Everyone has their hidden gems, especially when it comes to gyms. Ya see, it's not the amenities that make the gym, in fact, it's something quite different. You don't need fancy ass equipment and perfectly painted walls to achieve hero status. It's usually not even something physical that separates a gym from being average or ABSOLUTE SAVAGE! What a savage looks for is the approach taken by its ownership and members towards crushing their goals both in and outside the pump-a-torium. The work you put in is everything and at the end of the day, that's all that will matter.
With that said, I think I just found a gem and it's none other than Five Corners Fitness in Lynbrook, New York. (@5CornersFitness). My brother actually tipped me off to the no-nonsense gym, so naturally, I did what any fake journalist would do, I went directly to their Instagram and needless to say, it did not disappoint.
Here's the first thing I saw ...
There it is, fresh out the gate and leaving nothing to the imagination. While most gyms will post their hours or give you an observance of the holiday excuse, Five Corners Fitness gets right up in your mug and says that Easter will not stop this gym from being full blown savages on the day Jesus has risen. Now, as a Catholic myself and former Division 1 alter server, I understand how jammed packed Easter Sunday is. You got Mass at the crack of dawn with the entire family and then you need to crush an Easter Egg Hunt with your younger cousins at a ferocious pace. However, if you're lucky enough to live in Lynbrook, then none of this should stop you from throwing around some iron for a quick 45 minute sesh. MmmmPOW! YUP!
As I continued scrolling I came across what I firmly believe to be the most cocky, in your face, take the world by the balls competition. While over here at absolutesavage.com we're all about being just that, SAVAGE!, the studs and Alphas over at Five Corners Fitness are battling it out to become the "Sauciest Member Of The Week".
MAX, MOST, MOST, WINNER, SAUCEY, PERSONAL GOALS, ETC ... I don't want, I NEED to know what savages have been able to obtain this title of gym legend status. Not to mention, the prize is just a drink or protein shake. I don't claim to be a rocket scientist, but I'm gonna say that 10/10 Sauciest winners take the protein shake and chug it down on the spot like AN ABSOLUTE SAVAGE!
Then lastly, remember those snowstorms we had recently? Yea, they can go take a f'n walk. Five Corners Fitness hates the snow just like the rest of us trying to conduct a little Operation Shredification in preparation of pimpin' it down the beach come May with the buffest swag you've ever seen. So if you thought little Beta Winter Storm Quinn or his friend Toby was gonna to stop the savages at Five Corners from opening, then you must be the type to read People magazine cover to cover on the Elliptical and then go home to catch The View on your DVR.
Seriously though, they hate the snow. Legit don't like it. OPEN ALLLLL DAY! YUUUUP!
So that's it, my hidden gem. I'm gonna need to get over there and see what it's all about ASAP, because there's nothing better than good community with a little savagery to take yourself from average to ABSOLUTE SAVAGE! And from what I can see and have heard, Five Corners Fitness is where the Alphas go to play. RAAHHHHH!!
