These are some out takes from my HOUSE of GOLD project for Los Angeles Magazine. There are more posted on my site. Gold’s Gym Venice-The Mecca. Its the most amazing place. Last summer during the Olympics, they had a board in the lobby with a medal count for the members of that gym. It was more than most countries. I see action movie stars in there all the time. Robert Downey, Sarsgaard, Mickey Rourke and that crowd. Mike Tyson is there early in the morning. Gabby Reese and Laird are there in the summers. Its wack. No matter how crazy you think your workout is, there is somebody like Apollo Ono doing something that seems humanly impossible.
Anyway, Google bought the building and it is unsure how long this scene is going to be around. Thus the magazine piece.
Massive thanks to LA Mag, Golds Gym management and all the amazing athletes who so generously gave their time.
