Paul "PJ" Brownell

Owner/On-Site Coach

PJ has been in fitness his entire life. After joining the Army, PJ's passion for fitness really started to come to life when he realized how exercise could have effects on not only his physical self, but also his mental and emotional self. After the Army, PJ dove into coaching as a full-time profession. That search to professionalize coaching lead him to OPEX and eventually to Texas to open up OPEX Round Rock.
