Admire gymnasts and acrobats showing off their tricks at Original Muscle Beach. Established in the 1930s, the beach first got attention when legendary bodybuilders Joe Gold and Vic Tanny started lifting the weight equipment. Today, the weight equipment is at Venice Beach, but gymnasts and acrobats still come here to train. Bring your camera, but be sure to ask before snapping shots of the athletes in action.

  • Love this place!!! Great place to just chill and relax. It's quite simple and just have fun. You can go any day if you want to. It's a very relaxing vibe.
  • One of a kind place in the world. Arnold Schwarzenegger lifted weights HERE where the sign is NOT where muscle beach is now in Venice with modern accessories. Here was iron only.
