Vince Gironda discusses steroids and why he was always against their usage. The natural way is the only way!
Vince’s Gym 11262 Ventura Boulevard, Studio City, CA. No Pool, No Music, No Chrome, Just Iron
Sitting forlornly in some unused corner of the gym unwanted and ignored is the preacher bench, sometimes known as the Scott bench.
Insofar as I am concerned, I have never observed the preacher bench being used correctly.
It was my pleasure and privilege to know Vince Gironda for 45 years.
I trained for twenty years until I recently discovered that I make better progress and faster gains by not overworking. I do less sets and exercises now, but everything I do works my muscles to the maximum.
Vince Gironda opened his gym in Studio City, California in 1948. Fifty years later in 1998, Daryl Conant opened his own gym in Kennebunk.
In memory of Ron Kosloff, my good friend and teacher who sadly passed away in 2019.
Freddy Ortiz began his illustrious bodybuilding career in 1957 upon arriving in America from his homeland, Puerto Rico.
Vince Gironda has trained winners of every bodybuilding title in existence, from Mr. Los Angeles competitors to Mr. Olympia.
In anticipation of Vince’s 80th birthday, John Balik organised an event to honour him and his life’s work, at the prestigious Ritz Carlton Hotel in Marina del Rey.
