Arnold Schwarzenegger went for a bike ride with his children in Santa Monica, California, on Saturday, showing his speedy recovery just over a month after undergoing heart surgery.
Arnold, 73, was spotted pedaling a fat bike with his son Patrick, 27, and daughter Christina, 29.
The former California governor wore a face mask for parts of the ride, and donned Adidas trainers, black pants, a black fleece jacket and a charcoal T-shirt with the Theodore Roosevelt quote, “Do what you can with what you have where you are.”
The action hero legend appeared in good shape after revealing on social media on October 23 that he had his aortic valve replaced at the Cleveland Clinic medical center.
In his post, he wrote, “I feel fantastic and have already been walking the streets of Cleveland enjoying your amazing statues.”
At the time, Patrick shared support for his fitness-loving father by joking, "PLEASE DONT GO WORKOUT TODAY!!”
The Terminator star, a retired professional bodybuilder, has a congenital heart defect.
In 2018, he had an operation to replace a pulmonary valve and due to complications during the “experimental” procedure, doctors had to do open heart surgery.
His’s spokesperson said his first words after the surgery were, “I’m back.”
A year later, he told The Sun that he hit the gym just a week after the procedure.
He explained: “For a minute I was worried it was too close to doing Terminator 6 (Dark Fate) but I realized right away the movie is a good means to get back into shape again.
“I was home in no time and was back to the gym in no time. Most people baby themselves too much after surgery.”
The Terminator actor had his first pulmonary valve replacement in 1997.
Photographs of Schwarzenegger and his children on Saturday showed them riding on the streets, on bike lanes and alongside the beach.
