Searching for the most hardcore gyms in America.

If you are anything above a casual lifter or gym goer – then you know the frustration of big gym chains like Planet Fitness and their “No Bodybuilders” policy. With the commodification of gyms comes the watering down of what makes them so great – community, hard work, sweat, and iron.

That’s why Rich Gaspari is on the hunt for the greatest hardcore gyms in America – the kind of gym that represents these key qualities that serious lifters desire. In each episode, Rich will visit a different gym located somewhere across the United States and interact with the gym owners, trainers, and members in order to get a complete understanding of what makes that gym so hardcore. He will also experience the culture of the area immediately outside of the gym – giving a full picture of each gym and the communities that they live within.

Much like food travel shows such as Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives but with a bodybuilding twist – Hunt For Hardcore will take the cross section of entertainment and bodybuilding to a new level. All hosted by one of the most legendary bodybuilders in the history of the sport – Rich Gaspari.

This will be a cross country entertainment experience tailor made for bodybuilders – representing the passion, intensity, and of course, hardcore training that we come to expect from this industry but rarely see represented in mainstream entertainment.

Vlad Yudin and Edwin Mejia Jr. are on board as executive producers and Craig Barton will be producer. Hunt For Hardcore is scheduled to release this fall only on the Generation Iron Fitness Network- so make sure to stay tuned to for more updates as we head out of the summer.
