Arnold Schwarzenegger is working on making his film comeback after his term as governor of California has ended, and now he’s taking on another gig.
The action star has taken on the role as executive editor of Muscle & Fitness and Flex magazines, American Media Inc. has announced this past Friday. He has been on the cover more than 60 times.
"It was in these magazines that I found the spark that inspired me to start lifting weights, and eventually move to America and realize my dreams, and I'm proud to return as executive editor," he said
According to the LA Times, Schwarzenegger knows a thing or two about fitness, being named Mr. Olympia seven times.
In 2003, he became governor and he also took the editor job back then. However, he stepped down after it was deemed a conflict of interest. He was making about $1 million a year serving as editor of a magazine that relied heavily on dietary ads but his job as governor required him to regulate the industry.
“Bodybuilding has always been part of my life, and I know Muscle & Fitness and Flex will continue to motivate others - as it did me - to lift weights and lead a healthy lifestyle, promote the sport of bodybuilding, and, as Joe used to say in every issue, 'exceed themselves,'" he said, The Huffington Post reports.
