our mantra is...


To develop as a coach and a person, you must constantly learn, evolve, and adapt. As CCP Coaches, we know the power of education and collaboration, and the inspiration we can draw from our fellow coaches.

It’s already that time of the year again, when our CCP community will come together for 2 days of in-person connection and learning. Come share your common passion for fitness and health as a fundamental part of what it means to be human, and use your energy to invigorate and inspire your fellow coaches at our second annual Coaches Summit!

The Lifecycle Revised: Fitness From Cradle to Grave

As a CCP coach you are well equipped to coach adult populations throughout their lifecycle. But if we really want to build fitness for life, then we miss out on a huge opportunity to establish healthy behaviors if we don’t start at birth. In this special presentation, James FitzGerald stretches out the OPEX fitness lifecycle you are so familiar with to include children at all developmental stages. Cradle-to-grave fitness is the future, and James invites you to be a part of it’s inception at the 2022 Coaches Summit.
