Maximum Capacity with Minimal Stress: OPEX Programs the CanWest Games
From the office to the gym, competition finds its way into all aspects of our life. Working to win draws on not only our physical strength, endurance, and power but our commitment, cooperation, concentration, and creativity – all things worth striving for in their own right. For these reasons and more OPEX Fitness are excited to be programming workouts for the CanWest Games; an event celebrating the best of competition.
At OPEX Fitness we specialize in individualized training. Our coaches take into consideration movement patterns, fitness background, lifestyle factors and fitness goals before designing a completely individualized program for the client. Whether it’s an elite athlete or someone just looking to take their health and wellbeing to the next level, that program is monitored daily and upgraded as their fitness evolves.
Training across all three energy systems (alactic, lactic and aerobic) is another characteristic of an OPEX Fitness workout program. Extensive research in this area has taught us that proper energy systems training is absolutely necessary for maximizing performance and minimizing the risk of overtraining.
We’ll be bringing both our approach to training and our 20 years of experience in working with a breadth of athletes to the programming of the CanWest Games. As a competitor you can look forward to a thoughtful series of workouts that will thoroughly test you across all fitness modalties. From the online qualifiers through to the games themselves, the intention of the workouts is to permit you to work to maximum capacity and yet still leave you in good shape to return to training and your everyday life.
With this in mind and just weeks left to the qualifiers our best advice when it comes to preparation is to ensure you peak your training early to give your system enough time to recover and freshen up before the competition begins.
We look forward to your participation in the CanWest Games. Best of luck.
