A friend recommended Pro Fitness and their semi-personal training program to me. I've had gym memberships before and simply never show up. Personal training is way too expensive. The semi-personal they offer is a perfect marriage between the two. Somebody's counting on me to show up (social pressure) so I actually go and it's nowhere near as expensive as personal training. I've recently tried massage there as well. Hannah is very good. She's a fantastic masseuse.
AWESOME MYOFASCIAL RELEASE MASSAGE! – I was in Pasadena for a few weeks of study leave and in desperate need of massage therapy. I found Pro Fitness through a web search and scheduled a series of three massages with Margie Dellinger. What a blessing this was! She worked on my problem foot/ankle (plantar fasciatis) as well as my over-worked neck/shoulders/chest area (months slumped over a computer). What bliss! A worthwhile investment in my own well-being. I highly recommend Margie-- friendly, knowledgeable, encouraging and very good at her craft!
Great place to work out and great personal trainer! – Carina is an awesome person to work with. Tough and sweet and even though it is hard at times I keep wanting to come back. My butt looks great!!! I highly recommend this place and her clients are really fun people as well. You will love the results!
Great studio! – I have been working out at Pro Fitness network for about 3 years with Carina Weston, the owner. Aside from being a trainer, she is also a great person to know and makes you feel like more of a friend rather than a client. As a young student I am unable to spend too much on the gym. But at Pro Fitness you can have a semi personal training session at only $30 an hour. Carina is great at meeting the needs of her clients even when there are multiple people working out. She has sculpted my body amazingly and I would not reccomend anyone else. I have also taken pilates with Maria and I have gotten a massage as well--which were both better than I have had anywhere else, and at an extremely great price. The facilities in the 3 studios are all nice and clean. Like many people, I am quite intimidated by gyms, but the clients and instructors at Pro Fitness Network make you feel like you're working out in the comfort of your own home.

Great place to rejuvenate!! – I’m 50 years old and never felt at home in a gym. Three painful years after an injury, I knew I needed to lose weight and strengthen my lower-back. But exercise was too scary. My muscles got weaker and weaker. Finally, I tried one trainer, then another. My back went out with both. Desperate, I went to Carina to see if she could help. After she told me about her injury and I saw how strong she is, I trusted her to know what was safe, and what wasn’t. I’ve strength-trained with Carina three times a week, for six months, without re-injuring my back. I’m in much better shape, stronger and have more energy than I’ve had in years. For the first time in my life, when I don’t go to the gym, I miss the exercise and the atmosphere---it’s amazing. It’s like getting together with friends. P.S. Now, I go to Pro Fitness five times a week! I work with the nutritionist, Julia, and use the Bodybugg to be more aware of my eating habits. I get massages from Nora. And I do Pilates with Maria -- all in one great place!
A gem of a gym – I've been working with Carina since June 2008 and have been nothing but delighted with my experience at Pro Fitness. Carina is a dedicated and professional trainer; equal parts inspiration and task-master. Like in most fitness endeavors, you get what you put into it.... but, this intimate, friendly and encouraging atmosphere is a pleasure to be in. The appointment-only system is a great motivator and the "semi-personal" attention is miles above going it alone, and at a very reasonable price. You train with other like-minded regular folks and work with professionals who are knowledgeable and up-to-date on the latest in fitness and nutrition. I was initially concerned that I may feel intimidated in such a setting, but my concerns were absolutely groundless. This is a well-maintained, albeit small operation, for anyone looking to improve or maintain their fitness level. Highly recommend.
Great place to work out and affordable!!! – I have been working out at Pro Fitness Network for almost 2 years now. I have semi-personal training sessions (these sessions are 1 hour workouts for approx. $30/hr) with Carina Weston, who is also the owner. Before working out at Pro Fitness Network, I had never been to a personal trainer and was intimidated going to one. But after my first session with Carina, I felt very comfortable. Carina is a great personal trainer and designs the workouts specific to my needs. She is very passionate about her job and has been a positive influence on my attitude towards exercise and health. After working out with Carina, I feel stronger and more energized. I really like working out at Pro Fitness Network because I feel good after each workout and I have met a lot of friendly people. If I had more time, I would love to try the other services that Pro Fitness Network offers, such as Massage, Reflexology, Acupuncture, and Pilates.
Great Value for Personal Fitness Attention – I've been going to Pro Fitness Network for almost 2 years now and have been very happy with it. What I like is that they offer hour long semi-personal training sessions at $30 hour. My trainer is the owner, Carina Weston, who is great. She develops a program tailored to your ability and goals and you get the personal attention of a trainer for a great price. The semi-personal training sessions you share with usually about 2-3 other people. The other people you work out with are great too. It is very low key and chill. I have also gotten a massage there with Nora. She is very good and the price is lower than you would pay at Burke Williams or other day spas. I would highly recommend Pro Fitness Network. I have always been the kind of person intimidated by gyms but this was a great option for me to get more fit in a relaxed environment. Plus they have a great variety of services.
Best place to get fit! – Carina Weston is more than just a great personal trainer. She loves her work and it shows. Her cheerful outlook, affirmative guidance and thorough knowledge are an inspiration to everyone who knows her. She wisely sees through the fads and passing trends to focus on building core strength and real life-long fitness. There are no gimmicks or shortcuts here, but good solid wisdom and understanding of what it takes to be truly fit. The small group setting (semi-personal training) is very welcoming and supportive and allows her to give personal attention to everyone while charging a fraction of the cost of one to one training. The setting is clean and conveniently located in Pasadena. The equipment is professional and well maintained. Within weeks of starting there my back pain was gone and now I've lost 35 lbs. I'm in the best shape of my life. Thanks, Carina!
BEST IN TOWN – Carina has been a huge motivator in my life, not only with training but in life issues. She is a warm, kind and loving person. Training with Carina was always fun, yet stretched my abilities to be more than I thought. She works with you, she guides you and gets results. Pro Fitness Network has many talented people on their staff. Their dedication to health, nutrition and training is impeccable. They are a wonderful group of individuals. I thank Pro Fitness Staff and Carina for their dedication to their profession and passion. Debbie S.
