Fitness and Supplement Experts to Speak Sept. 14 in San Marino

Pat Brown, founder of The Pat Brown System, and local trainer Matt Castaneda, will share ways to overcome fitness obstacles through diet, exercise, and supplementation, in a free seminar in San Marino on September 14.

Pat Brown, a trainer in the Bakersfield area for nearly 25 years, has developed a diet that is high in protein, low in carbohydrates, and calls for small portions spread out evenly through the day. He has also created a series of supplements that he says help people burn more fat, have more energy, and feel full. Hell present his system at the event.

Matt Castaneda, a native of South Pasadena, has found that the Pat Brown System worked for him personally, as well as his clients.A lot of people are not familiar with supplementation and what it can do. Well provide before-and-after photos. Pats approach is particularly helpful for people whose fitness is at a plateau, or who need a lifestyle change.

Matt says hes excited about introducing Brown and his approach to the San Gabriel Valley.I want to put our county on the map for being healthy. Right now, were not known for fitness. I would like more local people to put down the bad foods and the bad habits, and start exercising and eating right.

The seminar will be held at Mission Fitness Center, 2451 Mission Street, San Marino, 91108, on Saturday, September 14, from 3:30 to 4:30 pm. There will be light refreshments. Admission is free, but reservations are required. To reserve a space, email

"Our goal is to make smart instruments that can do more within each command cycle," says David Thompson of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.


TextureCam would take a 3D picture of the rock using stereo cameras. A processor, not linked to the rover's main computer, would then scan the picture for textures, allowing the machine to figure out the difference between rocks, sand and the background sky.

Big step.
