PayanX gets endorsement from NewSantaAna



The New Santa Ana blog is probably the biggest critic of Payan X, the free early morning get-in-shape bootcamp run by Marc Payan.  The blog has previous cited noise complaints, asked questions about insurance and has been critical in general because two Santa Ana council members the blog is exceptionally critical of — David Benavides and Michele Martinez — are regulars at 5AM.

When blog owner Art Pedroza needed a way to get in shape, he started showing up to sweat it out and Pedroza has achieved some spectacular results.

Here’s Pedroza before:



And here he is after 4 months of Payan X:

Pedroza after

“I have to admit, Art was really out of shape when he started,” said Benavides.  “I used to hold his feet when he did situps and he broke wind every time his elbows touched his knees.  I asked him what’d he been eating and he just grunted and then there’d be these awful comments about me on his blog.”

“Its hard to believe he has those six pack abs now,” said Martinez.  “We keep telling Sal (Mayor Pro Tem Sal Tinajero), ‘If Art can do it, you can too’.”

“It’s all about diet and exercise,” said Payan.  “If you want a body from Payan X, you need to come to the workouts.  Otherwise, you get a body from Taco Bell, and who wants that?”

    The day Payan X starts giving out free donuts is the day Sal Tinajero starts showing up.

    I’m pretty sure this is the guy I called the SAPD on after I caught him lurking in the bushes taking pictures of children in the play area. I shouted at him and he scurried away with a mangy looking little dog.
