PATCHOGUE, NY — For those hoping to lose the “quarantine 15,” a new fitness center recently opened up Patchogue.
Owner Vincenzo Masone, who competes as a super heavyweight bodybuilder, said South Shore Iron at NPV on 208 East Main Street is a space for others who have a passion for bodybuilding, health and fitness. He is opening the business alongside co-owner David McIntyre.
The 28,000-square-foot health club has three floors of equipment and various training programs.
“Our facility is run by current and former fitness professionals who know how to assess and evaluate the everyday person in order to help them achieve their fitness goals,” Masone told Patch.
The 27-year-old, who is hoping to obtain his professional status as a bodybuilder this year, delayed the opening date of his first-ever business until the state allowed fitness centers to open at 33 percent capacity August 24.
Despite the delay, Masone and McIntyre were excited to open in Patchogue.
“Patchogue is a young, inspiring town that is full of energy,” Masone said. “We cater to the demographics of this community for people of all ages. We have something for everyone. The town of Patchogue has been building for years and is becoming the ultimate strip on Long Island. We are proud to be a part of that and to be able to provide a service for the community.”
The two said that anyone who walks into the business will instantly become part of their “fitness family.”
