Episode #4: From Hedge Funds to CEO of OPEX Fitness with Jim Crowell On this episode of FitBiz Talk we talk to the CEO of OPEX Fitness, Jim Crowell.&nbsp; Jim graduated from Penn State University with a double major in Finance and Economics.&nbsp; He went on to work for a Hedge Fund for a number of years while starting his fitness journey in Crossfit.&nbsp; Jim eventually got together with a partner and opened a couple of Crossfit gyms in the Pittsburgh area. Jim eventually sold those businesses to his partner and linked up with James Fitzgerald of OPT which has gone on to become OPEX Fitness. Jim started as a coach under James but immediately began tinkering with the business side of OPEX. One thing has led to another and Jim in now the CEO of the company.&nbsp;&nbsp;For those of you that don’t know about OPEX, they have focused on a niche known as personalized fitness.&nbsp; It is obvious that the market is favoring a more personalized approach. Coaching under or opening an OPEX location is not an easy task.&nbsp; There is a very robust coaching program that you must go through in order to be able to practice under the OPEX name.&nbsp; It doesn’t stop there though.&nbsp; There is also a very intense program that focuses on the business side for every individual.&nbsp; OPEX will provide these individuals with all the knowledge and tools necessary to create a sustainable and profitable business.&nbsp; That still doesn’t mean it’s easy because you have to put it all in practice from a coaching and business standpoint. &nbsp;&nbsp;If there is one thing that is obvious, it’s that when you come out of the training as a coach and a businessperson, you will have everything you will possibly need to succeed.&nbsp; OPEX has been structured to create an environment that will allow coaches to thrive. &nbsp;&nbsp;I hope you enjoyed the show.&nbsp; If you did, please leave us a review and subscribe to the show.

Prior to his career in the fitness sector, Jim worked as a commodities trader for an energy hedge fund and his business acumen (along with his coaching credentials and experience of running his own gyms) makes him uniquely placed to provide some timely and much-needed advice about adapting and growing your fitness business in these changing times.&nbsp;As you’ll hear, Jim favors a proactive and pragmatic approach. He points out that sitting on your hands and just hoping that things will get back to normal isn’t an option. As an eternal optimist, he reminds fitness professionals that there are still opportunities to be had in the fitness industry if they are willing to make the necessary changes. We talk about creating successful strategies to scale both online and bricks and mortar businesses and we explore some of the metrics you’ll need to keep a close eye on to make sure your business is growing each month.

Jim Crowell (OPEX) Jim Crowell is the CEO of OPEX. I first met Jim back in the OPT days at one the CCP certifications in Scottsdale - and now he’s friggin' running the place. We talk about how to think about competition in the fitness industry (you’re not just competing with other gyms offering similar services…), how to find the balance between creating systems and structure while still allowing for the creativity and craftsmanship of the coaching profession, and how to leverage tribalism in your target audience to create a marketing message that actually resonates.

137: “If we do our jobs as coaches, we should help you want to live a more inspired life.” - My interview with the CEO of OPEX Fitness, Jim Crowell In the 137th episode of Keep Moving Forward, I interview CEO of OPEX Fitness, Jim Crowell.
“If we do our jobs as coaches, we should help you want to live a more inspired life.” As both a coach and an athlete, Jim Crowell imbues within all those he encounters to live a more inspired life, and to simply want better for themselves. Continuously growing through the ranks in every organization he has ever been a part of, Jim’s story is proof that if you follow the process, if you work hard enough, and if your will is strong enough, you will undoubtedly succeed. I could have spoken to Jim for three more hours, and it still would not have been enough to capture everything he has done. But I am so grateful for the time I did have to speak with him. I hope you all enjoy my interview with Jim Crowell.
