Arnold Schwarzenegger, 76, and lookalike son Joseph Baena, 26, enjoy time during a fitness session at Gold’s Gym in Venice
Arnold Schwarzenegger and his son Joseph Baena stopped by Gold’s Gym in Venice on Friday to enjoy a productive training session together.
The Terminator star, 76, was seen arriving to the fitness center on an electric bike, while the Called To Duty actor, 26, flashed a bright smile just before joining his dad.
The former California governor wore a dark blue shirt with “Made In USA” written across the front in white letters and black shorts.
He teamed the look with a dark blue jacket that was unzipped and wore a pair of black ankle socks and slip-on shoes to complete his look for a day out.
Arnold – whose son is following in his bodybuilding footsteps – added a pair of black-rimmed sunglasses to protect his eyes under the California sun as he drove to the gym.

Baena also opted for comfort, wearing a white short-sleeved Gold’s Gym shirt and black gym shorts tied with a string around his waist.
As a finishing touch, he also opted for a pair of white ankle socks and black and white checkered shoes.
The media personality easily carried a black hoodie in his hand to wear if he got cold later in the day, and also had a smartphone in his free hand.
Joseph smiled brightly before heading outside with Schwarzenegger to use some of the equipment.
Arnold shares his son with former housekeeper Mildred Baena, with whom he had an affair during his marriage to Maria Shriver. Namely, she gave birth to Joseph in 1997.
However, fourteen years later, the truth about the affair and how he had fathered a son with Mildred came to light during a marriage counseling session with Shriver.
The housekeeper retired in 2011, the same year Maria ended her relationship with Arnold, prompting their divorce. She filed for divorce in July 2011, which was not officially finalized until ten years later, in 2021.
The former couple also share children: Katherine, 33, Christina, 31, Patrick, 30, and also Christopher, 26 – who was born just days before Joseph was welcomed into the world.
A striking pose: Earlier this month, the aspiring actor uploaded a photo of himself happily posing next to a wax figure of his father at the star’s museum in Thal, Austria
However, over the years, both Arnold and Joseph developed a close bond.
Earlier this month, the aspiring actor uploaded a photo of himself to Instagram, happily posing next to a wax figure of his father at the star’s museum in Thal, Austria.
He also follows in Schwarzenegger’s footsteps in bodybuilding and often shares photos of himself posing to show off his progress, which are similar to poses his father had also done in the past.
Last year, in January 2022, Baena stopped by the Unwaxed podcast and opened up about his relationship with the Predator star.
“I should also point out that because of my relationship with my dad, it took a while for me and him to really get close and just joke around with him and talk about anything,” he explained.
Joseph added: “I grew up with my mother and I was always nervous. And I didn’t want him to think bad of me and say, “Oh, what the hell is this guy doing? Partying all the time.”
He then revealed, “I’m so close to my dad and we joke about everything. He always wants to hear about the drama. He says, “Tell me everything! Tell me the drama. Tell me about these girls.”
The star also talked about maneuvering his own path in the entertainment industry, which his father is also involved in, after starring in blockbusters such as The Terminator franchise and Netflix’s FUBAR.

No ‘handouts’: Baena told Men’s Health last year: ‘My father is old-fashioned; he does not believe in alms. He believes that hard work pays off, and so do I.”
Baena told Men’s health last year: ‘My father is old-fashioned; he does not believe in alms. He believes hard work pays off, and so do I.”
‘I love the word honor and I have a lot of pride in the sense that when I use my father’s contacts or ask him for favors, I wonder what honor that will bring me?’
While pursuing his passions in both bodybuilding and acting, Joseph is also a real estate agent.
Regarding where he sees himself in the future, he said, “I’m an award-winning actor with a lot of real estate experience, and I’m on a boat in Miami, having a mai tai with my friends and getting ready. for the next movie.’
