Rudy Smith and the Smith Machine
You've heard of the Smith Machine?  Well here's 'Smith' as in Rudy Smith who came up with his machine in the early 1950's as a manager at Vic Tanny's Gym in Los Angeles, California.  Today a Smith machine can be found in just about every gym in the land.  In the picture above, Rudy is sitting on the very first Smith machine ever.
