The Evolution of Personal Training
OPEX Gyms are the evolution of personal training. Clients enjoy training together under the eye of professional coaches – so their time is maximized. Gyms leverage technology to deliver completely individualized exercise, lifestyle and nutritional programs. Unlike other fitness models, we teach clients who want to open a gym franchise or become a personal trainer to take ownership of their fitness, and at a fraction of the cost.
With over 60+ locations in 6 countries, our gyms are as diverse as the people who own them, coach in them, and train in them. OPEX Gyms all share one common goal: to create the best experience in fitness, period.
From the way you assess the client to the program design, it just made sense. Coming from the group model, where everyone was doing the same thing, I always knew there was a better way. My client who’s 45 and wants to look good naked and move well doesn’t need to be doing 50 cleans for time.

OPEX Gyms succeed because they balance the needs of the owners, the coaches and the clients that form the communities.

Coaches are fulfilled by a system that allows them to continually develop as professionals and transform lives through optimal, evidence-based programming.
Owners can stand proudly in front of a brand that sustains their future and supports their community.
Everyone can live a larger life through personalized fitness.
Our gyms make an impact outside of their own walls and are influencers in their own local communities. This is why you often see OPEX Gyms hosting nutrition seminars, open days and healthy lifestyle workshops.
My coaches understand this will be a sustainable thing for them, so they’re able to have balance in their lives too, which is good. And I have the time to help them in areas where they feel inadequate and need to be more confident.
