Most local residents agree that it’s been a long winter, but The Fieldhouse says it has benefited from all this snow.

"In 20 years, we’ve never seen an increase like this from February to about March. So, we’re very pleased to be able to service everybody that needs to come in, " says owner, Mick Amicone.

Amicone says more people are going to the gym because they can’t exercise or do their regular routines outside.

"This has been a really bad East Coast/Midwest season for a lot of traditional fitness enthusiasts because they can’t get out. The snow is piled 2.5 and 3 feet high on the side of the roads. So, we’re not safe in a bike environment. We’re not safe in a walking environment because the roads are now closer to the traffic because of the snow pile," says Amicone.
