What is a Big Dawg?
We have high level fitness enthusiasts who strive to be better at a lot of things, not just one. We have high level thinkers who understand the connection between the body and mind. We have respect for all ideas around fitness and truly allow an area for open mindedness. We welcome all; but be prepared for discomfort, mental and physical - this allows forward momentum.

500,000 Prescriptions and Counting!
OPT has always thrived on retention and referrals. Clients often comment on the quick results they see and feel, but even more, I love the feedback clients give on their increased energy, motivation, and understanding for a newfound journey and of course their long-term RESULTS. Clients are learning that fitness should INVIGORATE you, NOT deplete you. I strongly believe in individualized programming... why? Because every human being is different, from our energy systems, our day to day schedule, to job and family demands, and more... Bottom line: Fitness and health is a journey, so it needs to evolve and change as we do.
We have now developed 3 levels of Exclusive Coaching. Believe me, you will "experience more than results". Are you wondering what OPT Exclusive Coaching is? To sum it up, it's individualized exercise, lifestyle, and nutrition prescription with ongoing correspondence support, plus phone or Skype consultations every 6 weeks. We offer Coaching both locally and remotely (virtual). Whether you live in Australia, Japan, Europe, or are local folks, we have a system in place that works for your location, needs, and goals.
If you feel you just need a consultation without ongoing coaching, we also offer that option. Our Coaches and I provide consultation on:
Setting personal, fitness, and lifestyle goals
Further understanding athlete essence and performance objectives
Helping support and clarify direction
Business and Coaching mentorship
Supporting Coaches in further understanding coaching concepts and client needs
My goal in life is to help Coaches become better Coaches and help clients evolve on their fitness journey, one prescription at a time!
