Andy was trying to be a model, and getting in shape was important to him. He installed this little gym at the 860 Broadway factory, and hired Lydiia Senjac to be his personal trainer. Lydiia went on to establish her own gym, Soho Fitness. 

Christopher Makos was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, grew up in California, and moved to New York after high school. He studied architecture in Paris and briefly worked as an apprentice to Man Ray. Andy Warhol, Makos’ good friend and frequent portrait subject, called Makos “the most modern photographer in America.” His photographs have been exhibited in galleries and museums such as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the Tate Modern in London, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the IVAM in Valencia (Spain), and the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, and they have appeared in magazines and newspapers including Paris Match and The Wall Street Journal. He has also written several influential books, such as Warhol/Makos In Context (2007), Andy Warhol China 1982 (2007) and Christopher Makos Polaroids (2009).
