Josh York, an American entrepreneur and the founder and CEO, started GYMGUYZ in 2008. He is a true entrepreneur driven by passion, no stranger to risk, and a leader who knows the value of building a strong brand.

GYMGUYZ currently has hundreds of territories operating in multiple countries, and destined to be a worldwide brand. Entrepreneur Magazine named GYMGUYZ one of the top 100 Fastest Growing Franchises in 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019.


Josh York was born and raised on Long Island in New Hyde Park, New York and earned a business degree in 2005 from LIUPost. While attending college, York supported himself working as a certified personal trainer in a small studio. Fitness was his passion and changing the lives of his clients through exercise was his goal.

York briefly worked full time for a marketing firm after graduation. The negative work environment he experienced was in direct conflict with his energetic and positive demeanor. As he continued to train his clients in the evening, he began to paint a picture of his future. With a vision, limited resources and his fitness experience, York invested his savings of $15,000 into a new fitness venture. He gave himself two weeks to make the business succeed. However, FUELed by his determination and passion to help others, failure was never an option for York.


In 2008, York started GYMGUYZ in the dining room of his parent’s home with a laptop, a phone, and a file cabinet which contained one folder with his client’s names. He purchased a van, filled it with exercise equipment, and wrapped it with the GYMGUYZ logo. Instead of going to the gym to train his clients he began bringing the workouts to his clients when and where it was convenient for them. The workouts were customized for each individual based on their fitness level and specific goals. When he wasn’t training his clients, he drove the van up and down the Long Island Expressway advertising GYMGUYZ. He produced and printed his own promotional materials, hung flyers in local diners, grocery stores and community centers and began spreading the GYMGUYZ name. Quickly, one folder became multiple folders and one drawer became an entire file cabinet with hundreds of client names. GYMGUYZ was on the way to becoming an on demand personal training service that would revolution the fitness industry.


The demand for in Home Personal Training was growing. Surveys showed clients enjoyed the convenience of working out in their home, local park or a setting of their choice at a time that fit their schedule. In 2010, York hired certified personal trainers, support staff and purchased two additional GYMGUYZ vans to keep up with the demand of over 1,000 clients. By 2012, he expanded the fleet of vans and continued to hire more employees. In 2013, York relocated headquarters from the dining room to an office building on Long Island and began the GYMGUYZ franchising process.


In 2014, York received approval to franchise the GYMGUYZ brand. The first franchise opened in Westchester County, NY in 2014. In 2015, headquarters relocated to a larger office with a state of the art training facility to support the franchise system. In 2017, the first International Mobile Fitness Franchise opened in Canada. By the close of 2018, there were 184 franchised locations throughout the world. The United Kingdom is scheduled to open in 2019.


GYMGUYZ was named the Fastest Growing Franchise in 2017 & 2018 by Franchise Gator. In 2018 Inc.500 listed GYMGUYZ #292 as America’s 500 Fastest-Growing Companies. In 2019, GMGUYZ was listed #231 by Entrepreneur Magazine Franchise 500 for their exceptional performance, an outstanding leap from #470 in 2018. Additionally, GYMGUYZ was named one of the 100 Game-Changer franchises for 2018 by Franchise Dictionary.
