Staff at a gym in Rhode Island arrived at work this week to find someone had broken multiple windows, causing damage and a mess.

Managers at the Pro Fitness gym in Warwick told WPRI-TV that more than 20 windows were smashed. Broken glass and rocks were scattered across the gym floors.


“It’s all the way around the building,” said Pro Fitness regular Sally Eccleston, who has been working out at Pro Fitness for more than 30 years. “It’s just ignorant.”

Pro Fitness owner Rob Pereyra told WPRI-TV that there is a $10,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest.

Pro Fitness employees were forced to turn members away while cleaning up the mess.

Some members were frustrated by the vandalism.

“It’s malicious,” Chamberlee said. “There’s no need for this. People don’t have anything better to do with their time, I guess.”

The Warwick Police Department said it is investigating the incident.
