Certified trainers will deliver live, one-on-one sessions or small group training classes for members of the rapidly growing fitness franchise
GymGuyz, a fast-growing New York-based in-home and on-site personal training franchise, is introducing online training sessions to meet the demand for at-home fitness programs.
The new training sessions will stream from a 1,700-square-foot personal training studio at the GymGuyz headquarters in Melville, New York. The studio has home-based vibes, providing the ideal setting for live one-on-one sessions or small group training classes with certified trainers.
Launching an online personal training studio is a huge milestone for GymGuyz, says Josh York, founder and CEO.
“Having this designated space for our certified personal trainers and group exercise instructors to connect with clients through remote sessions underscores our commitment to convenience,” said York, who founded GymGuyz in 2008. “Be it an at-home assisted stretch session, a fitness class at your place of work, or now, an online personal training session, GymGuyz offers a range of services to connect people with personal trainers wherever they are.”
Clients can still access the on-demand workouts, create nutrition plans and message personal trainers via the GymGuyz app.
Small group training classes serve a maximum of ten people per session with direct interaction with a personal trainer who will ensure form correction and safety — an approach that GymGuyz says is a standout feature in a crowded on-demand workout space.
GymGuyz coaches send an email with a link to the online sessions before the workout begins. All that is required of clients is six feet of space to work out.
In order to help clients hit their personal health goals, GymGuyz offers a variety of fitness programs ranging from strength training, cardio fitness, sports conditioning, group fitness, weight loss and toning, senior fitness, youth and teen fitness and nutrition counseling.
The fitness franchise recently added assisted stretching to its vast offerings, with a nod to the growing trend of stretch-based modalities. GymGuyz had been piloting assisted stretching in recent months before officially rolling out the service to its clients.
Over the summer, GymGuyz named Phil Brojan president. Brojan had previously served as chief marketing officer and oversaw the profitability and growth of the fitness franchise.
