GYMGUYZ® is recognized as the largest home personal training company in the world, dedicated to helping people, changing lives and bringing the workouts to its clients — anywhere. With the intention of being the largest fitness brand in the world, having the right tools and resources in place to handle the scalability, growth and differentiation of the franchise will always be a priority to achieve that goal. Josh York, founder and CEO, and franchise owners James Bonavita and Sam Langer share their thoughts and experiences about how ADP® has helped.
With a set of standards of what’s expected when rolling out new franchisees, it’s helpful that the consistency of ADP’s product and service is already there.

Protecting the franchise brand
As a franchisor, your top priority is to protect your brand and make sure that the concept you built can grow in a scalable way and that your franchisees are compliant and supported in a way that allows them to grow their business. I recommend that all my franchisees use ADP, especially because of the HR component. I rely on ADP for helping my franchisees directly with employee handbooks and hiring paperwork and to be a resource for the franchisees to call if they have specific HR questions. With a set of standards of what’s expected when rolling out new franchisees, it’s helpful that the consistency of ADP’s product and service is already there.
Powerful tools with RUN Powered by ADP (RUN)
The most important thing is for us is to work on the business, not in the business. RUN Powered by ADP allows us to side-step the time-consuming administrative work and focus that time on returning phone calls, securing sales, creating new workout plans and driving revenue. I always say you should focus on your strengths and delegate your weaknesses. That philosophy matches perfectly with RUN. But it’s been more than just a fix for our payroll. I use the entire platform of solutions and the HR component has been a huge win for us. The HR capabilities that RUN provides are very useful, especially from a franchise perspective.
