Arnold Schwarzenegger has returned to Gold's Gym!

The 66-year-old former bodybuilder recently returned to his old training ground, Gold's Gym in Venice, Calif., to film a funny video for a good cause.

In the clip, which promotes the After-School All-Stars mentorship and activities program for low-income families, Schwarzenegger disguises himself in a black wig, fake black mustache and black baseball cap before walking through the gym to prank members. "Basically, I'm going to play Howard, a physical fitness instructor who has become a regional manager for Gold's Gym," the actor says in the video clip.

Needless to say, Schwarzenegger's unmistakable accent gives him away.

"Hi, how's it going? How many miles you running?" he asks one woman on a treadmill before she stops, takes a second to recognize him and gushes, "Oh my God. Hi!"

Schwarzenegger yells jokingly at another member, "Stop being a baby. This is Gold's Gym, not a baby gym." He also takes time to stop and pats one man's forehead with a towel.

At the end of the vid, Schwarzenegger stops to admire a mounted throwback photo of himself in the lobby of the gym, saying, "He looks so good. So handsome."


Back in the 1970s, Schwarzenegger trained at the Gold's Gym in Venice after moving to the U.S. from Austria at the age of 21.

Watch the funny prank video for yourself.
