PF Alhambra is a tidy, affordable gym with neat lockers, huge parking lot, free pizza and tootsie roll. LoL. Staff (Mark and co.) are competent, friendly and professional. They should be given a raise! Because they are always dependable. PF is without flaws, the things I abhor is when the machines are out of service, artic blasting A/C on the far back end and the crowded peak hours (M-W; 6pm), however, not as terrible compared to PF Mid-town Olympic blvd branch.The gym goers are friendly, nice and respectful. Similarly, there are good looking fit women in this gym which kinda motivating. Overall, I highly recommend this gym. I can suggest they add more new machines or install a wall pull up bars like most gym do. I would like to make it happen.
