    Camden Crane - Finding transformation in Ethiopia and bringing it back home.

    From trial to bike, pool, studio, or weights, Camden Crane is not new to the fitness world. Trained early on in the competitive world of dance and soccer, she constantly works for peak strength and mobility. As a Personal Trainer she’s committed to empowering her clients to set personal and challenging goals to achieve their own peaks, focusing on the whole body, mind, and soul connection. Living in Ethiopia for 4 years working with street kids, Camden witnessed the transformation that happened when we use fitness to connect, build and thrive! 
    Camden is certified by The National Academy of Sports Medicine, specializing in athletic performance and corrective exercise and runs her own coaching business C3Fit. The 3 stands both for Camden Crane Coaching and Body, Heart, Mind as she feels it is critical to approach each person holistically.  She has also received certifications as a Fitness Nutrition Specialist, TRX coach, Optimize Coach, a Spartan SGX specialist, and recently became the BOSU® Personal Trainer of the Year. She trains with diverse populations including adolescents, athletes, seniors, and individuals suffering from obesity. She believes that a strong core and correct form is foundational to all physical activity, spinal and joint health, and muscle performance. Camden utilizes various methods, including Resistance Training, TRX, and High Intensity Interval Training technique, to develop her clients' core strength for a range of purposes. Whether athletic enhancement, the next weight at the gym or day-to-day physical endurance, Camden has you set to reach your ultimate best!

    To her clients Camden is also known as Wonder Woman as she battles an auto-immune system disease and has a pacemaker nicknamed The Wonder Pulse, but still kicks it in the gym and maintains a positive attitude despite her circumstances. The motto she lives by is OMMS – Obstacles Make Me Stronger. She attributes her success to her ability to empathize and have compassion for her clients.
    Additionally, Camden believes the best training is educational: "Every individual has the right to understand the way their body operates. It’s my job to guide and coach my clients in this.” She works with her client’s to teach them about the mechanics of their bodies, the positive impacts of training, and preventative strategies necessary to protect themselves from injury. And most of all -she believes training should feel both empowering and fun!!

    Teddy Bedjakian - Tough kid turned restaurateur.

    Teddy Bedjakian - Tough kid turned restaurateur.

    Teddy Bedjakian is the restaurateur of Edwin Mills by Equator located in Old Pasadena. Teddy started at that location back when it was known as Equator Coffee House. He was the one who decided to rebrand, and thus rename, the cafe in order to survive and thrive against the competition between coffee shops during 2014. Surviving and thriving has been a part of Teddy's life since he was young. His family immigrated to the US when he was 7 years old from Armenia where they were being targeted. Growing up Teddy describes himself as a tough kid, from living in a tough neighborhood during the time when Pasadena was not the prime place to hang out.

    Currently Teddy has brought life back to the alley where his restaurant resides in Old Pasadena, while going through all the difficulties the pandemic has presented to him. He enjoys bringing the history of Pasadena, particularly the building that houses his restaurant, to the awareness of all who visit his establishment.
