Cool Videos: Arnold Schwarzenegger goes undercover at the gym to pump you up

01.22.2014by:

If you've ever seen the documentary PUMPING IRON, then you know that Arnold Schwarzenegger has a gift when it comes to training. His motivational dialogue that accompanies his workouts is kind of legendary (and highly quotable), so when the famed actor/governor/weight lifter went undercover as "Howard" at Gold's Gym in Venice Beach, the patrons there were more than a little surprised and baffled by his appearance. Looking like an Austrian "Machete," Arnold drops some of his weight training tips on customers busy getting their swell on, which is uncomfortably hilarious. The video was made in order to help promote Arnold's After-School All-Stars program and a contest to win a day "living like Arnold" (details here). Arnold has always had a goofy, playful side and this shows that he's still got a sense of humor, even when he's not getting ready to dispense bad guys in a variety of colorful ways.

This is not a baby gym!:

Arnold will next be seen in David Ayer's SABOTAGE on April 11, 2014 and THE EXPENDABLES 3 on August 15, 2014.

I love Arnold, he look like a really nice guy. Also, I can't wait to see him in Sabotage.

This is Gold's Gym, not a Baby's Gym.

This is really funny! I don't understand how people don't understand that the joke is that the make-up was bad and wouldn't fool anyone. That's what makes it funny!

Getting Danny Trejo vibes. And I'd love to see that face on the woman when she realises she high-fived Arnold Schwarzenegger.

look it's asian Arnold Schwarzenegger!

LOL! Great stuff! There is NO WAY a fake mustache, hair, and a hat is gonna fool anyone (especially in California). His face and voice are so iconic. He could completely change his face, and his voice would still give him away. I'm here to pump you up!!

This whole thing reminds me of Kindergarten Cop a lot. "This is Golds gym, not a baby gym!"

I love Arnold but what I don't get is this, if actors from other country's can come here and do an English accent why can't Arnold? Look at the dude from walking dead I had no idea he was not American. I guess it shows that Arnold is not a real actor.

Arnold talks about that in his autobiography, actually. He says that it was obvious he was never going to be an Oscar caliber actor and, I believe it was in preparation for "Stay Hungry", his vocal coach at the time made the decision to help Arnold soften his accent instead of getting rid of it entirely. Being a different kind of actor doesn't mean he's not a "real" one.

I completely agree with you short round. There all kinds of actors, and Arnold happens to be a great one. Maybe just not in Hamlet Shakespeare type roles. Though his role as Claudius in the movie Last Action Hero was pretty funny!

Arnold would not have the cultural allure and screen charisma if he tried to hide his accent.

I agree with you both Short Round and Hip-Hop Legend (except that Arnold was playing Hamlet and not Claudius in the segment from LAH. In fact, his first line as Hamlet is "Claudius... you killed my fathah... BIG MISTAKE!")

His voice is too recognizable.

They should have gone full one Bad Grandpa makeup, or given him a biker look. I could do better than that fake stache.

I think that the makeup was so minimal so he could easily be recognized (like he was immediately in the video). That was the whole joke.

I'm giving the video a thumbs down because Arnold is an asshole for doing what he did to his family.

You do realize that 95% of Hollywood actors, actresses, directors, etc. have likely been unfaithful or slept with others who were married or in relationships, right? Arnold's situation was highly publicized but anybody is naïve if they think he is a part of some elite demographic.
