Muscle Beach – The Mecca of Bodybuilding

Muscle BeachAll this cold weather is making me wish I was back training on Venice Beach in LA.
This summer I took a trip over to the Mecca of bodybuilding – Muscle Beach. Muscle beach is the exclusive Santa Monica location and is the birthplace of the physical fitness boom that started in the U.S. in the 20th century. It is the worlds most famous outdoor gym and it was great to get to train in such an epic location. Bodybuilding legends such as Arnold Schwarzenegger have trained on this beach so I was in good company!
The gym on muscle beach started in 1934 with predominantly gymnastics activities on the south side of the pier, with the fitness and gym equipment introduced years later.
Filled with people driven by fitness whilst enjoying the fantastic sunshine this was one experience I won’t forget and another to tick off my bucket list.
