GYMGUYZ Soars To the Top of Franchise Gator’s 100 Fastest-Growing Franchises List

After an Explosive Year, the Personal Training Brand is Revolutionizing the Fitness Space and Bringing Groundbreaking Results to New Territories Across the Country

PLAINVIEW, N.Y. (PRWEB) February 18, 2020 - Mobile personal training concept GYMGUYZ recently ranked in the second-place spot on Franchise Gator’s annual list of the Top 100 Fastest-Growing Franchises. This top-three ranking and first-page placement comes after a wildly successful year for the #1 in Home Personal Training® franchise.

“We are honored by this recognition and owe it to our franchise owners, personal trainers and everyone involved for building this business from the ground up in record time,” said Josh York, Founder and CEO of GYMGUYZ. “If you surround yourself with the right people and create a culture that people are energized to be a part of, success and growth will follow.”

Last year, the brand was recognized as No. 5 on Inc. Mag's 10 Hottest Franchise Businesses in America which highlighted their growth of more than 801% over the last 3 years. In 2019, the brand continued to build on this momentum by bringing its creative in-home and onsite workouts to new domestic territories, including California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Florida, California, Illinois and Virginia. In 2020, the brand is focusing on expanding its onsite corporate wellness business and accelerating international growth in places like Europe and the Middle East.

“As a mobile-based concept that focuses on in-home and onsite convenience, combined with maximum client accountability that only the most skilled trainers can deliver, GYMGUYZ is the future of the industry and the ‘Amazon’ of fitness,” said Phil Brojan, Chief Marketing Officer. “Our disruptive model of delivering the workout to the client has gotten us a long way in a short period of time. Now, we are excited to continue changing people’s lives, serving our growing roster of franchise owners, and experiencing some of the fastest growth in the fitness space.”

This is the 7th annual Top 100 list that Franchise Gator has released. The list was developed to assist prospective franchisees in their search for a franchise opportunity to invest in and focuses on company growth, financial stability, experience and several other criteria in an effort to help the average franchise buyer identify minimal risk potential. The list is also meant to highlight more affordable options for the average franchise buyer.

“I’ve studied hundreds of franchise opportunities, and GYMGUYZ represents all of the traits we look for in a Top 100 franchise,” said Eric Bell, General Manager, Franchise Gator and Vice President, Franchise Ventures. “Congratulations to GYMGUYZ for being an exemplary opportunity among many to choose from.”

GYMGUYZ delivers convenient, customized and creative workouts to help every client meet their own personal goals. The company also focuses on small group training and fitness classes held onsite at corporations, school, and hospitals. Training programs begin with a complementary health and fitness assessment that uses body composition technology to measure everything from muscle mass to basal metabolic rate. Nutritional habits are also evaluated in order to structure a training plan designed to achieve the client’s fitness goals within an agreed upon period of time. Due to the uniquely personalized approach the company takes, GYMGUYZ prioritizes cultivating a high level of trust and respect between trainers and clients. This approach is so well received that GYMGUYZ holds an NPS score of 94—well above industry average and showcasing the positive response clients everywhere have toward the company.
