UML Athlete

An athlete is driven by what they can feel in their heart, motivated by the journey that stands between them and their goals. Our athletes hold dear the challenges they face. Their fitness is a priority. Success is only earned. The story of our athletes is not about the end game or the prize. It's about the process and the sacrifice and the dedication that each of them embodies. 

Here's what success looks like at Opex Upper Main Line:

I have been working with OPEX coach Cody Loeffler for about four years now and my experience has been nothing but fantastic. I originally started working with Cody to improve my strength and conditioning for wrestling because I realized that was something that needed work. Working with Cody for a year drastically changed not only how much stronger and fitter I felt than everyone but how much stronger and fitter I appeared than everyone else I saw on the wrestling mat, which led me to a very successful season as a sophomore in high school. After that year of wrestling, I reevaluated my fitness goals and set the goal of making it to the CrossFit Games in 2016 in the teenage division. Cody designed a program for me that optimized the time we had to get as fit as possible, the Open came and I felt as fit as I ever have, although I ended up twenty-fifth I knew that wasn’t the end. We set new goals and kept working, that summer I qualified for the Granite Games. Cody not only wrote a program that got me ready to compete, he helped me improve my eating habits to supplement the training I was doing, and every weekend, Cody would work out with me for three days straight three times a day, if that does not show how invested and dedicated a coach is, I’m not sure what does. OPEX has helped me fly past all my goals faster than I ever thought I would, I would highly recommend OPEX programming to anyone looking to reach goals/improve their fitness, nutrition, and even life.

Training at OPEX Upper Main Line has benefited me so much as an athlete. I have improved both my physical and mental game substantially. Previously, it was difficult for me to go into the gym give my workouts everything I had. I was stuck in a slump, and I felt like I wasn’t making any improvements. I used to fear workouts and even sometimes completely break down in the middle of them. Then, I started training at OPEX Upper Main Line, and that immediately changed. I talked to Emily about my overall fitness goals, and she helped me come up with a plan to achieve them. Now, I look at my workouts confidently and prepare to attack them and give each and every one of them my all. I have seen major improvements in my gymnastics skills, and the numbers on my lifts increase significantly. When I walk into the gym every day, I know that I am progressing and getting closer and closer to reaching my goals. I know that there is a purpose behind my programming, and I am more motivated than ever to work as hard as I can. Overall, I am so happy at OPEX, and I look forward to every day of training.

I have been competing in CrossFit for just over three years. My goal has always been placing top 200 in the CrossFit Open in my age group and making it to the Masters On-Line Qualifier. I realized the standard Crossfit classes were not going to help me with my goal. I decided I needed a custom designed program that would focus on my weakness. I met with Emily to review my health history, challenges and goals. After meeting with her I know I was in the right place. I began working with Emily at Opex Upper Main Line in November of 2016.
After only working with Emily for 4 months I placed in the top 3% in the world in my age division in the 2017 CrossFit Open. The custom designed fitness and nutritional programming I receive from Emily will no doubt help me with my goal. Emily has taken my fitness and mental toughness to a new level. I have never felt so strong, fast and confident. I'm excited to see what the future holds.

As a masters athlete competitive in the sport of fitness now for the last 4 years, training and working with OPEX Upper Main Line, and their staff has been paramount to making progress and working towards my ultimate goal of making it to the CrossFit Games! Cody, Emily, and the entire staff are extremely and are always looking for ways not only to challenge me physically with WHAT we are doing each day, but also educate me about WHY we are doing what we do relative to my short term and long term goals. The OPEX Upper Main Line staff truly embodies the full package when it comes to world class coaching. Everyone is very friendly, welcoming, and although my training plan might look different than that of another client or athlete, there is always a community and team environment feel each time I am there training around so many awesome people. My coach and I have built a great relationship, and while I am regularly challenged with my training, I always feel and trust the plan entirely. OPEX Upper Main Line coaches aren’t just there to provide the elements of my training plan, but also offer a complete nutritional component, that starts with a full screening of your body composition using their on-site Inbody body composition scanner. I was really impressed with this as a tool to really dial in my nutrition for this season, and my regular monthly check ins keep me on track with how I should be fueling myself for peak performance. Working with Cody has also been great because I am now able to rely on one person for every element of the training I need, ranging aerobic capacity to strength and gymnastics work, to sure I am specifically prepped for competition days. As an older athlete, recovery and safety are major concerns for me, and I couldn’t be happier with Cody’s ability to manage my workload and overall volume and intensity each week. I feel incredible!!

OPEX Upper Main Line is a great facility! I am so happy to have found this place. They have welcomed me into their tribe since day 1 and I genuinely know that my coach and the staff are invested in and excited to guide me on my journey to my goals as an athlete. Every athlete needs a coach, I am happy to have found a coach that I know I can rely on for years to come!!

My name is Jonna Trexler. I'm 28 years old. I'm a full time Physician Assistant, but I like to think that what I do after (and sometimes before) work is also a part of my identity. I found the sport of Crossfit about 3 years ago. I was eager to compete from the beginning. Sadly, it look me almost 3 years to find my way to Cody Loeffler and OPEX UML.
I started with Coach Cody in the beginning of June 2017 and haven't looked back. I went from worrying that I wasn't doing enough volume in training each day to believing that the intensity and purpose in what I was doing in training was just enough. There is a quote, "Be impressed by intensity, not volume." I would say that quote is exactly what defines my programming and training with Cody and OPEX UML. I have learned and continue to learn that what Cody programs for me via FitBot app, is another brick down. Each week I learn something new about myself, about functional fitness, about health, and about being a winner. In short, whatever your fitness goals are, you cannot do it alone. I look forward to continuing to grow my mind, body, and success with Cody and OPEX UML.


Are you ready to Go Forth, and chase greatness?
