX coaching methodology when coaching clients, no matter their goal and starting point.
You’ll learn what the OPEX Method looks like and the detailed steps that will make you successful at implementing it.
This is where you learn the skills needed to grow your coaching practice, acquire more clients, make more money, and change more lives through health and fitness coaching.
HOW DOES CCP WORK?
We take your coaching career and organize it into 3 modules—The Coach, The Client, and The Professional. Each module focuses on a specific aspect of what it takes to be a successful coach. You will learn how to take your programming expertise and combine it with a client's behavior, nutrition, and habits to help them develop a healthier lifestyle.
For your final project, you will demonstrate your newfound programming skills with 5 real-life clients in an exercise scored by James FitzGerald himself.
For the first 11 weeks you will attend 2-hour video calls with James FitzGerald, Carl Hardwick, and your cohort—a group of peers who you will study alongside. These calls provide the opportunity to ask questions, create a collaborative environment, and help you develop a deeper understanding of the course material.
Over the course of 16 weeks you will study with your cohort using over 300 course videos, 4 textbooks, interactive guides, and example client worksheets housed in our membership site. Our programming app, CoachRx, will help organize your final project.
Develop a deeper understanding of the OPEX Method through 11 weekly calls, monthly education calls led by James FitzGerald for all CCP coaches, an active forum, and the help of your CCP cohort. And, with thousands of coaches in 81 countries, you're joining a large network of fitness professionals.
