Well before her time, screen legend Marilyn Monroe was reported to have always maintained a regime of weightlifting and regular exercise. Visitors reported finding gym equipment in the corner of her living room. At a time before running was a popular for exercise, let alone for women, Marilyn is said to have regularly partaken in early morning jogs through the back streets of Beverly Hills. Marilyn Monroe was 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighed 128 pounds.

    When Marathon Olympic Gold Medalist Joan Benoit started running in the early 1970s, if a car came along she would stop running and pretend she was out for a walk and looking at the flowers or something. She didn’t want to be seen doing something that women didn’t do.

    Interesting idbit thanks :-)

    You know, I must be an idiot, as I never knew women didn’t run back then until I did this post? Makes sense and stands to reason now I think of it.

    The picture of Marilyn on the weight bench puts it all in perspective. Hollywood ‘bombshell’ or not, she had to workout like the rest of us. Noone can do it for you. The women of Hollywood(Bo Derek et al.) have always had the gym, and weight training, as their secret resource for being in shape. With the properly honed physique, just adding the Hollywood touch (promotion and presentation) transforms ‘the girl next door’ into the Hollywood icon of our dreams, whether Marilyn, Bo or Jennifer Aniston…
