A Q&A with Fitness Expert In Santa Monica Jason Kozma

Mr. America Jason Kozma at the beach
 

 

Who are you?
I’ve been the top Santa Monica personal trainer and fitness expert for over 20 years. I’m a former competitive bodybuilder and martial artist. Some of my past bodybuilding titles include first place at Mr. America, Mr. Muscle Beach, Southern States Championships, Tennessee Valley Championships, and Kentucky Derby Championships. I’m also a black belt and former instructor of Japanese Karate. I have lived a lifestyle of fitness and exercise since the age of 12.

What are your qualifications?
In addition to my bodybuilding experience and titles, I’ve been a certified personal trainer since the early 90s. I have trained hundreds of clients of every type imaginable: young, old, fit, unfit, bodybuilders, the obese, housewives, athletes, celebrities, CEOs and more. I am also a certified sports nutritionist. Check out the results of my work on my client before and after photos and client testimonials sections.

What if I don’t want to look like a bodybuilder?
I’m perfectly aware that most people do not want to look like bodybuilders. However the art and science of bodybuilding is about minimizing fatty tissue and maximizing muscle shape, strength, metabolism, and firmness. That’s what everybody is after. My training and nutrition techniques derived from bodybuilding deliver the most rapid and noticeable body transformation results anywhere. Just check out the before and after and client testimonial section of the site for examples.

What is your philosophy?
My philosophy is the client comes first. What does that mean? That means that each clients nutritional and training program is custom designed to the clients needs, desires and abilities. I am not interested in forcing your body to fit within my fitness paradigm. I am interested in getting you the results that you want as quickly as possible using the most efficient methodology available.
On the professional / business side, I also believe that consistency and reliability in your personal trainer are absolutely essential. You will get that here. Your personal trainer will not cancel or reschedule your appointments, that is the prerogative of the client, not the trainer.

Who trains with you in Santa Monica?
A types. People who know what they want and are willing to do what it takes to get there.

What is your ideal client?
Clients who train with me personally come from varied backgrounds and are at different stages of fitness, but they all share one trait: they are 100% dedicated to following my advice, training to their limits and getting the results they asked for.

I am in Santa Monica for 6 weeks from Australia and wanted to find a trainer.  I was so lucky that I found Jason Kozma on the internet and was really impressed with the photos of before and afters and the testimonials. I am 61 years old and have been to many gyms and lots of different weight loss program’s, always finding it hard to loose that weight around the middle.
I have lost 12 pounds so far, more weight over the past 3 weeks than I have after dieting for months.  I can’t believe it!!  Jason is pretty amazing. I am eating more now than what I ever did,I was always wanting to put something sweet in my mouth and now I don’t even think about it and I am never hungry.   Jason’s weight training is hard but I feel great and he is so big on technique, it has to be just right. I am getting fitter and stronger and my posture is so much better. I’m a hairdresser and always bending over people.   I feel I’m standing a lot taller and am much more aware of my body position.I will be going back to Australia a new person. Thanks Jason, I have never had a trainer who helped me so much with my eating and also putting me on to the right supplements and a training program designed for me.  Can’t wait to see myself in another 3 weeks. Jason also looked up a few gyms for me to go to when I go home.  Jason is the person to see if you want to look great,feel great and become a lot healthier.

After I suffered a tragic motorcycle accident that led to the loss of part of my leg, I was not able to work out for a little over a year. One day I realized that I needed to force myself out of the couch and back into the gym, but due to the amount of muscle atrophy, I decided to look for a personal trainer. After meeting with at least five trainers in LA, I decided to go with Jason. He understood my particular situation and adapted every single exercise to my needs. He’s the best out there, bar none.

This guy always stays at the top of his game. He is not the type of a trainer who comes and goes, if you know what I mean. He is very precise when it comes to nutritional plans (I would not call it a “diet” but rather a healthy eating). He chooses best personal trainers for his team. Specify your goals, and he will tell you in details how to achieve them.

The best!

I’ve been working with Jason for over a year now and have seen amazing results in that time. I have never felt stronger or healthier. Jason creates a comfortable atmosphere and then pushes you to work hard. Each session is challenging and consistent. He makes sure my form is correct and has recently helped me get back into the swing of working out post-surgery.

Jason motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get results with my workouts and my eating habits. I have incredible energy, and my shape and muscle tone have improved immensely from where I started. Initially I started to take off the excess weight; now that I have maintained my desired weight for over a year, I’m setting new goals for strength, growth and maintenance.

If you are serious about living a fit lifestyle, Jason willlead you with the perfect combination of tough and warmth. Because of his efforts, I am not only stronger, I enjoy working out, I don’t dread hitting the gym-when you get results, you want to stick with it!

I have never felt stronger or healthier

Jason was great at helping me reach my goal weight in record time. I’m 5’1 and I lost my goal of 9 pounds in 6 weeks, with his very strict diet plan and exercise regimen. I worked out for years and never got the results I wanted, mainly because I thought I could eat whatever I wanted, since I worked out.

Jason made me realize the importance of what you put in your mouth and how it makes a huge difference in your results. It takes a while to get used to eating this way, but I’m still following the diet, even after I’ve met my goal. I feel better and have more energy. Jason was always available to answer my questions and to help me understand why I should follow this eating plan.

As a nurse, I thought I understood how nutrition affected my body, but there was a lot I learned from Jason. My diet and workouts are much more effective, and I’m not wasting my time. If you are serious about changing your lifestyle and eating habits, I highly recommend working with Jason. He makes you accountable and you will definitely see results.

I highly recommend working with Jason...

Jason delivers! I had always wanted to get in good enough shape to show off, that was my goal. At the age of 53, with the support and encouragement of Jason, I entered the master’s division of the Venice Body Building Classic, …and won! Jason coached me for three months in my diet, and exercise regimen and supervised my workouts two days a week. He helped me get in phenomenal shape and gave me the confidence to get up on stage and strut my stuff! Jason lives what he teaches. You can trust him to get you in the shape you want, whatever that is. Like he says, “just do what I say” It works EVERY TIME. Thanks Jason!

Jason was extremely professional, on time, focused, and a no-nonsense, results oriented trainer. He pushed me hard, was consistent, made excellent recommendations, and got me better results than I ever imagined. His integrity and knowledge were clearly above his counterparts as I could visually see the difference between my time spent with him compared to other trainers in the gym and their client’s results.

Jason is the missing link...

Jason is the missing link. No, I don’t mean the human evolutionary one, but the best and only connection that I know of between the world of professional bodybuilding (where athletes dramatically improve their shapes) and the world of every-day personal training. For over a decade, I have either worked out with Jason, watched him train other clients, or watched him do his own workouts. By taking the proven techniques from the sport of bodybuilding and tailoring them to the everyday goals of his clients, Jason gets fantastic results with noticeably predictable regularity. I came to Jason at an age and a point in my career where I was not so optimistic about ever looking great again. And then, a couple of years later, people started saying to me: “Dude, you are ripped.” Trust me, it was a lot of fun hearing that. Thanks for your help, JK—it was essential. John M.

I’ve had personal trainers on and off in the past 12 years, but Jason’s training and nutrition program is the only program that’s ever gotten me as close as I am now to achieving the body I’ve only dreamed about. In only 4 weeks I gained 9 pounds of muscle and lost 6 pounds of fat, going from 20% down to 15% body fat — and those are crazy results! I get compliments left and right every week and everyone wants to know how I’m doing it or who I’m training with! You will absolutely achieve the body you want with Jason’s training and guidance!

Jason is a very diligent personal trainer; he truly cares that I achieve my goals, and that’s priceless. I will use the valuable knowledge that I received from Jason in connection with my diet and training tips for the rest of my life. I’ve been training with one of Jason’s high performance team members. He is a very gifted trainer who motivates me to work hard and designs training programs that target specific areas that I want to improve. He always stays very supportive and professional. I feel confident because I know that Jason will always have a plan how to continue making improvements to my physique.

Gained 10 lbs muscle
Testimonial Picture

When I came to Jason Kozma for help, I had already been working out very consistently on a daily basis for the past 7 years of my life, and was at somewhat of a plateau with my physique. I wasn’t somebody looking for a personal trainer for motivation to get to the gym or to help me push harder. What I needed was fine tuning to my already rigorous diet and workout regimen. I needed very specific and detailed information, only attainable from someone with the knowledge acquired through many years of personal, hands-on experience down in the trenches. After all, like most other sports, you can’t become an expert by reading a book or getting a certificate; practice makes perfect. The sport of physique competition has many tricks-of-the-trade that you won’t learn from a conventional nutritionist or personal trainer. I had 3 major goals when contacting Jason. I wanted to put on 15 pounds of muscle, compete in another men’s physique competition, and most important of all, rehabilitate my injured shoulder that had severely limited my performance and development for the past 5 years. I can now confidently say that all 3 are part of an accomplished mission. All training sessions were conducted with a high level of attention and personal interest on Jason’s behalf. As for the 15 pounds, the day I met Jason I weighed 176 pounds, now I weight exactly 190. All 14 pounds are muscle, no extra fat. As for the injured shoulder, I had gone through a fair share of downtime and physical therapy; nothing seemed to work and I had somewhat lost hope of a full recovery. What other non-bodybuilder therapists were unable to do was understand the source of the recurring irritation in my shoulder. Aside from assigning rehabilitation exercises, more importantly, Jason quickly noticed a subtle flaw in my bench-pressing technique and corrected it. That was, without a doubt, the factor has single-handedly restored my shoulder to a nearly full recovery after 5 whole years without any significant improvement. At first the price seemed a bit steep. Now, looking back, I feel like there wouldn’t have been much of an alternative to achieve the kinds of improvements I was able to achieve, and I am glad I spent the extra buck for some quality service. Thanks for all the good work, Jason!

Gained 14lbs of muscle, fixed my shoulder too!

This workout has been awesome. Initially, I signed up to get in shape for my wedding, but this has become a new lifestyle for me. Ruben is a great trainer and an even better person. I finally have motivation and accountability to stay in shape and feel GOOD about myself. The stairs are not as scary as they sound and the boxing class is super fun and gives me tons of confidence. Saturday mornings at the beach are great – so much better than being stuck inside a gym. Great people, great workout, reasonable price. I am a happy customer. : )

Heather: beginning bodyfat: 27.4% / 142 lbs – present bodyfat: 14.8% / 122 lbs Pounds lost : 20

After gaining almost 50 pounds while pregnant with my son, I didn’t think I would ever see a size 6 again. I worked out occasionally, but didn’t really have a program to follow or know where to begin to lose the weight. About the time I really decided to do something about my appearance, someone told my husband about Jason’s program and he began doing it. His program looked easy enough to follow and after a few weeks of seeing his results, I gave it a try. Jason developed a program that enabled me to lose the weight where I needed to and quickly. Seeing the results happen so fast gave me the motivation I needed to continue. I can’t tell you how exciting it was to put on pants that I thought I would never fit into again! Now I have the body and the confidence to fulfill one of my life-long dreams – trying out to be a cheerleader for an NFL team. Jason even changed my program to help me achieve that goal in a few short months. I can’t thank you enough Jason. You are a genius!!!

As a personal trainer and figure competitor, I understand eating clean and dedication, but Jason’s plan took things to a whole new level for me! By creating a customized meal plan and training regimen, he helped me to lose stubborn body fat, add lean muscle and sculpt my body just the way I wanted.

I have always wanted to compete in a bikini competition. I made up my mind and went to Jason after checking out his impressive personal trainer website! He built a plan for me around the amount of time I had to train before the competition date! I got a huge list of foods and plenty of exercises to keep me going. I was always sweating and feeling good after my weight training sessions! I started with Jason at 24% body fat and 127lbs. Eight weeks later, I was down to 20% body fat and 125 lbs. By competition day (15 weeks from day 1), I weighed in at 123 and 16% body fat. I lost 8% body fat and tons of inches everywhere, including 3 off each thigh!! My scale only dropped a few pounds which let me know that even while I was dropping fat like crazy, I wasn’t losing muscle – in fact I was replacing the fat by building more muscle! If you want results and fast – hire this man as your personal trainer and follow the rules! It CAN be done!
