James was displeased with the level of education within the fitness community and hoped to "raise the bar" for the standard level of education for strength coaches around the world.  What started as a single course in the plan to develop the three level curriculum, developed into the extensive program it is today. OPT CCP currently has three levels of coaching, which each containing multiple modules, hundreds of certified or in progress coaches, in person courses, and now has online modules.    Our motto is to continually learn, develop and evolve as a Coach in order to set yourself apart from others in the industry.  Start your OPT CCP journey today!
