GYMGUYZ Announces National Partnership with Think Kindness to Promote Positive Lifestyles for Students Nationwide

Leading mobile fitness concept joins think kindness in initiative that inspires measurable acts of kindness in local communities.

PLAINVIEW, NY (PRWEB) September 21, 2016 - At its first national franchisee convention last week, GYMGUYZ, the number one mobile fitness concept in the United States, announced a pivotal partnership with the Reno, NV-based Think Kindness organization to emphasize the importance of positivity for America’s youth.

Founded by Brian Williams, the mission of Think Kindness is to inspire measurable acts of kindness in schools and communities around the world. The organization’s process begins with a motivational assembly to execute a kindness takeover of an elementary, middle, or high school, serving as a call to action for students to change the world in 15 days.

“Think Kindness will allow us to motivate more young minds across the country and continue working toward our goal of inspiring a healthy lifestyle in as many people as we can, regardless of age,” said GYMGUYZ Founder and CEO Josh York.

Williams started the organization based on the idea that the way people treat others is a direct reflection of the way they treat themselves, which begins with a maintaining a healthy lifestyle – something GYMGUYZ works every day to help clients develop and sustain.

Through the partnership, in cities where GYMGUYZ has a presence, local franchisees will help Think Kindness make an impact on area schools. The local owners will stop by classrooms and hold discussions with students to reinforce the importance of displaying kindness on a daily basis. Together, GYMGUYZ and Think Kindness will show students that the way they treat others goes hand in hand with the way they treat themselves, and that this may start in the classroom but does not have to end there.

“At the end of each school assembly, schools are challenged to document 5,000 acts of Kindness in just 15 days.” Williams said. “Many students think this is impossible, but soon they realize they can not only hit this goal, but surpass it. Inspiring people to believe in themselves is something that GYMGUYZ does in homes across America, now we are taking it to the next level in schools.”

York has always believed that establishing a healthy lifestyle starts with a healthy mindset. He believes that promoting this from an early age is valuable, which is why GYMGUYZ offers and has celebrated some of its greatest success stories with clients in their youth and adolescent years.

“Our goal is to set students up to tackle negativity with positivity through Think Kindness and provide a way of thinking that will not only help them mentally but also physically, as a clear mindset now can lead to a healthy attitude for the remainder of their lives,” said York.
