In 1968, Arnie moved to the United States to further his bodybuilding career, but was faced with the obstacle of barely speaking any English. He used his bodybuilding winnings to fund English lessons at Santa Monica College, and later obtained a degree in international marketing of fitness and business administration in 1979 from the University of Wisconsin-Superior. During his early years in the States, he won almost everything it's possible for a bodybuilder to win. He also became something of an entrepreneuer, earning a small fortune in the real estate business.
