How Two Personal Trainers Became Self Employed

Josh and Jason York are personal trainers in their mid-20's who wanted to be self-employed. The costs of starting up a gym were too big to consider, so they came up with another idea instead: They bought a couple of vans, started calling themselves the Gym Guyz, and launched a business that brings the gym to their clients' homes.

Josh had a business degree and had been working a 9-to-5 job at a marketing company, but it didn't suit him. He and his brother wanted to pursue their passion for fitness and healthy eating. They both took jobs at gyms around Long Island but eventually decided they wanted to be on their own and work together.
