What drew you to OPEX Santa Barbara? Why were we different?

I have been a fitness lover for several years now. I enjoyed going to group classes, but I could never lose the weight I gained after going through menopause. After a biking accident, I was challenged to re-think my exercise program; could the high intensity workouts be disrupting my hormones and the reason I could not lose the extra weight? Enter OPEX. I soon learned that there is no one-size-fits-all exercise program that works for everyone, including me. OPEX developed a custom-tailored program with workouts that I can review online (with videos that show me how to do the exercises properly) and I track progress over time. I love that OPEX is very responsive when I have questions and comments about my workouts. I value monthly coaching calls with OPEX to review my progress and help me set new goals. This is a program with great, positive accountability. OPEX is not only teaching me how to exercise properly, they are also teaching me the role hormones play in my health and what macronutrients I need to achieve my goals. In other words, this is a company that takes a holistic approach to exercise.

How would you describe your experience with individualized program design and what it’s like to have your own coach?

I sometimes push myself too hard, putting my nervous system into stress. Knowing this, OPEX designed a program to help me learn how to exercise for my best health and I really enjoy my workouts, even though they are tough! My coach has a vested interested in me and is so encouraging. He pushes me, encourages me, and is my greatest cheerleader. I didn’t realize how much I needed that. I have gained so much strength and muscle since I started with OPEX!

Why would you recommend OPEX Santa Barbara?

OPEX is passionately committed to help their clients achieve health holistically. They have a proven system that will guarantee results if one is committed. OPEX is teaching me to be patient with the process and I am confident that I will achieve my goals.

Anything else you’d like to add?

Do you believe your health is your most prized asset? Are you willing to financially invest in that asset? If so, OPEX is a wise choice. I was once a skeptic, but now I am proud to be part of the OPEX tribe!
