Vince's Gym in 2014

David Gironda, Sr reports that ALL of Vince Gironda's equipment, intact and oiled, two dozen or more of his pictures, his belts, front awning and other original items from the gym have been preserved by a confidential friend of Vince.

There is a deal in the works to make them available to view, and perhaps set up as a replica gym for special training, sometime in the future. Stay tuned, but in the meantime, posted are some photos to enjoy.

David writes; "What's amazing is that as old as the pieces are, none of them are obsolete. They may not be as easy to set up and work as modern equipment, but their effects are the same as they were for the notable people that used them. To think the beautiful patina on them is the result of the handling by all those who used them, they are like relics of the stars."

I trained at Vince's in the 1990's, and I am glad to see the equipment is in good hands.

Just stumbled onto this. Wow, I designed a piece of equipment and built it for Vince. Circa 1985ish it was a leg curl, standing: to simulate standing iron boot movements. Is it there, and can I come visit the gym I live in So. Cal. Starkie ps many friends would love to come as well.
