Client Stories

Since starting with OPEX Bristol, my whole outlook on training and my lifestyle have changed. Before starting with a personalised program and working one on one with a coach I was in the gym nearly every day exhausting myself. I always thought the more I did and the less I ate the better.

I started working with my coach at OPEX Bristol and I have never been fitter or stronger. Working one on one with a coach has allowed me to target weaknesses (physical and psychological) that I wouldn't always be able to work on in a class environment.

The biggest difference with OPEX Bristol to any other gym I have trained at is the ability of the coaches to change their coaching and programming style to suit each individual. There isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ mentality which I believe sets OPEX Bristol above different gyms and training styles.

At 52 an overweight, self-confessed workaholic my body’s immobility & inflexibility resulted in painful knee, lower back & hip joints. For years it had negatively impacted my lifestyle & family-time. I tried other fitness regimes in the past but had quickly become disillusioned, self-concious, demotivated and soon reverted to type and retreated to my known environment.

That was the case until I was introduced to gym co-owner and coach James Grogan. Each training session is created, tailored and delivered in a friendly, relaxed environment to improve my core strength and flexibility. James Grogan’s in-depth physiological and psychological knowledge combined with his profound enthusiasm and professionalism creates superb training sessions. He listens to my concerns and explains everything. I am now almost completely pain-free and able to participate in new and old sports. My attitude has changed and now have an active lifestyle and happy family life. So if you’re looking for a creative, enthusiastic, beneficial, supportive, knowledgeable, intelligent, friendly coach then look no further than James Grogan. I highly recommend him.

To have someone with this level of knowledge and commitment to your health and well-being is now something I couldn't be without. The time and care Danny puts into your progress and development is unlike anything in the mainstream fitness market. Combine this with the dedication to his own knowledge and everybody wins!

I started working with Danny at NHSC in 2017 to address some imbalances and prevent injury. Over time he has taken on responsibility all of my programming. As a personal trainer myself, I have sometimes de prioritised my own training when busy and I find working with a Coach keeps me on track with my own fitness and well being goals and progress.

Danny tries to address the root cause of any challenge - be it physical or emotional. Encouraging self reflection alongside performance markers to get the best sustainable change and long term result. As a client you always feel prioritised, my coach is responsive and accessible, providing excellent value. I would highly recommend him.
