BEING DISCOVERED AT A VIC TANNY'S GYM

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY       2013


     Vic Tanny Gyms were a part of life in the San Fernando Valley until they were sold to the Bally fitness chain.  Tanny overcame the stigma of a gym being a place for body building wonks, to include dressing rooms for women, aerobics equipment and other amenities. Besides health benefits, who know? One just might be discovered for a beach-blanket movie.

Bally's has since been purchased by LA Fitness, who then closed all of Bally's gyms, to avoid the competition they provided.
