Experience OPEX Santa Barbara
Coach. Client. Community.
Every client has the full support a coach off the floor, but they have the guidance of a coach on the floor as they train with the rest of the gym community each day.
Instead of just telling you what it is, see it for yourself!
Is OPEX right for you?
Your coach provides you the roadmap to achieve your desired results, not force you into their vision. We believe that every individual is unique, and that your fitness program should be designed specifically for you. The beauty of working with OPEX Santa Barbara is that you decide what health and fitness results you want to create for yourself and your coach will get you there.
Support and guidance from a professional
Creating plans for yourself can feel overwhelming or impossible. We'll focus on the path so you can focus on the progress.
Balance fitness and nutrition with lifestyle
Every OPEX Santa Barbara Coach works closely with their clients to better understand what keeps them healthy, happy, and fulfilled, in and outside of the gym.
