GYMGUYZ is # 1 in Home Personal Training. We are a franchise company whose main focus is individualized one-on-one fitness, group sessions, and corporate fitness. GYMGUYZ was established in 2008 by Josh York, Founder. Josh has been working in the fitness industry since 1999 and devotes all of his time to growing the business. When GYMGUYZ started in 2008 with only one van, we trained people only in the local area. Now, we have a fleet of vans and are servicing the tri-state area. GYMGUYZ has an amazing team of certified personal trainers and licensed massage therapists that use a unique philosophy that targets all aspects of health and fitness. The GYMGUYZ vans are stocked with state of the art equipment that trainers bring to clients to provide excellent one-on-one or group workout sessions. Our services include weight loss, body sculpting, bodybuilding, weight training, therapeutic athletic/stretch, strength training, senior fitness, obstacle course training, kickboxing, group training, corporate fitness, post & pre natal exercise, pool workouts, pre-teen and teen fitness training, cardio fitness, professional sports conditioning, nutrition counseling, deep tissue massage, swedish massage, and sports massage therapy.
New Category: GYMGUYZ created a new category within the fitness industry, bringing the gym to their clients; we currently have no competition. We are revolutionizing the fitness industry.
Our Service: Our clients still use their local gyms but work with GYMGUYZ to receive the “WOW” customer service which stems from our 3 C’s which is Convenient, Customized and Creative workouts.
Client Retention: We have a client retention rate of 97%. All of the clients that our founder, Josh York, trained when he opened in 2008, still train with our coaches.
Client Success: Our clients have lost over 6,000 pounds in the past two years.
Recurring Revenue: Recurring revenue is obtained by clients training 2-6 days a week, and with classes throughout the week there is a consistent flow of money.
Scalability: Unlike conventional gyms, there is no need for brick and mortar. Like our founder, Josh York, you could start this business in your dining room. Once you get to 3-4 vans, you may need to consider getting a small office space to keep up with demand. Overall, there is very little overhead incurred.
Recession Proof:People will always want to look and feel good and are willing to pay for the proper coaches to help them reach their health and fitness goals.

– Sam Langer, GYMGUYZ Westchester
When you join GYMGUYZ you’re joining a network of innovative fitness professionals who are passionate about what they do. We’re successful because our clients get results and they refer people they know. I launched GYMGUYZ Peachtree as a single owner/operator with one van, and after 5 months we have a staff of 6 and our third van arriving soon. It’s a business that scales well as you build your client base, but that’s not the best part. The greatest benefit to being a part of GYMGUYZ is our culture of making a difference in people’s lives through fitness.
