Venice is most famous for Venice Beach and its boardwalk, where on any given day thousands of LA residents and visitors would congregate, shop, and watch street preformers. It is a great place to people watch.

In 1930, the WPA installed exercise equipment in a small pen South of Santa Monica Pier. It soon became a popular spot for the newly growing field of bodybuilders, including Vic Tanny, founder of the modern health club, fitness guru Jack LaLanne, and Gold's Gym founder Joe Gold. Due to maintenance issues, the old muscle beach closed in 1959. It was replaced by this new exercise pen, built in 1952 at Venice Beach. The peak of the fame for Muscle Beach was the 1970s and 1980s, when individuals such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny Trejo, and Stanley Williams.

Bill Pettis, from 1978 – 1984 the individual with the most muscular arms in the world, a trainer to Arnold Schwarzenegger, trained at muscle beach for much of his life. He is still there, homeless, usually sitting on a park bench.

I did not find out about this information until I came upon this weathered collage, placed out side busy Muscle Beach, and researched the background. Sad to see he has fallen on such hard times.
