The Pit is getting a makeover!
Thank goodness! Perhaps the most famous attraction in Venice, the outdoor weight pen at Muscle Beach, has been in a sad state of disrepair for years.
But now all that is in the past the Pit is gonna be brand spanking new and shiny. That’s right, a literal boat load of specially made, stainless steel, rust proof, out door gym equipment is on the way to Venice.
It is our understanding this project is being funded by a generous donation from ThermoLife International and Muscle Beach Nutrition in conjunction with the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks.
Most likely the project will take all summer and the Pit will reopen around Labor day. The annual body building shows on the Fourth of July and Labor Day will continue as usual.
Check out some photos of the project from our friends at Muscle Beach Nutrition
