About Mr. America Jason Kozma's Santa Monica Bodybuilding Training program 

This page pertains to my bodybuilding training programs, for both those interested in competition or if you simply want to add muscle and shape. I've coached and trained men and women who just wanted to put on some muscle to competitive natural bodybuilders, bikini, figure and fitness competitors.

I am an experienced competitive bodybuilder with over twenty years worth of experience in weight training and bodybuilding training, nutrition and competition prep. My program focuses on improving your physique.  Most trainers programs emphasize improvement in athletic or functional fitness and endurance, rather than focusing on what works to create a championship physique.

If your goal is to build muscle whether it's for the stage, beach, workplace, bedroom or just for your own satisfaction, training with me makes the most sense. Why train with a general fitness trainer when your goal is to build muscle? Shouldn't you work with someone who's an expert at building and shaping muscle?

I've trained numerous people to get in the best shape of their lives. If you want to compete in bikini, fitness, figure, physique or bodybuilding competitions or just look like you could do so, meet with me now!

Finding the right personal trainer can mean the difference between success and failure in bodybuilding. If you choose a coach that isn't suited for you, it can not only be frustrating, but it can also waste your time and money. If you’re considering using a bodybuilding coach, here are some of the benefits, as well as a few guidelines for selecting the right coach.

Advantages of Having a Bodybuilding Coach

You may be asking why you need to invest in a bodybuilding coach. Can’t you improve your physique on your own? Here are some the benefits:

  • Motivation and inspiration—As bodybuilding is hard work, you’ll need a coach to encourage you when you’re feeling discouraged about your progress.
  • Accountability—Too often, people give up on bodybuilding when they’re on their own because they don't have someone to whom they’re accountable.
  • Proper instruction—A personal bodybuilding coach can point out what exercises that actually benefit you rather than those that seem more comfortable. After all, you should be after results more than what feels good.  

Training for Aesthetic Improvement Vs. Training for Performance or Strength

Consider your goals for bodybuilding. Training for aesthetic goals doesn't necessarily entail using the same techniques as training for performance or strength.  

If want to train for increased strength and better performance, your training will involve movement patterns. But if your goal is for improved aesthetics, your training will be more focused on isolated muscle and shape training.

Additional Considerations

  • Ask yourself how much you’re willing to invest in time and money.
  • Consider an online bodybuilding coach. Online coaching can be more affordable and accessible.
  • Consider the frequency that you need to contact your trainer if using one that’s online. You should be checking in at least weekly.
  • Decide which particular services you need in a bodybuilding coach.

If you’re looking for a high quality personal trainer and bodybuilding coach, look no further. Besides offering on-site gym-based training, we also provide online coaching.

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!

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!
