Arnold Schwarzenegger Gold's Gym Prank Raises Money for Charity (Video)

Arnold Schwarzenegger pranked Gold's Gym members recently in Venice, Calif., in an effort to raise money for after-school programs serving underprivileged kids.

Somewhat disguised behind a baseball cap, phony pony tail, and oversized black mustache, Schwarzenegger snuck up on unsuspecting gym members as they worked out dispensing advice to anyone who would listen.

The video, featured below, is promoted by Omaze.com, the same organization that last year offered $10 raffle tickets to dine with George Clooney for the actor’s Satellite Sentinel Project, which is devoted to monitoring war crimes in Sudan.

The muscle-bound, 66-year-old Schwarzenegger chose a fitness-related nonprofit for his charity — the After-School All-Stars, a leading national provider of year-round, school-based, comprehensive after-school programs.

After watching the video, Schwarzenegger fans are invited to donate $10 to the After-School All Stars charity through Omaze.com. The $10 gift will automatically enter the donor in a chance to win a day with the former California governor, where they will share cigars while driving around in his own Sherman tank, according to the website.

In the video, Schwarzenegger pretends to be fictional personal trainer Howard Kleiner.

Though most recognize him, some do not.

One of the first members he approaches is a woman on a stepper machine, who immediately realizes who is standing before her as he asks her in his iconic Austrian accent, "How’s it going? How many miles you running?"

"Oh my God, hi!" the woman responds.

Schwarzenegger tells another woman, "If it burns, it grows. Remember that," to which the woman responds, "You look so familiar to me."

"Maybe you saw me on the FBI’s Most Wanted List," Schwarzenegger answers.

Of course women aren’t the Terminator’s only target.

Schwarzenegger later finds a man struggling on what appears to be an elliptical and tells him to "stop being a baby, this is Gold’s Gym, not a baby gym."

The Terminator closes out the tongue-in-cheek video by admiring a black and white photo of himself flexing from his Mr. Olympia days hung on the gym wall. He is heard saying aloud, "Wow, so good, so handsome."
