78-year-old man’s wild rampage outside gym caught on camera: ‘Nothing will stop this man from working out’


Footage has captured the moment gym-goers had their evening workouts interrupted due to a Melbourne, Australia man’s alleged drunken rampage outside a gym.

In videos posted to TikTok, an agitated 78-year-old man is observed repeatedly kicking a glass door situated at the entrance of Anytime Fitness Collingwood.

The man can be heard grunting as his sharp kicks shatter the glass.

He momentarily stops and appears to mouth “open the door” before charging at it with his leg again.

As the incident intensified, the person filming the video appeared to guard themself by hiding behind a number of exercise bikes.

Meanwhile, an automated announcement rang out throughout the gym, appearing to say “an emergency button has been pressed.”

Then in a second video, the man is observed lying on the floor before four police officers come to his aid.

While the conversation between the man and the officers is inaudible, the man can be seen gesturing towards the gym-goers at one stage.

After talking to the man, the officers helped him stand up and escorted him away from the venue.

Victoria Police alleged the incident – which was filmed by startled onlookers inside the gym – unfolded just before 8:25 pm on Sunday night.

It’s understood no staff were at the venue at the time due to staff hours concluding at 2 p.m. on Sundays.

The videos received thousands of views before the person who posted them deleted the footage.

“Nothing will stop this man from working out,” one person commented.

“Honestly, what makes someone think this is okay? The gesture of ‘C’mon. I’m trying to get the door open. Help me out!’ is wild,” another person said.

News.com.au contacted Anytime Fitness for comment, however the invitation was declined.
