Arnold Schwarzenegger Goes Incognito to Support After-School Program

Arnold Schwarzenegger recently got back to his bodybuilding roots by posing as a trainer for Gold's Gym to support an after-school program that he founded.

The "Terminator" star filmed the bit to promote his involvement with After-School All-Stars, a nationwide program that provides comprehensive after-school services to low-income, at-risk youth.

Anyone that donates $10 or more to the organization will have a chance to win a day of a lifetime with the Governator. The winner, plus a guest, will fly to Los Angeles to ride in a Sherman tank with Schwarzenegger, smoke cigars with him, and pump some iron with him, too. In short, it's every bro's dream.

Schwarzenegger debuted the contest and video on Tuesday while participating in an Ask Me Anything thread on Reddit. He promoted the contest by saying, "You'll earn the chance to fly to L.A. from anywhere in the world to ride a tank and crush things together."

As covered on the Time and Learning blog last November, Schwarzenegger has rallied behind after-school programs for over a decade. Last fall, he visited Capitol Hill to advocate for preventing federal money from getting diverted from after-school programs.
