Two Irvington Guys Bring Fitness Home With Mobile Gyms

Sam Langer and Jimmy Bonavita, as they tell it, are two childhood best friends who got the chance to go into business together. Now they are recognized as top franchisees in a fast-growing national fitness brand.

“He’s had my back since elementary school,” Langer, 26, said with a laugh at their home office in Tarrytown.

That was Dows Lane Elementary School in Irvington. The friendship carried through Irvington Middle School and Irvington High. Last year, Langer brought on Bonavita, also 26, as a co-owner in the GYMGUYZ operation he started in Westchester in 2014.

GYMGUYZ, a Long Island-based company that launched in 2008 and now operates in 14 states, offers traveling personal trainers who lead personalized workouts in homes, workplaces and parks — anywhere with enough space.
