GYMGUYZ, the world’s largest in-home and on-site personal training franchise, recently held its seventh annual Recharge convention in Orlando, Florida. On the heels of the launch of its Assisted Stretch Services, which was the focus of this year’s convention, the three-day conference was packed with exciting presentations and roundtable discussions aimed at sharing best practices for franchise partners to leverage assets and resources.
