I love my Equinox in Pasadena! Im sorry for the experience one of the reviewers had at this Equinox, and I have to say that as a member who is able to access all the Equinox gyms in L.A., his truths dont seem accurate at all. \r
The trainers at this one happen to be the friendliest out of all the clubs Ive been to (i.e. West Hollywood, Santa Monica, and the one on Wilshire Blvd). They even have this really nice guy who seems to know everybody I think hes the training director who also happens to be in amazing shape. I've seen him work out and teach some of the classes, and it's very inspiring to watch him at work. The staff at the welcome desk are just friendly as can be, and I know this because I visit at various times of the day. As far as the facility goes, I wouldnt say it is low-quality, I just know that it was the first one built in California, and that it was meant to be of that size, as was explained to me by one of the sales people. \r
I much prefer this gyms lay-out over all the other Equinox clubs. Lastly, Im sure that the billing issue he noted is valid for him. Having had his experience, he deserves to be let out. Im having quite the opposite experience, Im happy to say, so theres no need to worry about paying my monthly dues theyre worth it! I can't think of a better gym in the area that is as upscale, friendly, and professional as this one.
