gym fight

A brutal video showing two well-muscled men brawling with each other during peak hours at the gym has gone viral on several social media platforms.

It’s not yet known what started the violent altercation, but the fight lasted more than two minutes before five-to-six other men intervened to end the fracas.

The video from a Fitness Connection at an undisclosed location can be seen below:

“Fight breaks out in gym during peak hours,” Daily Loud tweeted.

“They’re playing though, right?” Asks one spectator as two men appear to be shadowboxing at first. The blows, however, became undeniably vicious as the fight progressed.

That’s when one man knocks the other over and proceeds to beat him with a closed fist. A woman on the phone attempted to break up the fight, but the incident lasted nearly two minutes before gym members got between the two combatants.

A spokesperson for Fitness Connection confirmed the incident to Fox News Digital, but did not specify its exact location, citing privacy of its members.

“We are aware of an incident that occurred inside one of our locations on November 29, 2022,” a statement from Fitness Connection said, according to Fox News.

“As always, the health and safety of our members and Teammates is of the utmost importance and Fitness Connection strongly condemns any acts of violence, especially within our facilities.”

It’s unclear if law enforcement investigated the incident.
