Our Journey

All his life, Oguchi Onyewu has always had health and fitness at the center of his life. From beginning soccer at the age of 4, to becoming an internationally known professional soccer player, fitness has always remained a big part of his life.

Having access to some of the greatest performance coaches in the world throughout his career motivated Oguchi to want to bring such elite training, and health advice that he has received as a professional athlete to everyone. Fostering the essence of professional training and methods, and being able to deliver that training to the masses of every ability level was a vision for Onyewu that began to take flight.

With the help of life-long friend and nationally known performance trainer Chris Gorres, Oguchi began to construct a business model in Richmond VA that would provide world-class service to the local community. Addressing certain disparities in the area and striving to help individuals embrace the change of growth in their personal health. With this idea and vision ONYX ELITE was born.

ONYX ELITE is a personal performance facility founded in 2014 by USA soccer star Oguchi Onyewu. ONYX ELITE is a privately owned, personal performance facility focused on helping all our members to achieve their health and fitness goals in a safe, clean, and motivating environment. All of our members are considered to be part of the ONYX Elite family and we share a strong sense of community with each other. We are driven by serving our members and community, and deeply committed to providing first-class customer service. We are concentrated in fitness and health programs for both non-professional and professional athletes as well as mid-size corporations on the east coast. In addition to training and fitness, ONYX ELITE also provides innovated nutritional support and strategies for its members and partners.
