Owner description: Weight lifters still strut their stuff at this outdoor gym where, in the 30s, 40s and 50s, crowds would gather to watch young men and women honing their bodies, some of whom, like Vic Tanny and Jack LaLanne, went on to fame in the fitness world.

We went at the peak of summer in mid June and there was literally nobody there that was genuinely training. No weights and just tourists trying the odd thing here and there... we were a bit disappointed as it wasn't what we had expected. Still nice to go though!

Don't get the attraction, looks like my gym with a tanning option. I would not go our of my way to go there as a tourist, but its another nice California beach, and probably a nice place to workout if you are a local..

We were able to spend a while at muscle beach and the people that were there were very open to invite you to try out the apparatus and to give helpful hints and encouragement.

This was not what you would expect to find if you were looking for a glitzy outdoor gym. Just a relatively small spot with some people excessing.
