I’m thrilled to be a part of the OPEX family. I’m the leanest and strongest I have ever been. Since joining I’ve hit PB’s on many of my lifts, increased my meet total, jumped up the Open leaderboard by 200 spots,  and have been the healthier than ever. Having personal coaching has helped me develop mental fortitude as well as physical strength. Thank you guys! “

“By the way, I’ve become far more confident and knowledgeable now thanks to you and everyone at OPEX. I knew this investment was worth it.

Again, thank you very much for all your help and support thus far!”

Sport and fitness has been an important part of my life. I truly believe the skills you learn and develop in this arena are transferable to real life. When I achieve things I once thought impossible that gives me confidence to tackle life outside the gym.

OPEX and Coach Michael Bann has been an integral part of my physical, personal and professional growth. I believe people arrive just when you need them, this just so happens to be the OPEX community.
