Meet Our Fantastic Team

Dr. Claude Matar


Dr. Claude Matar founded Pasadena Weight Loss Center in 1996. He received his MD in 1986 and became board certified in naturopathic medicine and a clinical nutritionist 1998. Instead of practicing western or eastern medicine, his research into the underlying cause of illness and disease lead to the development of a completely natural and highly effective longevity protocol for men and women over 50, through patient lifestyle education. For over two decades, most clients have been reversing chronic disease, reducing or eliminating their meds and, of course, achieving optimum weight and body composition with what he then termed: the FIT50 longevity program.

Rawaa Matar

Rawaa is the Program Coordinator and has a Masters in Business Administration. Also a Bachelor of Science and Associates Degree in Applied Science. Her favorite time spent is with Bella (her dog). She enjoys cooking & eating healthy food.

Mike Kabajouzian

I graduated from Cal State University, Northridge with a bachelor's degree in kinesiology exercise science. During my time in school, I and my classmates helped manage a school fitness program called 3 Wins Fitness, which provided free fitness service to the community. I also volunteered at multiple physical therapy clinics and helped patients recover their functional movements. Aside from helping patients and fitness clients, I volunteered as a basketball coach for a youth team at a Pasadena non-profit organization for a few years.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and I run a non-profit called Next Up Foundation where I help underserved L.A. youth unlock their true potential in the wonderful world of skateboarding. I’ve been in the fitness industry for over six years and have served over 20,000 PT sessions.
