February 10th, 2024

Leading Personal Training Brand Changing Lives of People of all Fitness Levels in the Columbus Area

COLUMBUS, OHIO GYMGUYZ, the world’s largest in-home and on-site personal training franchise, is expanding its footprint in Columbus, Ohio. GYMGUYZ utilizes a fleet of bright red, branded vehicles to bring the personal trainer, equipment, and workouts right to customers’ doors. The incredible convenience of the service along with its highly customized workouts create dramatic results for clients looking to work out more frequently and consistently.

The new GYMGUYZ territory is owned by Dave Dulin. Dulin was born and raised in Central Ohio. He earned a degree in Finance from Ohio State University before earning a Master’s Degree in Criminology from Xavier University.  Physical activity has always been part of his daily routine consisting of weight training, cardiovascular exercise, and healthy eating. It is this passion for a healthy lifestyle that fueled his desire to help others via his new GYMGUYZ franchise.

“The central Ohio area has grown tremendously over the past few decades, and the need for in-home and on-site fitness trainers and instructors has definitely grown alongside it,” said Dulin. “With a family history of dementia, I’ve always prioritized being physically active as part of my preventative plan. Sometimes, people just need the right personal trainer to motivate them and truly hold them accountable, and I look forward to bringing GYMGUYZ to my community.”

On Sunday, November 19, Dave and his team will be hosting a grand opening event at The Five Party & Event Center (5316 N Hamilton Rd. Columbus, Ohio 43230) starting at 11:30 AM. The event is co-sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association and will include a ribbon cutting ceremony, catered lunch from Clean Eatz, and a group fitness activity with an opportunity to make a charitable donation to the Alzheimer’s Association for participation. 

GYMGUYZ uses a variety of customized fitness programs, including strength training, cardio fitness, sports conditioning, group fitness, weight loss and toning, senior fitness, youth and teen fitness, assisted stretch, and nutrition counseling to help people reach their health goals. GYMGUYZ’s Certified Personal Trainers are experts in using GYMGUYZ methodologies, and they employ various techniques and tools to ensure that no two workouts are ever the same, but are always fun and challenging. GYMGUYZ has no contracts or monthly fees and the first session is always free.

Currently, GYMGUYZ serves over 1,000 cities across three countries and is continuing to grow rapidly as in-home and on-site workouts grow in popularity. Due to its success in the consumer market, GYMGUYZ has recently expanded its capabilities outside of in-home workouts, now offering fitness programs at corporations, schools, hospitals, and residential communities including apartment complexes and senior living centers.
