GYMGUYZ is changing lives every day!

Headquartered in Melville, New York, and founded in 2008 by fitness specialist Josh York, the brand utilizes a fleet of branded vehicles to bring expert personal trainers and state-of-the-art fitness equipment to their customers’ doors to provide fantastic and efficient workouts.

GYMGUYZ has a diverse client base that ranges from seasoned fitness fanatics, to high school athletes, to people living with and working through disabilities and medical conditions. The brand’s workout plans, customized for each individual, include strength training, cardio fitness, sports conditioning, weight loss and toning, youth training, senior fitness programs, and more.

GYMGUYZ comes from humble beginnings. Upon college graduation in 2007, Founder and CEO Josh York worked at a marketing firm during the day, and as a personal trainer in the evenings. He eventually decided the 9-5 office life was not for him, and instead, wanted to follow his passion for fitness. York wanted to develop a solution for people who were struggling to become consistent gym-goers. Tapping into his creativity, his professional background in marketing, and his solid knowledge of health and fitness, Josh launched GYMGUYZ with nothing but a laptop and one van. He conducted business in his parents’ dining room with a cordless phone and one folder with a few client names.

GYMGUYZ has grown exponentially since then, and now services nearly 1,000 cities internationally, including in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada. In November of 2022, GYMGUYZ celebrated the purchase of its brand new, 18,000 square-foot state-of-the-art headquarters in Melville, New York. Due to its growing success and diverse client base, GYMGUYZ has launched new fitness programs outside of in-home workouts, now offering programs at major corporations, schools, hospitals, and senior living centers. GYMGUYZ will continue to remain innovative and expand based on the needs corporations, remote workforces and the ever-growing consumer demand for convenience. GYMGUYZ is an exciting franchise opportunity that allows entrepreneurs to be a part of redefining the in-home and on-site personal training and fitness industry. Entrepreneurs will also be a part of a company that puts culture first, and focuses on providing an energetic, fun and engaging environment for all. York believes positive energy is contagious, and in order for a team to be successful, everyone needs to feel that energy on a daily basis.

GYMGUYZ is always coming up with ways to keep team members happy and energized. GYMGUYZ doesn’t require a brick-and-mortar office space, so new franchise partners can be up and running in as little as eight weeks. The brand provides unmatched training and support to set each franchise owner up for success. GYMGUYZ franchise partners can expect extensive initial training at GYMGUYZ Headquarters, ongoing corporate support, and assistance with setup activities like launching marketing campaigns and planning a grand opening event meant to raise funds for meaningful charitable organizations. Franchise partners do not need to have a background in fitness. Each franchisee comes from a variety of backgrounds and careers. Franchise partners will work with a highly trained personal training team that will break down the traditional barriers to getting fit and implement healthy lifestyles with the clients they work with. GYMGUYZ has an unprecedented opportunity to grow rapidly, as in-home personal training has never been more popular and more needed in the community.

GYMGUYZ territories are available across the globe, and the company is currently targeting the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan area, Miami, and Boston for expansion. For more information about GYMGUYZ franchise opportunities and available territories, visit
