HOW DOES CCP WORK?

First Pillar: Theory

We take your coaching career and organize it into 3 modulesThe 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.

Second Pillar: Practical

For your final project, you will demonstrate your newfound programming skills with 5 real-life clients in an exercise scored by James FitzGerald himself.

Third Pillar: Mentorship

You will join your mentorship group—a group of peers who you will study alongside—on weekly two-hour video calls led by OPEX CEO and CCP Mentor, Carl Hardwick. These calls provide the opportunity to ask questions, create a collaborative environment, and help you develop a deeper understanding of the course material.

Fourth Pillar: Tools

You will study with your mentorship group 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.

Fifth Pillar: Community

Develop a deeper understanding of the OPEX Method through  calls, monthly education calls led by OPEX CEO Carl Hardwick for all CCP coaches, an active forum, and the help of your CCP mentorship group. And, with thousands of coaches in 81 countries, you're joining a large network of fitness professionals.
