Take Out From the Gym

Take Out From the Gym

by Susan Neuhalfen

Baby it’s cold outside. Sometimes it’s hard to get motivated to get to the gym and once you get there, your motivation wanes.

What if the gym came to you? Complete with a trainer to help and motivate you?

Meet Steve and Kristin Clark, owners of the GYMGUYZ franchise for the North Texas area. GYMGUYZ is a mobile fitness program that comes to you.

“So many people want to reach their goals but don’t know how to get there,” said Steve. “We make it easier to help them achieve results by tailoring a program for them.”

GYMGUYZ will come to your house, garage, a park, or wherever you like to exercise and bring the equipment you need to reach your goals. They take measurements, do a biometric read (BMI, muscle mass, body fat, etc.), discuss nutrition and put together a package that works specifically for you. By the way, they will train couples as well.

“There’s a certain accountability when couples train,” said Steve. “We always recommend working out with someone.”

The trainer, Michael, is a big fit guy that looks like a bar bouncer, but don’t let his looks deceive you. He’s a non-stop research bookworm with a master’s degree in athletic training/kinesiology as well as a degree in psychology. He has the background and education to work with any training and nutrition challenges. He is a stickler for exercise done right and will spend more time working with you on form than anything.

“One of the biggest benefits I hear from clients is that they have better mobility because they’re able to do things they weren’t able to do before,” said Michael who spends the first 3-4 weeks with a client making sure that exercises are done right. “That comes from proper training. If you’re even a few degrees off, you could be exercising the wrong muscle or worse, doing damage to yourself.”

Michael explained that he has to get a lot more creative with his exercises but he thinks it makes for a better workout.

“It breaks that stigma of waiting for a machine and then getting into the habit of only working on certain machines at the gym,” said Michael. “It builds your confidence a lot quicker when you see results and you won’t do that if you’re stuck in the same routine.”

Michael is also well versed in nutrition and loves to help clients with gradually changing their meal plans. He prefers a comfortable approach – no binging or starving – and whatever you do, don’t say the word “diet” to him.

“If diets worked there wouldn’t be thousands of them,” he said frankly.

GYMGUYZ Founder & CEO Josh York said that he came up with the GYMGUYZ idea for his clients’ convenience.

“Everyone is able to get food delivered now you can get your fitness the same way,” said Josh. “Think of us as take out from the gym.”

With no drive time, clients save at least an hour out of their day with no back and forth driving, traffic and no excuses to turn around or stay in bed. When asked the craziest place he ever taught a class, Josh said that he actually conducted a class in the subway in New York. No kidding.

The Clark’s GYMGUYZ services Argyle, Flower Mound, Bartonville, Highland Village and western Lewisville, as well as Colleyville, Keller and Southlake. For more information call 972-538-0999.
