| Last updated
A man has been hospitalised after a massive brawl broke out inside a Liverpool gym. You can watch a clip of the incident below:
Shocking footage shows a number of men as they fistfight at the Everlast Gym in Aintree, Merseyside.
At the start of the clip, four men scuffle among the weights and cycling machines at the fitness club, throwing multiple punches.
Two blokes can be seen throwing hands while another two square up to each other.
The latter pair, one of which is holding a weight, runs off camera before a man returns and punches one of the remaining combatants at least three times.
Stunned gym-goers stand by in shock as the brawl unfolds - it's hardly what you expect to see when you're trying to get your mid-morning workout in.
Eventually a group of people step in to break it up, with one woman shouting: "F***ing stop."
Police arrived at the scene not long after it unfolded yesterday morning (28 February).
Officers confirmed that at least one of the men involved in the fist fight was hospitalised with a head injury.
A Merseyside Police spokesman said: "We can confirm that officers were in Aintree following an incident earlier today, Tuesday 28 February.
"At around 10.25am, officers were called to Everlast Gym on Ormskirk Road to reports of fighting between males at the location.
"A man in his 20s subsequently attended hospital with a head injury."
Enquiries are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact @MerPolCC with the reference 251.
The footage has been circulating on Twitter, where it's garnered a strong reaction from the online community.
One person joked: "All because someone walked into their shot while doing a live."
"Could hear that punch by the lad running in on 20 secs," said another.
A third quipped: "Steroids got a lot to answer for."
Many commenters focused on the man who did a runner mid-fight, including this person who asked: "Why was the little fella legging it with the weight?"
Another wrote: "Hahahahahah kid with the weight parcelled there," with a third adding: "Do you think he just remembered he'd left his oven on or his backdoor unlocked?"
"Wonder how long Braveheart with the weight waited outside til he came back in for his car keys," said a fourth.
