All of our lives Casey and I have been athletes, participating in high school and college athletics. Casey in fact was a Division 1 Volleyball player until she broke her back. Through the rehab and the years since her accident, she noticed her body changing in a way that didn't make her happy. She was in many cases unable to perform various exercises as she used to and when she was able to workout, it was at a level that didn't produce results. This left her disappointed and depressed to say the least, as well as 40 pounds heavier. As for me, as I've aged and gotten a real job (one in which I work 15 hours/day) I noticed that I was unable to get to the gym as often as I used to. I began to eat a ton of fast food due to its convenience, and as a result, I noticed that my physique had changed drastically. I had back fat and a pot belly and was starting to look like all of those other 30 something men I see everywhere, with their bellies hanging over their belts. This was unacceptable for us both; we decided to seek help, which is what led us to Jason Kozma. Jason sat down with us, went through our daily routines and meals and taught us about the nutrition mistakes that we were making, which ultimately was keeping us from our goals. He also referred us one of his trainers (Mike) in Hollywood near our home. Mike was extremely knowledgeable about muscle building as well as helping Casey with her injury rehab. Mike worked with each of us independently to develop a personalized training routine that combined muscle fatigue/confusion with the correct types of cardio needed to attain our goals.
In the end:
Casey has lost over 43 pounds, going from 182 to 138, she has lost 13% body fat going from 29% to 16%. She has thrown away almost 99% of the clothes in her closet and has had to go shopping for new sexy and trendy clothes (skinny jeans, tight dresses and shorts etc). But best of all, her back is no longer weak and doesn't plague her; she now carries her head high both in confidence and pride. She has completed a course that not many have the internal fortitude to even start, let alone finish. In that journey, she has realized that it was not a course or a diet or a routine that helped her accomplish her goals, but in fact, it was the decision to make a life change. Thanks to Jason and Mike she now has the tools to look great and be healthy for the rest of her life.
Wil has lost 22 pounds, going from 182 to 160; he lost 8% body fat going from 14% to <6%. He also had to clean out his closet, get suits and pants taken in. When he started his training with Jason and Mike, he wanted to lean down, loose his muffin top and get his abs back. What Wil gained in the end was a wealth of knowledge about nutrition, muscle development/maintenance and many other facets of maintaining a healthier, stronger and more visually appealing body.
The bottom Line:
Lets face it, if you're reading this testimonial you have most likely found your way to Jason's website because you are not currently happy with the way you look and feel physically. At the very most basic level we all want to look and feel good not just for ourselves, but also for our loved ones. By teaming up with Jason and making the commitment to trust him, you make the first step to realizing a new you, both physically and emotionally. If we can do it so can you!!
