Remote Coaching

What is Remote Coaching?

Remote Coaching is a personalized, progressive fitness program, that you can complete from anywhere while building a great relationship with your coach.

  • Consultation

    The first step is for us to meet in person. We want to get to know you first and foremost. Think of this as a first date with your coach.

  • Initial Assessment

    This is a 3 hour process. We explore your goals, movement analysis, physical assessment and work capacity testing.

  • Personalized workout

    You get a unique workout specifically for you based on your goals and your initial assessment.

  • Nutritional Guidance

    The food you put in your mouth is just as important as the exercise you do in the gym.

  • Lifestyle support

    Managing your lifestyle is the best way to make sure you get the best results from the effort you put into the gym.

The relationship you build with your coach is one of the most important things we can provide. We are there to help guide and support you towards your goals. We track and deliver all of our workouts with TrueCoach. TrueCoach is a cloud based app that that helps the coach and client communicate seamlessly.

We use TrueCoach to track our clients daily progress. It can also be used to track your daily workouts, nutrition, and lifestyle changes that we recommend. All of these recommendations are based on your initial assessment. We want to make sure we meet you where you’re at.

Our program strives to keep a high level of accountability. We want to make sure your coach is keeping track of how you’re feeling and what your progress looks like so that we can make day to day changes.

Track your Progress

We track exercise history and metrics, so both you and your coach can log results and visualize progress towards specific goals over time.

Real-Time Messaging

Clients can comment on specific workouts or send direct messages right from the TrueCoach app. All coach-to-client communication is kept in one place.

Nutritional Tracking

We assign high-level macro and mico goals and measure progress on a per-client basis over time. We track your clients' macronutrient intake and graph their progress in one place.

Email Notifications

You are automatically notified of upcoming workouts ahead of time. We also remind you when upcoming client workouts are due or if you miss a workout, so you're never left waiting.

Exercise Library

Our workouts always come with demonstration videos that show you how to do the exercise properly.

Workout Builder

We design and deliver personalized workouts using exercises and videos from our exercise library. These workouts are easy to understand neatly laid out.

What is remote coaching?

Remote or online coaching can be used interchangeably. All it means is that you have the freedom to train anywhere in the world whenever you’d like. We empower our clients by providing them personalized workouts and nutrition, based on their needs, regardless of their location.

How does remote coaching work?

At OPEX Ottawa the service we provide our members is similar to personal training except the difference is that this service is much more comprehensive. Instead of seeing a trainer 3 times a week for a 30-60 minute personal training sessions that can cost $60-$100 a session, we write out a personalized programming for each member to complete. We design our exercise program based on the results of a 3 hour comprehensive assessment that is done in person at our location. We make sure members stay accountable to their workouts by checking in through our fitness application called True Coach.

Will I ever get to see my trainer?

Yes! You will meet with us in the gym for your initial consultation where we will discuss your history, and your goals. We want to understand why they are important to you. After the consult, we will begin the 3 hour individual assessment in a 1 on 1 setting. We will complete a movement analysis and a physical assessment. Once the assessment is completed, we will deliver your personalized workout program specifically for you. This workout can be done from home or a local gym. We take all the equipment you have available into consideration. You will have access to a state of the art application called True Coach. Through True Coach you will be able to ask questions, provide feedback and upload videos of yourself doing the exercises. This way we can see you move and ensure the workouts make sense for YOU. On a monthly basis you will meet privately with your coach to re-assess progress and come up with strategies to continue to move you forward. You’re welcome to come meet with your coach in the gym anytime.

Can I try it out first?

Yes, we always begin with a 4 week trial to see how you like the service. The last thing we want is someone paying for a service they aren’t using. Like is expensive enough. We don’t need 1 more gym membership that isn’t being used. That’s why we love people who are serious about making changes to improve their health.

How do I get my workouts?

We use True Coach which is a state of the art coaching application to make communication seamless between coach and client. True Coach is easy to use and houses all of members data. Clients can opt to get an email sent to them every morning with their workout or simply log in to the app and see their training for that day. Each movement will have an exercise prescription next to it (reps, sets, rest, tempo, explanation if needed) and a video attached in case anyone ever wants a movement refresher. Clients are able to keep track of their scores, set new benchmark goals, and message or comment on workouts anytime.

What type of people do you work with?

We coach athletes who take their fitness seriously, whether you have a performance goal or simply to live a healthy balanced lifestyle.

What makes remote coaching any different from the boot camps or 6 week “get fit quick” programs I see advertised?

We use habit-based methodology to help members hit short AND long term success. Together, we lay down the foundation of what daily habits need to be put into place to ensure we are on the right path to success for our members. Our members are “long-term” members. These are people who love the process and want consistent, not instant, results. Our goal is to help build those consistent habits.

Are you guys personal trainers?

Nope, we are coaches. Personal Trainers train you for 60-90 minutes and are clocked out at the end of your session. Our coaches are not just here for your fitness because we see the most success from building healthy habits around the other 23 hours in your day… OUTSIDE of the gym!

Do you have just nutrition coaches?

Lucky for you your coach will combine your fitness, lifestyle and nutrition needs all wrapped up into one amazing service. So there is no need for separate coaches when you work with OPEX Ottawa.

I don't have access to a gym. Can we do bodyweight stuff only?

We do ask that our clients have access to a basic gym, while this may not look like your typical functional fitness gym – some equipment is necessary to reap the benefits within this system. However, if you are traveling or training at home our coaches can program for the equipment you have access to.

Why is there a coaching agreement?

Long lasting results do not happen overnight… Rome wasn’t built in a day. Our coaches take the time to invest in every client, and we want you to invest in us. By signing our agreement you are saying to your coach that you understand this is not a 6-Week Fix. You are committing to the process and are ready to make long-term changes to reach your goals!
