I sure do remember that, Only.
 
Be honest here ........ Would you agree when me when I say that BODYBUILDING and the SPORT of Bodybuilding and the whole damn shebang including the gyms - was something completely and totally different and lots more fun and reputable back in the 70's?
 
It kind of all made a change for the WORSE when the gyms got bought out by BIG BUSINESS and when the idea of PERSONAL TRAINERS came into existance. I do recall those first few years when you had to attend a "school" to get "licensed" to become a trainer so you could train your friends in the gym.
 
That "trainer" was one of the most obnoxious SOB's I've ever met and she flunked all the competitive bodybuilders who took her course.  And she kept on telling me all sorts of bullshit about how she could train a Bodybuilding Champion in half the time that I could.
 
I think she had a track background and ................ ahhh, forget it.
 
Back in the old days, eveyone in the gym helped eveyone else for free and never had their paws out for $60 plus an hour. In my humble opinion, the PT business is one of the biggest scams since the days of Snake Oil Salesmen, and we still got a lot of them around too.
 
OK, back to some photos. Here's a relatively new one. Easy to ID.



I agree with you Stunt.

PT is a scam & trainers should not be making as much as some are.

I do believe some people need a full time work out partner to crack a whip on them because they have no drive.

Out here in so cal....I know plenty of trainers that make $75-$100 per session & most of it is just counting reps & rotating a schedule.

hahahaha........Reminds me of Rick Stephenson's GF/wife at San Diego Gold's.

Her name is Agnetha-a real hot chick from Sweden. Anyway Rick, who was the main manager of Gold's back then, steered some clients to her for personal training....lol.....

Agnetha did not know a bicep from a latsisimus dorsi....and she would basically just try to encourage people as she trained them....the funniest thing was when she would count reps with her Swedish accent....NOW...that's a vvvonnne....and a vvvTvvvwwwoo.....and a vvvvthrrreeee.....funny as shit. Complete idiot when it came to weight training though-but good eye candy Grin

Absolutely Stunt.  I loved it back then to compared nowadays.  Nearly everything I know or learned I learned by simply asking Louie, Franco, Dennis, Waller, Tony Pearson and many others.  They would let me work in and tell me how to do it while I was with them.  I'll always remember Louie telling me to do barbell curls with your elbows alway in and you hands wider than your elbows.  I leanred more doing the exercises with the people who really knew how to train than anyone PT can learn from a book.  I am still surprised that people all the time ask me questions on how to do a certain exercise or how to do this or how to do that.  And I look the way I do.  But at least my mind is the same.

I hate it when I hear how much a PT will make and then watch what they do.  I ran a club back in the late 70's and all we had was an index card with the name and all the contact info on it.  No computers, no nothing.  Like I've said on here before, I'll never forget the board behind the front counter at World's Gym and seeing Arnold's (among others) in big writing telling them they are late with their dues.  It was $150 a year back then with no money dues.  Very simple.  Joe didn't let anyone slide.  Those were the days.

Some of the military guys with great potential can diet for five weeks and win state contests or place well fairly easily. Here are a couple of guys who were just starting with great potential.

Air Force, this guy saw a notice in the base gym, entered the contest the next week, won it, and was never heard from again.

Rules, that is a good friend of mine doing the side tricep shot by the name of Chad. He movied many years ago but I usually contact him during the Christmas holidays so I will ask him how long he was training before that picture was taken.

He was/is one hell of a down to earth guy and won every contest he ever entered and never could believe that he actually won it . We sent him to compete in a state contest in Las Vegas a while back and he won that one too plus the best poser trophy. He couldn't believe that either.

One of his friends in the AF wrote a great article on him and his low keyed personality which I sent to some of the magazines but none ever published it. Great article of an exceptionally great person and if I can find it, I'll post it on here.

Here's another shot of one of the Marines we met while giving a seminar on base. He was a little guy on the base football team who was a hard hitter and wanted to gain some size so he could put some hurting on the opposing teams, so we set him up on a program and checked him out a couple of months later. It was like night and day so I encouraged him to diet down a bit and enter a local contest scheduled six weeks later.

He did and won and eventually moved to LA to train at Gold's and was known as the Mayor of Gold's Gym because of his southern ways and willingness to help anyone in the gym train harder.

This all happened a long time ago when Peter and the partners were just getting organized on 2nd in Santa Monica.

Not a real great photograph, but he was one of the hard trainers at GOld's Santa Monica who should also get some recognition.

Recognize either one?

The girl is Alison who lived on the North Shore in Hawaii. She was a nurse out there and helped a lot of people who had lots of problems. An exceptionally great lady who actively competed for about 5 years. A great pioneer in ladies' bodybuilding.
 
I forget the year this picture was taken but the location is the old pool area at Caesars Las Vegas during the NPC Nationals. Jeff and Cory won the couples competition that year and Belnap won the overall men's.

Always yelling Marco Polo, they were asked to leave the pool.

This was taken at Caesars pool during a well deserved rest after taking Timmy Belnap shopping for fud. I think that Puffed Rice cakes were brand new on the market that year and we had to find the ones with the lowest carbs.

I guess none of you recall the days in Santa Monica when the House of Pancakes was mobbed with competitors  before the nationals prejudging. You'd have to fight to find a table and get to the contest on time.

Thanx, Bix.

Adding a photo before I sign off.

Name him. And who did he train with for a short time at Gold's Santa Monica?
