Erin Breen

Jason is simply awesome. I worked with him and his trainers for 3 months and got the exact results I wanted. I train simply to feel good and keep my health balanced. These last three months were focused on strengthening and leaning out, and he helped me devise a diet and training plan that specifically catered to my goals. He's professional and knowledgeable, and pushes you to your limits. I couldn't be more thrilled with my results!

Thanks Jason. I’ve been very happy with your on-line training program. I have been looking for awhile for a program to get back into shape after years of working at a desk job. I have always been into sports and have a fair amount of fitness knowledge, but have never been able to put together an effective program on my own. The personal trainers at the gyms also didn’t have the knowledge to get the type of results that I and most other people are looking for.

I lost about 25 lbs in 12 weeks on your program and got down to 5% body fat at age 40. My waist went from 34.5” to 28.5”. Your knowledge of diet and how it affects the body is phenomenal. What I learned will have a lasting impact on the way I eat in the future.

The only regret is that I did not have the opportunity to work out with you personally. I am sure there is a lot more I can learn from you.  Even after following a fairly demanding fat loss program for 12 weeks, five days later after you changed the diet I went on to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with no problem. I felt fine the whole way and had plenty of energy.  I fully recommend you to anyone and look forward to training with you in the future.

Its been great working with Jason with weight training, exercise and mostly nutrition. How much I did not know what a lifestyle change it would be. But it has been great. I started working with Jason a couple of years ago and have been able to maintain my exercise regimen as well as my nutrition. What a difference it makes. When he first gave me my nutrition plan I thought he was crazy, and that he was, but it all worked.

When I started working with Jason and Morgan I wanted to lose about 5 - 10 pounds. I thought I would just tone up, and feel more energetic. I started out going through the motions at first, and complaining about not getting to eat my favorite foods. I did not follow the nutritional recommendations, until I finally just decided to give in to it one day. After about the 3rd work I noticed how much more energy I had, and the weight just came off easily! I then noticed a significant change in my body shape and definition, and others took notice as well. I am now at a size 0, and I am feeling as young as I did in high school!!

I get compliments from everyone, and I feel hot!! Morgan is a great trainer. He is fun, energetic, and caring. He always makes sure you are getting what you need, and feeling pain where you need to! He changes things up so you are never bored, and before you know it, your hour is up, and you feel ready to take on the day. This has been such a life affirming experience, and I am so glad I met both Jason and Morgan, and I thank them for giving me a model's body, and what I plan on being a life time commitment to great health!

Janis: from 137 / 25% bodyfat to 122 / 15.5%

 


Laura before and after

If you're looking to get into great shape and fast Jason is the personal trainer to see. I have always been active, but had never used a trainer. Recently I underwent foot surgery and was confined to bed rest for nearly a month. When I was able to walk, my range of motion was very limited and I realized that I had gained some weight from being sedentary. I found Jason while surfing the web and decided to book an appointment. Jason was very careful to work around and with my limitations (foot). I was very impressed with his conscientiousness towards my safety. Over the next 6 weeks he kept me motivated and his discipline regarding diet actually rubbed off. This in itself is a small feat as I had many social functions including my wedding and I still managed to stick to Jason's diet plan. He really stays on top of how you're doing and does his best to help you succeed with your goals. I am extremely pleased with my results and feel like I am in the best shape of my life. If you're serious about getting healthier and thinner - Jason is the trainer for you.

Best Wishes, Laura: Lost 11 pounds in 6 weeks  

 


 

Liz marathon

When I began training with Jason I wanted to lose some weight but more importantly I wanted to be forced to go to the gym on a consistent basis (at least for 8 weeks). Training with Jason I achieved much more! I have lost over 15 lbs and gained muscle, strength and confidence.

Now, I enjoy going to the gym and exercising. I even started running. I recently completed my first 5K and plan to continue to pursue new sports, new challenges and continue my new healthy lifestyle.

Thanks Jason!

After a highly frustrating, prolonged 3 1/2 month fitness plateau and the inability of three different personal trainers and a registered nutritionist to get me back on track to achieve the results I desired, I came across Jason’s website while researching solutions to my dilemma. Jason’s fitness philosophy seemed to good to be true. Still skeptical but with an attitude of “nothing ventured, nothing gained”, I booked an LA Body session with him. From the get-go Jason was extremely confident that his individually tailored nutritional plan and fitness workout would get results. Well….. words are one thing, tangible results are another and 2 1/2 months later I’ve lost 18 pounds and 11 1/2 inches. I believe in Jason’s ability to read the body and trust in his knowledge to come up with a healthy formula to transform it accordingly. OK Jason, it seems you DO rule!!

It seemed that no matter how hard I exercised or dieted, I never seemed to look the way I wanted to. One afternoon, I noticed that my neighbor (who had 2 small children) looked wonderful. She looked so trim and fit. I commented on how great she looked, and she told me about her personal trainer, Jason Kozma. I had known other friends that had personal trainers and I never saw much difference in their appearance. Seeing such a dramatic change in my neighbor's appearance in such a short period of time, I decided to take the next step.

I am a 48 year old mother of three children. I gave myself and Jason Kozma the ultimate challenge. I had 6 weeks until our family Hawaiian summer vacation, and I wanted to wear a bikini! We did it! With Jason's professional guidance and constant encouragement, my personal dream came true! I have decided that I am going to continue with Jason Kozma's personal training so that I may continue being fit, and build my stamina to make my everyday work easier on my body. I want to continue living my dream.

My husband was so impressed with my incredible transformation, he decided to do something about his health and appearance. He also decided to train with Jason. He feels much healthier and fit, and he looks really good too! This is the best thing we have done for ourselves. We made the investment in our health and our bodies for our family and ourselves.

Thank you Jason, for your incredible expertise!

At age 46, with three young kids, I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle to emphasize longevity. Jason has changed my lackadaisical attitude towards weight training by vigorously motivating me through every workout, along with his expert nutritional advice to assure consistent improvement. I've never felt stronger or healthier in my life!

Plus, my kids keep calling me "Buff Bagwell" (I hope that's a good thing)

Thanks, Jason!

I've had an opportunity to train with 5 different trainers across the country, in Washington D.C., New York, Denver and Los Angeles, and let me honestly tell you, it's only since I've worked with Jason that I've seen this tremendous progress. In just five weeks I've put on 17 pounds. I've had to go out and buy new clothes having literally ripped out of my old shirts.              

Jason is the only trainer I'm aware of who not only customizes my training and nutrition to my specific needs and goals but also to how my body is changing and responding to training. Each workout is different, and each workout brings results you can see. Jason's ability to adapt my workout and nutrition to my changing needs means continued progress too. If you ever hope to achieve the goals you have in the way you look, whatever those individual goals may be, you owe it to yourself to work with Jason. You will see results. I stake my reputation on it.

David G. DiFrancesco Counselor/Therapist, Minister, NPC Judge

P.S. Jason ,I had to write to tell you of something that just happened. I've been training with you for just a month and this past weekend I walked into my old gym. Another trainer there came over and couldn't believe it was me. He actually hadn't recognized me at first. He remarked at how much bigger I had become and actually wanted to know what I was on! Well, I'd be the first to admit a 13 pound gain in just a month looks 'suspicious', but all it took was consistently training with you and following exactly the nutrition program you put me on. No drugs, just my willingness to follow what you tell me to do. And to tell you the truth, I've actually ripped out of three shirts so far. I haven't seen gains like this in a long time and it feels great!

Thanks a lot!

See you in the sweat shop!

Before contacting Jason Kozma, I had a consultation with a plactic surgeon about getting liposuction. The quote was rather high and I came to the conclusion that if I had the surgery, I might become thinner, but I would still feel the same blah attitude I had come to accept as normal. I decided to sweat off the pounds and build muscle.

Fast forward to six months later.

I had, indeed, sweated off about 20 pounds (kind of hard to say if that is the exact number of fat pounds I lost since I was doing a rather rigorous muscle training routine.) I lost 4 inches from my waist. My arms went from 11.5 inches to about 15.5 inches. My quads are pushing 22 inches. My abs are on the verge of popping out. I decided to go clubbing on July 4th and show off a little of my new body. I wore a very flattering muscle shirt and a pair of jeans. While I was on the dance floor, I turned around and to my surprise, the plastic surgeon I had the consultation with so many months before was dancing behind me. I said hello and then realized it clicked in his mind who I was. He proceeded to tell me he was sorry I didn't choose him for my surgery. I was flabbergasted. He thought I had actually underwent surgery. I cannot even explain how flattered I was. I proceeded to tell him I had not had the surgery, but hired a trainer and nutritionist instead. He leaned in closer and said, "That's the best way to do it."

So, forget plastic surgery. I'd rather be buff and lean than just thin and sucked out. I'll take a trainer any day.

Thank You Jason.

Sincerely, Guy D. Wells

 

 


 

Hey Jason, I met you last summer. I just wanted to say that the program worked out.

I lost like 30 pounds. I weighed 189 when we started, and now I weigh 160. Looks good.

Thanks!

Gonzalo

 


 

Jason, congratulations to you on your win at the Mr. America! I have not spoken to you since Heather Lake & her husband referred me.... I have stuck to your plan and have lost a total of 22 pounds and working out at Gold's here in Nashville. I am 5'7" (almost 5'8" and weight 139) and in a size 5-6 (down from a size 12 & 162 lbs). I have reached my goal!! My clothes fit great and I continue to keep toning.  

Thanks again & congratulations for meeting your goals as well!

Go to Jason when you're ready for results. He doesn't have you doing a bunch of exercises where you're contorting your body into ridiculous positions. With Jason it's about science, logic and hard work. He gives you a diet. He has you doing a lot of the "basics" - bench press, pull-ups, squats (this is for guys - his routine is different for women) The genius is in the execution.  Jason knows your limit, and he knows how to consistently push you 10-20% beyond it, week after week. Jason isn't about creating "fun" exercise routines.  He thinks results are fun. So do I.  

You've tried doing things your way; how's that working for you?

Try Jason's way.

Jeff R, Los Angeles

To Jason...a muscle genius:


You've gotten me into the best shape of my life.  Not only am I buff as hell but I feel AWESOME!...thanks to you.  These past few weeks off from training with you have been a pain because I've actually missed working out.  I can't wait to start training with you again and this time I will be recruiting some of my sorority friends!



Keep up the good work!!!

Maryann after

Dear Jason- 

Thank you. Your program is the best. With your help, I have radically improved my health, changed my lifestyle, and toned my body. I am now in the best shape I have ever been in!

Because of this experience, I have decided to become a Certified Personal Trainer so I can help others.

I was a serious asthmatic, and a heavy smoker. Off the record, several Doctors told me I was several years from being on oxygen.

I had lots of stress in my life, I was constantly juggling many things like kids, school, work etc... and needless to say, I let myself go. I was out of shape, very ill and feeling terrible.

I decided I needed to help myself- I quit smoking, and basically began to rehabilitate myself. That's when I joined your online training and nutrition program. Having never worked with a Personal Trainer especially via the Internet, I was skeptical. I took the chance, and I'm here to say, the results speak for themselves. At 40 years old, I am off all of my medications; I can now run about 4 miles a day. I am toned, have lots of energy, and basically feel great! 

Sincerely,  Maryann

 


 

Jason : My energy level was very good throughout the week. My workout recovery continues to improve dramatically every week.  My cholesterol was 189 4 months ago. It is now 146. My blood pressure was 122/84 four month ago. It  is now 112/64. My resting heart rate was 75 4 months ago. It is now 51. I'm getting closer to seeing my AB muscles. My waistline is about 30 and will probably end up about 28 to 29  before I see what's under the fat.

Beginning weight and bodyfat%: 192.5 /13%    Ending weight and bodyfat%:     184 /8.4%

Training with Jason is changing my body and the way I feel about myself. I never thought I could become as strong as I have already, and it feels great.

Jason really understands how to start where you are and work up in a way that is both challenging and rewarding. Working out with Jason is an important ingredient in my general well-being, as well as my improved appearance.

Jason is an excellent Trainer!

I would recommend him for and sports or any physically related goal. I came to Jason to increase my speed and body shape. I compete in half marathons and shorter distance races. I am a sponsored athlete, and my career relies on appearance and performance. Speed and looking good is very important to me.

Jason designed me a diet and exercise program to help trim me up and improve my running. He also provides something that was that made all the right information work, and that was more motivation and focus on my goals. Working with Jason on a weekly basis kept me very focus and motivated.

I live in Riverside (1:30 min drive from LA) so most of what we did was over the internet through email. I was able to contact him for questions and feedback on my routine and progress several times a week. Also, I would drive to LA 1-2 times per month to see Jason.            

In 8 weeks of working with Jason I dropped 14lbs.  My shorts size went from a size small to an extra small that needed to be hemmed in 2 inches. January 15, 2005 I took 1st place women overall in the Highland half marathon (13.1 miles). The first 7 miles of this race was all up hill.

It was a tough race! Working with Jason worked!

I plan to keep working with Jason to keep furthering myself in my career and fitness goals.

Lejla before and after

Lejla before and after

I was training for about a year, and wanted desperately to compete in figure competitions. I had a hard time losing that "extra" fat, especially on thighs and Glutes. I contacted Jason Kozma, and we sat down for a consultation.

He knew exactly what needed to be done to achieve my goals. I had only 6 weeks, and on the 1st appointment with Jason I was 18% body fat. By following Jason's expertise in nutrition and supplements, I was able to get down to 9% BODY FAT in LESS than 6 weeks. Jason Kozma, knows what he's doing.. he is the real deal. Many trainer's can talk, but few deliver.

I went from a flabby average girl.. to the 2006 Ms. Figure America. I would have NEVER taken first place if it wasn't for Jason. I intend to use him again throughout my career in Figure Competing.

I have a back and neck problem and we have been able to successfully work around it while still focusing on the muscles and areas that need strengthening without damaging my back. Other trainers have ignored my pleas for a varied fitness routine, or alternate exercises with respect to my neck & back issues. This would only frustrate me and cause more discomfort and pain.

I've already lost one dress size and I am starting to feel good about myself again. Jason has helped me integrate working out and diet as a lifestyle. 

Taylor Van Arsdale, Singer, Performer

 

 


 

Training with Jason has taught me not just what exercises to do but how to make sure I do them correctly. He not only makes sure that you are on the correct overall workout, but he also knows the small details, such as grip and stance, that can make a big difference.

As a result, I feel better both psychologically and physically. More importantly, Jason takes the guesswork out of working out and provides motivation. I have worked out with other trainers and what makes Jason unique is his ability to tailor an appropriate workout for different clients. Not everyone's body is the same and Jason's appreciation of this allows his clients to see maximum gains.

Eric Grossman, Writer

 


 

Turning 40 ain't easy! But thanks to you Jason, my body is feeling healthier and stronger than anytime in the last decade, and of course that positively affects my attitude and outlook also. My previously serious low back condition is entirely gone. I have had no back pain since we started training together. I didn't believe that training would help my back, but in fact not only do I have no pain, but I have surprised myself as to my back strength.

A few weeks ago, I was driving my Volvo and ran out of gas. It was night time and I was barefoot. I had to get my car out of the way of traffic. So instinctively, I jumped out of the car and started pushing. Well, I had to push it uphill, to the side of the street, to avoid traffic, in bare feet no less (with no traction). Before I knew it, I had done it. It was a snap. I didn't consider until later, that I could never had done that without training with you. My body responded great.

Even now, when I miss a workout or two, my body feels worse. My overall attitude and body are lethargic when I don't train. I'm going to stick with what works, and that's to keep training with you.

THANKS JASON!

tracy sulkin at mt renier

I was starting to train for my 5th attempt on Mt. Rainier, and realized that, in order to succeed, I needed to improve my training method; so I decided to get help.



After reviewing a number of different physical training programs, Jason's appeared to make the most sense. He put me on track with the right diet, cardiovascular schedule and weight training program. I was assigned to Nicholas Barrett, a knowledgeable, thorough, and careful full-time trainer. 


I trained with Nicholas three times per week; and with that, the cardio and the diet, it was very intense. But then, so is mountain climbing.



In just two months, I had lost 20 lbs and felt ready for Rainier. It was time to go to the mountain. The climb was extremely hard and I thought about turning back many times. After 10,000 vertical feet of snow, ice and crevasses, I finally stepped onto the 14,410' summit of Mt. Rainier. I was victorious!  I know that if it hadn't been for Jason's program, I never would have made it to the top. His program had made the difference.

diane walter before and after

Diane before and after

Almost five years ago I gained 15 pounds while doing chemotherapy for breast cancer. This was not unusual for women doing the type of chemo I did, though it was partly caused by  “feeling sorry for myself” overindulgence. I didn’t worry about it at the time because I’d always been fit, and I had rapidly lost weight after two pregnancies. However, the chemo also put me into early menopause. I found I was not able to shed the pounds as easily as in the past.

Nothing worked. I tried Atkins, but that made me feel like I was doing chemo again – I slowed way down during aerobic workouts. I just didn’t have any energy.  

Then I discovered Jason Kozma’s web pages and decided to sign up for his online personal training. Right away he developed a personalized diet and workout routine for me. He increased the number of my aerobic workout sessions slightly and added several weight training sessions per week.  I particularly liked his diet. I ate often and I ate foods that I liked and were good for me. I had lots of energy. My bike and swim times actually improved on the diet.  

Recently I celebrated my 52nd birthday and I am also about to celebrate the fifth anniversary of completing chemotherapy. My weight is within 2 pounds of my “pre-chemo” weight! I am much stronger and fitter than I’ve ever been.   I owe it all to Jason’s program. I recommend it very highly. Jason, you are my hero!

Thank you so much!

Diane - Research Engineer

 


 

Jason Kozma's diet program really helped me get my eating habits in check. It was hard at first to eat so many times a day but the results came quick once I dedicated myself to following his plan . I lost the extra lbs that I wanted to lose for a show in the time I needed. I felt so much better after just a few weeks and have incorporated the eating plan into my eating lifestyle.

Taylor


 

I could tell you how many inches I’ve lost (2.5), or I could tell you how many pounds of fat I melted off myself (16), but there are more important things to discuss here.
More than releasing me from flab, this diet practically released me from an addiction to food. I had bad eating habits as a kid, as a teenager, and later, a college student. Though they did improve a bit throughout the years they were never stellar, and I kept wondering why all my effort in the gym didn’t yield the desired results.
One Jason Kozma later the answer was obvious. Once I got on this program I realized how much I craved all those pieces of pizza, all that ice cream and chips and soda and crap that I will only enjoy IN MODERATION anymore.
I was surprised how much I lost and how quickly I lost it, but more than that I was surprised at how much diet determines how you look, and how far off the right kind of dieting I was doing. At first I envied my fellow students because they were eating whatever they wanted, but now (and this is the most awesome thing I’m coming away with) I look at what they’re eating and I’m not even tempted. BWAHAHAHAHA!
Thanks a lot, Jason; I couldn’t have done it without you.

Yours, Alexis  

 


 

Eli

The 8 week training I received was incredible! Through the program I received a meal program that taught me healthy eating habits to gain weight the right way. My starting weight was 147 lbs. and by the end of the 8 weeks I weighed 160 lbs.

Because I learned how to train with proper form, I saw an increase in my bench weight from 175 lbs to 225 lbs. I leg pressed an incredible 540 lbs! Something I never thought I could ever do especially since I hated working out legs. I learned a great deal of information such as how to weight train and how effectively do so by training smart.

Jason and James did an amazing job motivating me and encouraging me all eight weeks. I have gain an incredible amount of knowledge about training smart and eating healthy. The program is valuable and will give you the results you expect!

Jason is a champion trainer! It is ALL thanks to Jason Kozma, Mr America, that I was able to take on the challenge of even entering the 2008 Venice Beach Figure Contest. He was capable of helping me develop the necessary mental strength and physical strength needed to enter and win a contest like this. I could never have guessed I would ever have done something like this but with Jason as a coach and manager, I was pushed to my right superior strength and won!! I am very pleased with Jason as a trainer, and after all the trainers I gone thru the years Jason is definitely the BEST trainer ever. I hope he will train me to my grave.

Hey Jason, I met you last summer.  I just wanted to say that the program worked out.  I lost like 30 pounds. I weighed 189 when we started, and now I weigh 160.  Looks good.  Thanks! 

Gonzalo

 


 

For the record-- Thank You!  I started at 262 pounds.  Now, I weigh 227.  That's a loss of 35 pounds.  I lost 4 inches off my waist and 2 inches off my collar.  In total I've lost 16 inches of flab.  As for strength, I've gone from feeble to having regained posture.  I have way more energy now than I have in the past 5 years.  


I would probably have lost 50-60 lbs, but all this damm muscle you put on me is counting against me.  I'm not quite at the "after" stage for photographs, but I'm going to try and keep up on my own.  I never worked out or dieted a day in my adult life, but you kept me in the gym 3 days a week for 7 months!!
 

You also made me put in 100's of hours on the bike.  Your diet works, but I am reluctant to compliment you on it because I think I could have handled more beer, burgers and cheesecake in order to balance it out some more.   



Seriously, thank you for the great job you did and the dedication you did it with.  My email is [email protected] -- feel free to have any prospective clients use it for a reference.   

Sanjay Sabnani, Consultant

 


 

Hey Jason - things are going great.  I was taking all the supplements for over a month, and wow, you sure know what you are doing.  I got the size and tone in my butt that I wanted so I am doing all the exercises.  Yeah, I can snap pencils now with my glutes...quite amazing.  It's funny, you do all the exercises and don't notice anything then you put on something tight and astound yourself.  The rest of the measurements are either the same or a half inch smaller or bigger.  I think I did drop body fat a bit.  At first my weight dropped like a rock and I had to eat more carbs but I am actually at what I was before but it is more muscle.   

Anyway, you are the master.  Those exercises really targeted what I wanted to target.  Phil knows he still owes you the testimonial on lowering his cholesterol 50 points, he has been so busy with other stuff, but will get it off to you.  

Hope all is good there.  I owe you the before and after photos but they are not really dramatic as  I just toned everywhere and improved the back porch.  

Thanks, Elaine
