According to Blink's staff, the local community has already embraced the gym. Several eager clients were ready to work out when the doors opened on Friday.
"We're so happy to be open in West Islip," said Area Manager Anthony Cicchesi. "The community has been so welcoming-it's an overwhelming experience."
