Muscle Beach, Santa Monica, California
South of the volleyball courts is the original Muscle Beach. Popularized in the 1950s and featured in many films since then, the network of outdoor workout equipment is where Jack LaLanne and other famous body builders trained. Fully restored and refurbished, Muscle Beach serves gymnasts, acrobats and youth with an extensive gymnastics training area. Other features include chinning bars at various heights, parallel bars, rings, a small jungle gym for children and a padded gymnastics area.
