Personal Trainers Who Bring the Gym to You

from Newsday

Imagine this: Instead of you going to the gym, the gym comes to you, arriving at your home or office at the appointed time, with an energetic personal trainer ready to put you through a workout.

That's the concept behind GYMGUYZ, a "gym to go" service. The founder, longtime personal trainer Josh York of Plainview, used $15,000 -- most of his life savings -- to launch the company in 2008. He had one employee (himself) and one van.

He now has 636 clients, most of them on Long Island, a staff of 15 certified personal trainers and a fleet of Ford E-250 cargo vans. He hopes to franchise the concept around the country.

York, 30, got the idea while training one of his clients in a health club in New Hyde Park, which is also where he grew up. "She said, 'I wish you could come to my house, but I have no equipment,' " he said. "The lightbulb went off. I said, 'This is so simple,' but the best ideas are simple." more
