Arnold Schwarzenegger charges $150,000 each Gold’s Gym workout
Arnold Schwarzenegger has come clean about the fact that he now charges clients $150,000 for a single training session at Gold’s Gym in Venice Beach, California. On one particular Sunday, he trained with not one, but two different groups, and all of them generously contributed the aforementioned sum, although to a worthy cause.
Arnold met Morris Flancbaum from Florida at the now-famous Venice Beach location so that they could exercise together under Arnold’s guidance. The Terminator gave Flancbaum and his family an exercise session so that they could all become in shape.
The Flancbaums made their generous offer at a benefit auction for Arnold’s After-School All-Stars program, which he founded more than 30 years ago to provide educational opportunities for disadvantaged youngsters in the United States.
The non-profit After-School All-Stars organizes sports and other activities for kids in the afternoons. About one hundred thousand kids in sixty different American cities are currently receiving assistance from the charity.
About $5.2 million was raised at the event from those who are dedicated to aiding at-risk youngsters; $1.75 million of that came directly from the auction. Arnold also auctioned off items of his own wardrobe, humidors, and even a ride in a military tank.
In addition to Arnold, Sylvester Stallone, Danny DeVito, and one of the 90s’ most feared villains, Dolph Lundgren, appeared at the event, which cost guests $50,000. Not only that, but the cast of Arnold’s upcoming Netflix program, FUBAR, was there as well.
Arnold and the After-School All-Stars program recently assisted in the launch of a school program in Uvalde, Texas, at the city’s request; the launch of the program was completed in just 45 days.
