    California's Gold [#1007] Muscle Beach It was one of the most famous addresses in the US from 1934 to 1959. It's not a house, but a small plot of land in Santa Monica. Muscle Beach started as a WPA project in 1934 and helped spawn the modern fitness movement that lives on today. The original Muscle Beach was a plot of sand just south of Santa Monica Pier. In the beginning it wasn't about muscles, it was about fitness and fun. Men and women did somersaults and handstands, built human towers and threw each other around. Huell and Luis go back to the original plot of sand to visit with some of the men and women who made Muscle Beach their playground during its heyday, and talk with the group of people who are bringing back the original Muscle Beach in it's original spot today. The new Muscle Beach will have the old emphasis of fitness and fun. duration 27:21
