    Thanks mudge

    Eveytime I watch "Pumping Iron" I want to go there, and I've watched "Pumping Iron" about 30 times or more. That was a real gym. Today I see people (gym bunnies) spandex, leatard, bright pink, whatever. Stairmaster addicts, and those dedicated to the eliptical. Sux.

    Gold's Venice still has a few pieces of equipment from when they opened. It may sound corny...but there's something very cool about doing leg extensions and knowing Arnold used the same machine at one point.

    I dont think that sounds corny at all.
    But when you disarm them, you at once offend them by showing that you distrust them, either for cowardice or for want of loyalty, and either of these opinions breeds hatred against you.

    Damn it, I would kill to use any old piece of equipment that Arnold ever used! Maybe when he's done with Maria Shriver.................

    I wasn't aware that this sad piece of news had already been posted so quickly.


    Anyway this guy was a great pioneer & helped many bodybuilders including Arnold & other greats.

    At least he had alot of great accomplishments & a long/enjoyable life.


    He will be missed.

    I'm not. I was just surprised how fast it was posted as I thought ppl hadn't heard it yet. I posted it right away as soon as it came on the news.

    But I'm not surprised that duplicate threads have been posted especially regarding news topics.

    But since it was duplicated, I don't think it was a big deal. It was duplicated so what, I replied my regrets here. That's what's important.

    I'm assuming Gold has kids who have taken over or have already taken over?

    It is always good that we have those that are truly interested in helping others achieve their very best. This world needs more of those that think of and help others for the benefit of all. Helping others achieve their physical health and fitness is a basic thing and paramount. It is hard to live life when you do not have your very best in health. Working towards being your very best and having others guide you and help you truly is very special.

    From what I know of, he sold the Gold's chain some time ago, but then did World Gym later.
