All the other stuff

What makes us different:

Our owner: Jeff Wass

Jeff began his time as a professional trainer in 2008. Before that he has always been a student how the body moves and understanding and studying different types of training methodologies. After years of sport (NCAA) and learning about mental toughness through years of military training (USMC), he implemented a new and unique style of training at a local gym. He studied many variations of fitness and learned the key ingredients to a workout regimen that would challenge you mentally, physically as well as scalable for all levels.

 After instructing both personal training and small group classes, he found where he could excel and went off on his own and started The Hurt Locker in late 2014.


Not of a mindset to settle, Jeff realized there was an opportunity in Clarence to bring another form of fitness to the area – Hot Yoga. Continuing with the desire to bring fitness to everyone, in a non-boring way, he pursued Hot Flow Yoga with a Vinyasa style. Your body is always in motion. You have the ability, for one hour, to check your laundry list of “to do’s” at the door, and focus on you, your breath and your movements.

As time went by, and wanting to provide the best service possible to his athletes and members, the latest business to open its doors is The Recovery Locker. In this space, there is a stretching area, ice bath, and infrared saunas.

The Locker is a family of brands, we focus on making our members stronger, both mentally and physically.
