About Us

Results. Relationships. Fun.

OPEX North Scottsdale was established with the vision that fitness should produce RESULTS, RELATIONSHIPS, and FUN! We strive to create a community where:

  • You are valued for who you are.
  • You are treated as a person, not a number.
  • We are more comprehensive than personal training.
  • You get long-term, sustainable results.
  • You work one on one with your Professional Coach.
  • You are part of an authentic, inspiring and fun community.

At OPEX North Scottsdale we believe that fitness is the medium to help our clients live larger lives.  Whether that means having the energy to play with your kids after a day at work, hiking Camelback Mountain on the weekend, or just resisting entropy, our professional coaches can help!

Balancing life and fitness can be challenging but we believe that fitness can lead you to YOUR highest values.

A little about our owner:

I spent over 12 years working in the Sports Medicine Departments of Division I Universities including Villanova, Temple, and Princeton.  My job was to evaluate, treat, rehabilitate, and develop prevention programs for the athletes of the teams I was responsible for.  My entire career was spent writing individualized rehabilitation programs for athletes.

So when I decided to open my own CrossFit gym just outside of Philadelphia, PA in 2014, I couldn’t quite wrap my head around the “group training” mentality.  I struggled to write group class programming when I knew I couldn’t reach everyone. 

A few months later, I found OPEX.  I thought they could teach me how to better my group class programming.  WRONG!  I learned that there was another group that felt the same way I did.  There is a better way: Individualized Fitness!  So when the opportunity presented itself, I packed my bags and bought the onsite facility in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The OPEX model blends the best of personal training and group classes.  You get a workout tailored to you and your goals, with a supportive community to train in.  Because of the unique system OPEX North Scottsdale uses with our clients, we can reach EVERYONE, ensuring progress, both inside and outside of the gym.
