PFit has a huge array of cardio machines and high end resistance training technology. The staff is very friendly and do their best to help if I ever have any questions. The equipment is super clean and there isnt ever too many people at once, which makes me feel like I am working out in a private club. This is one of the best gyms I've ever had a membership with and would recommend it to people of all ages.
Think twice about signing up here... – I really enjoyed this gym for the last 1.5 years until I went to cancel. That's when the s--t hit the fan. It pains me to write the following, but it is what it is...
When I called, the front desk girl named Andrea told me I had a 30-day cancellation requirement, and since my payment was automated to charge my credit card on the 4th of each month (and it is March 10th today) I would still have to pay for April. I said fine -- I paid first and LAST MONTH when I started, so just apply the last month to April. Makes sense, right? Nope. Not for Andrea.
Andrea went on to tell me that NOT ONLY were they going charge my credit card for April, because I failed to give 30 days notice, but they would ALSO keep the last month in payment (effectively making me pay for May also). Frustrated with Andrea's inability to do basic math, I asked to speak with a manager.
Andrea first told me the other managers were on the phone and I would have to hold. Then she comes back and tells me the other managers aren't there. I pressed her and calmly said, "Andrea, because I know for a fact you are incorrect, I'm going to need to speak with a manager." She goes, "No, I'm not going to pass you to a manager because they will just tell you what I've just told you."
It is not Andrea's fault that she didn't pay attention in 3rd grade math, but the fact that she had just just LIED TO ME, telling me that a manager wasn't there, then decided to change her story and refuse to pass me to a manager, took it to a whole other level. When there is a clear accounting dispute, wouldn't it make sense to let the customer speak to a manager?! I'm so confused. I asked to speak to a manager about 7 more times, but no go. SHE WOULDN'T DO IT. She kept saying something about the contract even though I was not disputing that the contract required 30 days notice. SO FRUSTRATING.
Needless to say, there will be a call to the owner on Monday, but you get one star P-Fit. When you have 2 managers there who are refusing to talk to a customer over an accounting issue, and a front desk person who outright lies to your customers, you have a problem.
Best Gym in LA! – Listen, if you are into fitness in an impeccably clean environment with great machines and literally NEVER a wait then this is your gym. The staff are top notch and it's the first gym (I've had memberships at Equinox as well as Gold's) that makes me want to come back again and again. Also, plenty of easy parking and the men's locker room is great and the showers are military clean (I didn't say spa clean because spa's are somewhat dirty). My only concern is that this well kept secret will become a hot spot on the Westside. Top notch facility!
Gym – A little on the dirty side, but i really enjoyed the fact it was fairly empty.
By far the Best Gym I ever worked out at! – Why I like it so much is, my time is very valuable and at other Clubs it was costing me too much time to find parking and once I did then I usually had to wait to use the cardio or a weight machine. Not at Club P-fit, there is always plenty of free parking avail. and I've never waited, ever, for any machine not even at peak times!
Everything is so new too! The machines are super smooth and use this smart-key to guide you through a workout, that's really cool. Plus, all of the cardio machines are clean and oh, get this, have like 40 channels of directv built right in so I watch my own shows including some guilty pleasures like reality tv
when I workout.
Also, not only is everyone super friendly, but extremely knowledgeable. It seems like I may have never done an exercise right before, until I started here. It was obvious right away watching everyone else performing their exercises so meticulously I knew I needed help. And wow! thanks to their trainers, my workouts are actually working!
If you want a no nonsense place to get an efficient and super effective workout, try this friendly, knowledgeable and super clean place and see for yourself. Grab a free pass from their website and maybe I'll see you there!
I recommend that sport center – Hi I am George from Spain. I spent 2 weeks in Venice on November 2009 and I was looking for a fitness center near my hostel. I like very much to train and be fit and if I miss a trainday I am sad and angry with myself. During 2 weeks I trained at personally fit, that place owns very good and modern facilities, if somebody does not get strong or fit it is because he does not want, fitness center offers you all the possibilities ways.
Staff was very kind, friendly and warm, they like to talk with people who trains. Inside there was a nice atmosphere. When I came back to venice I will join again that fitness center.
I recommend it, it will not disapoint you. Why don't you try it?
Best Gym On The Westside – An elitist NYSC member transplanted to LA I sampled every gym from Sepulveda to Speedway. LA Sports Club, Bodies in Motion, Ballys, 24 Hr Fitness and even muscle beach. In Venice, Gold's seems like the natural choice (it groomed our governor afterall). However, after a brief stint in that over-crowded, undercleaned ego-machine, I found the gym I was looking for. P FIT on Lincoln Boulevard.
The highly personalized attention from expert staff has revolutionized my relationship to fitness. Kevin, Brian, Carl and Michael are the first to congratulate me on a workout well done, but more specifically notice if (when) I cut a few reps, or minutes of cardio.
For goal-driven individuals, the techno-fit equipment is unparalleled. Upon membership you are given a "Key" that keeps track of calories burned, miles ran and weights lifted. Each machine remembers your personal settings and records your progress and performance.
If a more personal approach is what you seek, training sessions with expert advisors will get you red carpet (reunion, date, summer) ready in NO time (these guys DONT mess around!).
If the aforementioned gushing testimonial isn't enough to at least peek your interest, the three total deal breakers for me were:
1)Cost (monthly rates breakdown to less than a latte a day)
2) Treadmill/Elliptical Availability (I've never ONCE waited, nor been asked to evacuate any cardio equipment)
3) Amble parking (When I have an hour in the morning, I have an hour, not an hour + another 20 minutes to find parking).
You can be in and out w/ 500 calories burned and a pat on the back before your friend at Gold's has found a spot and scored a stairclimber!
I love this gym – I used a few trial passes at other local gyms and was pretty disappointed. When I found P-Fit I knew immediately that my search was over. The cost is higher than the other gyms but worth every penny because I now go 6 days a week. I am pretty new to working out in a gym and was initially fearful that I would be intimidated but that never happened here. During my free training sessions, Carl taught me how to properly use all the equipment and customized a workout plan for me that I could change and update as I progressed. And the little smart key totally keeps me from cheating on my reps! Another small detail that I like is that it is not a meat market. I can walk in, put on my ipod and focus on my workout without interruptions and small talk.
Awesome Fitness Center – Club P-Fit is the best gym I ever joined. I actually hate working out but this gym made it fun! Everything is customized there. When you join you receive a smart key that has your personal workout saved on it. It is like having your own personal trainer at each workout.
The gym itself it is not crowed like many other LA gyms. Also each cardio machine has a personal TV and music system so you can watch your favorite program or listen to your favorite tunes while working out.
The staff is friendly and helpful as well. It is a great place to keep in shape!
The Best Gym in Venice – The friendly staff, excellent modern cutting edge workout equipment, a variety of classes (from bodysculpting to yoga). Super clean showers and locker rooms, great parking.
I have been a previous member of Bally's, 24 hour Fitness and Crunch, and because of my business I am an active member at World's Gym in Palm Springs and New York as well.
It took me a while to find the right gym that fits all my needs. Clup P-fit is the best and by far my most favorite place to work out.
