The rich sunny-boy Craig Blake is brought in by the syndicate as a dummy to buy the gym. But then he starts to like the people and falls in love with Joe's friend Mary Tate. Written by Tom Zoerner

Trivia Jeff Bridges recalled a cut workout scene, in which he was doing toe raises, and Arnold Schwarzenegger was riding on his back for weight.
