GYMGUYZ brings the gym, workout to you


By: Marisa Gottesman Associate Editor
Is physically going to the gym holding you back from burning a few extra calories? Then let GYMGUYZ come to you.
The New York-franchise that brings the gym to your home, office or wherever you want to have a work out, has made its way to South Florida.
So if you are too tired to schlep to the gym or aren’t sure what workout is right for you, call Rick Pirozak who owns the franchise for Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Highland Beach, Gulfstream, Ocean Ridge and Parkland.
The idea started was started by Josh York, who became a personal trainer to help put himself through college. Later, he quit his marketing job and started GYMGUYZ in 2008.
Their vans are equipped with everything you need to complete a workout, no gym necessary.
Pirozak said the first visit from the van involves an hour-long free assessment. He will go over all your medical history, fitness history, lifestyle, stress levels and other factors and propose a plan regimented for you.
From there, the concierge service will come to you at a place and time of your choice.
Pirozak bought the franchise less than a year ago. He said he had been living in Boston, but bought a second home in Boca and he had been spending more and more time in Florida. That was when he said he knew he was ready for a change.
He left the world of being a software engineer and entered the fitness realm. He said he was always into working out and had become a certified personal trainer.
“It was a passion and a hobby,” he said. “Now, it’s a business.”
