Daniel Nyiri is an entrepreneur with one goal: to revolutionize the fitness industry. And in just a few years he has already begun to make an impact. Nyiri’s business has been featured in top-rated publications: Entrepreneur Magazine, Tampa Bay Times, and Business Observer, as well as on TV with “The Doctors” and in fitness industry publications including Men’s Journal.
Daniel is the founder and CEO of 4U Fitness, a personal training studio franchise based in Tampa, Florida. Previously he was a professional hockey player, model, and certified personal trainer originating from Budapest, Hungary. In 2011, with $150 in his pocket and nothing else to his name, he moved to the U.S. after two events changed his life forever. Daniel lost his grandparents to obesity and suffered an injury severe enough to close the door to any potential future in hockey. Instead of letting it shatter his world, Daniel discovered a new purpose in life and decided to pursue a dream to change the world by reducing obesity, one person at a time.
Nyiri prioritized his life, set goals and planned his future. Understanding how much work and capital is needed to build a business, he worked 5 jobs simultaneously to generate income and develop the right relationships so that he can begin his entrepreneurial career. The game changer came next as he developed the American version of E-Fit, the full-body Electrical Muscle Stimulation workout with Dr. Janos Papp.
He worked diligently until he saved enough to purchase a small fitness studio—4U Fitness—for $30,000. Daniel had his next passion, Nina Tamez-Mendez, enter his life. Nina is now Nina Nyiri and Daniel calls her his other half and support partner for life. A Master Trainer and Lifestyle Coach, Nina has become the Head of Trainer Education for 4U Fitness and is a key player in its brand development. With Nina, E-Fit, and extensive knowledge within the topics of health and fitness by his side, Daniel built a client base of professional athletes, Olympians, and celebrity models thus turning a just-barely-making-it business into a $1 million enterprise within two years. E-Fit & Daniel obtained FDA 510(k) clearance in 2014—which is the only full body EMS machine with that status—and it became the final element to complete his formula for guaranteed, proven results for the everyday person.
The fitness industry as it stands is overly saturated with knowledge that isn’t proven and doesn’t apply for the majority of the population. Daniel and his staff of trainers only share information that is research and scientifically based so that people have the right knowledge and can think differently on how to build a sustainable, healthy lifestyle. He understands the difficulties that people face which success and with E-Fit and a customized plan that includes nutritional guidance, Nyiri and 4U Fitness created a no-excuses workout solution.
Daniel says it isn’t about the money. “It’s about building a real company that adds and contributes to this world, just as Steve Jobs, Wald Disney and Henry Ford did. By creating a company that stands for something more and lasts for generations, we are building a legacy that will reshape the future.“
The 4U Fitness team even offers 52 weeks of free training each year to applicants who shows a passion for change beyond anything else. As Daniel and his team continues to grow the business, a profit will be a goal down the line, but the mission forever will be to change the rate of mortality in the U.S. due to obesity related illness.
Nyiri’s success comes with a lot of hard work. He is passionate about learning and makes time for himself with personal journaling and daily reading. If there is one thing Nyiri wants people to know, it is: if he can do it, anyone can do it.
