The former governor of California has lived a very exciting life, as new details of his past keep coming to the public eye. For example, when Arnold was a young boy in Austria, his father was a cop, and he wanted Arnold to become involved with the military. However, after Arnold had seen a bodybuilding magazine for the first time, he knew that he wanted to live a life of body building over military service.
One day, Arnold decided to sneak away from his base and enter in a bodybuilding competition. When he returned, his supervisors were waiting for him. When he explained himself and said he had won the competition, he was given 3 hours a day to workout and train for more bodybuilding competitions.
If his supervisors weren't as understanding, surely Arnold wouldn't have become the internationally recognized super macho action movie star, and later the governor of California.
