“Points of Interest in Venice, CA”

Muscle Beach was established on the beach area south of the Santa Monica Pier in 1933 as a part of a beachfront movement of gymnasts, acrobats and many other talented athletes who converged on a small section of the Santa Monica coastline. Very soon it became so popular, that it became the most famous outdoor gym in the world – and is now known as springboard of the Physical Fitness Movement of the 20th Century. In 1951, 17 years later, the second most famous beachfront gym arrived – the Venice Beach “Weight Pen” – which eventually became known as today’s “Muscle Beach Venice”. This website is intended to unveil the history of Muscle Beach. Visit here to learn genuine facts and first-hand history and meet some of the pioneers of the Muscle Beach movement – with more being added here ahead!
