A man has been brutally bashed with a five kilogram weight in an alleged sickening unprovoked attack at a popular gym on the northern Gold Coast.
The vicious assault happened around 8.15pm on Monday at a gym on Days Road in Upper Coomera.
Police say initial investigations suggest the 20-year-old victim was in the open area of the gym, when two men approached him as he was looking at his mobile phone.

“One of the men has then struck the victim to the head multiple times with a five kilogram weight,” Qld Police said.
The man fell to the ground, where he was further assaulted by the pair, before staff and fellow gym-goers ran to his aid.
He was then taken to Gold Coast University Hospital for treatment which required surgery, although police say thankfully his injuries are non-life-threatening.
Detectives from Taskforce Maxima with the Organised Crime Gangs Group are now appealing for anyone who recognises the men in the below video to come forward.
