Mr. Natural Olympia And The Iron Guru

From our photo shoot, my friend John Hansen featured in the book “Vince’s Secret Locker” by Karl Coyne. The story of the “Iron Guru” from the Golden Age of Bodybuilding, Vince Gironda. Vince’s Gym was central to the world of bodybuilding and among the people you could find in that gym in North Hollywood were Cher, Denzel Washington, Clint Eastwood, and James Garner. Vince Gironda will be posthumously inducted into the real Muscle Beach Hall Of Fame on Labor Day this year on September 5th.

John Hansen himself a legend in the world of bodybuilding, the very first Mr. Natural Olympia. Recognized as an eminent bodybuilder and historian of the world of bodybuilder.
