I'm finding it really hard to find PLers or a PL gym in LA (Westwood area). Any advice how to find them?

Thanks bros.

Whoa, look what I found:

Gym Name: Fitness Individualized Training (FIT)
Owner/Manager: Scot Mendelson
Address: 13752 Ventura Blvd.
City: Sherman Oaks
State/Province/Country: CA
Zip: 91423
Phone Number: (818) 781-8643
Email: mendy1000@sbcglobal.net
Website: www.scotmendelson.net/FIT.html


I wonder if they'll take up a greenhorn like me. Are most PLing gyms open to the public, or do you have to be invited in somehow?

I was looking for that not too long ago. I think it is a fitness club, that just happens to have Big Mendy as the owner. His is open to the public. We should email him :evillaugh

Thanks Big$, found 2 by work and 1 by the house.

Dude, totally! That'd be cool. I found the gym on the PLWatch site that bigmoney put up, so hopefully it's a PL gym (not just a fitness one).

Where in LA are you from Doug? I go back to school (UCLA) at late Sept, so I'll email him then. :thumbup:

I am in the OC, but he is such a respected PLer I have always been tempted to drive up there and have him help improve my form.

I would think Mendy would allow powerlifting at that gym... considering his own credentials :).
