"I never thought the day would come when I would need a trainer not only to get me back in to the gym but also to enjoy working out again - I had all but given up. After a year long hiatus from any type of exercise, not only has Jason put me back on track but he has pushed me beyond what I thought my capabilities were at the time. Jason listens and then delivers without delay! I wanted "no nonsense" and believe me, that's what I got! He is an amazing trainer, motivator and friend who has helped me more than words can describe. Jason will be the only trainer I ever have - Thanks Jason!"

I train with Jason because he is, hands down, the best trainer I've ever worked with, and I've trained with plenty. Jason is the bomb!

roxanneBeing physically active and in shape has always been a part of my life. Building and maintaining a beautifully shaped and well-toned body requires dedication to a regimen of cardiovascular exercise and weight training; along with compliance to a healthy diet. I began to find my workouts not only become boring and mundane, but I found myself having to work harder in order to achieve the same goals. It was becoming tougher to stay in shape and I wasn't progressing in my training.

For the first time, I decided to seek out a personal trainer. Given I had always trained myself with good results my criteria for a trainer was strict and the shoes looked like they were going to be very difficult to fill!

I was very surprised and pleased when I found Jason. Jason takes pride in every client he personally trains. He's fully vested in your success and pushes even the most avid and knowledgeable fitness buff to levels they thought were unattainable. His many years of experience and vast knowledge enables him to put together a personalized program. He balances the right amount of weight training, cardio exercise, supplement use and diet; tailored to meet the needs of each individual client. My workouts with Jason have allowed me to maintain my physique by working out smarter and more effectively; every rep counts. No time or energy is wasted. Even if you're a serious athlete or long term fitness advocate who has trained on their own for years, a workout with Jason will most definitely be challenging, yet rewarding.

My results are no longer just good, they're great.....thanks Jason!!

So far on my progress: I've lost at least 10 pounds in the last two weeks working with Brandon and following the diet plan to the best of my ability. I stepped on the scale and was like holy s**t!

Thanks again man!

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! Gale: 2003 Venice Muscle Classic Champion (at age 53!)

 


 

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 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.

Kathy lost 5 inches off her waist

Kathy lost 5 inches off her waist!

In a panic over an upcoming trip to Cancun I started training with Jason. Now, 7 weeks later, I am amazed at how quickly the weight, and more importantly, the inches have come off. Jason knows how to focus on those "problem areas" as well as getting the whole body balanced and toned. I have trouble with my knees and lower back and Jason was always sure to modify exercises and be mindful of not aggravating old injuries. I feel fit, strong and finally comfortable in my own body. My only complaint is now I have to buy a whole new wardrobe!

Jason is a brilliant trainer; he not only helped me with weight loss, which I thought was the only thing I needed to work on, but the finer points of "physique management" like keeping the muscles toned and tight, shaping the body effectively with weights without bulking me up and his dietary knowledge is far greater than anyone I have ever met before.

Deena

I'm the kind of woman that needs to be inspired to work out. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy it, but having someone knowledgeable, fun and who knows how to get me to get the most out of my workout time is what gets me going. That's why I started training with Jason Kozma. I watched how he trained other men and women at the gym and I knew instantly that his genuine concern for his client's individual health and fitness needs and his sense of humor was just what I needed in a trainer. Jason gave me personalized advice on nutrition and gave me specific exercises to fit my needs. Working out with Jason has made me more conscious of how I treat my body. I have incorporated a much healthier, low fat diet into my lifestyle that Jason personally created for me to lean out and stay lean. His workout's have given my body more definition than I have ever had and I feel so much better about myself. I recently got married and let Jason know that I wanted to achieve the firmest, sexiest body possible for my wedding and honeymoon. After 3 months of consistent training and a low fat healthy diet, he helped me to achieve that goal. I will continue to work out with him because when I do, I know I am in good hands with a total professional.

Six months ago, I discovered Jason's site and signed up for a 3-month package, hoping to lose a pesky 10 pounds that haven't budged for years in spite of my daily cardiovascular workouts (cycling, running and competitive tennis). I've always disliked gym workouts and knew I wouldn't stick with a program unless I had an inspiring, caring trainer keeping me honest. Jason is that and more: not only is he the best, most committed personal trainer I've witnessed, but his program got those 10 pounds off my body in the promised 3 months! Additionally, my fitness and energy levels were boosted in time for a grueling book tour that required traveling among 9 cities in 2 weeks. I'm sold on Jason's programs and can't imagine my life without them now.

anthony Jason,  I tried another more "nationally recognized" program to lose fat and gain muscle before enlisting your help, and that program was a true waste of time compared to the results I got from yours. You designed a program tailored specifically to my needs, not a cookie cutter one many trainers provide. Not everyone is the same, nor do they respond the same way, and you understand this. You stayed intuned to how my body was reacting to the program you designed and made adjustments when needed, as you did on 4 separate occasions during the course of my 8 weeks of training.

The numbers really say it all as I lost 9 lbs., my waist went from 35" to 32", and my BF went from 15% to 4.9%. Furthermore, my interaction with you has given me the necessary knowledge that will enable me to continue living a healthy lifestyle. I would recommend you to anyone without hesitation, although you should provide a disclaimer stating that anyone who follows your program will have to buy new clothes because the current ones will no longer fit.  

Thanks for everything and I looking forward to training with you further! 

Anthony Lake, personal trainer, football coach  

P.S. Since changing my program to add more muscle mass, I have gained 11 lbs. in 6 weeks while keeping my BF at 4.9% and I still have the 32" waist.


 

 

Emily Kirby Fitness America Competitor

When I came to Jason I had no clue where to begin. I knew I wanted to start competing in Fitness Competitions but did not know how to get the results I desired. At the beginning of my program I was at 23.1 body fat. Most competitors compete between 10 and 15 . Not to mention I only had 12 weeks to prepare. Now don't get me wrong I have always been an active person and ate fairly well for a normal person, but we all know that fitness competitors are far from "normal". Jason evaluated my goals and and sent me a very easy to follow diet and exercise plan. He gave me a list of good, acceptable foods and let me know what I needed to eat when. The best part was how easy it was to follow. I didn't have to worry about counting calories or grams of protein or anything like that. Every week I turned in my diary and Jason let me know what I needed to change. It's a lot harder to cheat on your diet when you know you're going to be caught. Now that my competition is done and over with I have a greater knowledge of my body, training and nutrition. I have Jason to thank for that. Even now that I consider myself seasoned I rely on Jason's plan as my base top get me back on track during my off season.

I recommend Jason to everyone I know who is serious about changing their body and getting into the best shape of their life! I was a trainer myself, but I wanted somebody to really push me and KNEW what they were talking about, and when I met Jason I knew that I was with the right one, there is nobody that knows it like him! It is not just about working out 1hr every couple of days with him it is about diet and serious commitment, I have to say he is the best at what he does, and I have not been in better shape! It has been a year of training with him and not only have I had a blast doing it, I am still seeing constant improvements!

Dear Jason, When my neighbor Paulette recommended you as her personal trainer, I was turned off by my previous experience with a trainer I had in the recent past. She had thin legs and had me do her own workout consisting of thigh building exercises which were only further thickening my legs. Your no - nonsense approach to improving my body was just what I needed. No more bulking exercises, but a unique workout designed to suit my body. My husband has been one of your strongest supporters, because he has seen the way you have sculpted my body for the better. Jason, you are an artist when it comes to sculpting bodies, both male and female. You customize the workout to the clients needs and manage to keep it fun and interesting. I would highly recommend you to anyone who is serious about starting a workout program where results are inevitable.

With much appreciation, Delaney; Mother, Gourmet chef

4 years living in hotels, working way too hard and working out way too little had resulted in what I thought was an extra 10 - 15 pounds that I just couldn't get rid of no matter what I tried. When someone enquired when I was due I realized it was time to really do something about it.

Jason Kozma was the answer. In 8 weeks Jason gave me a better body than I had ever had before. 10 - 15 pounds turned out to be 25 pounds and the six pack I had only ever fantasized about became a reality. Jason's combination of weight training and his amazing diet (he actually had me eating 3 times as much as usual and dropping pounds by the day) is the quickest, healthiest way I know of to guarantee the body you've always wanted.

The effects of training with Jason and the new body that came with it have enhanced every aspect of my life...I can't recommend him highly enough. Not to mention he has you laughing the whole way through it.

When I started training with Jason, he helped me to change my eating habits. I eat so much more healthy now and as a result have better muscle definition to show for it and I feel better. The weight training helped me develop great definition and feel more powerful for my videos and for my photo shoots. I’ve gotten so many compliments from people in the music business and just friends and family. Jason absolutely cuts you no slack, but you feel great as a result. So it’s about feeling more powerful as well as being more powerful. He’s the man.

I like to choose my trainers carefully and, to this end, spent a great deal of time carefully watching the trainers in my gym from afar. What made Jason stand out from the rest was his absolute dedication to his job. Fitness training is a clearly a vocation for Jason, and he is absolutely committed to every one of his numerous clients. Working with him has given me new insight, motivation and, let's not forget, tone! I saw changes in my body after just two weeks, and continue to do so. Jace is ace! You should feel lucky to work with him.

I do.

Carol before and after

Of course, the changes in my physical appearance were really impressive, and that boosted my confidence enormously. I really learned about working out safely and how to make my overall lifestyle more healthy -- better nutrition and vitamins, proper rest, etc. Jason provided me with motivation to stay in shape, and a program I have successfully continued with on my own, both comfortably and effectively, until each time I'm ready to see him again and move up to the next level!

Jason really customized the program to me. I had worked out with other people who just gave me the same blah-blah they give everyone else, and then stood there during the workout, bored, just counting reps. Jason worked with me to design a workout that would not only NOT aggravate old injuries (bad back, chronic knee and ankle problems, etc.), but in fact has helped reduce the symptoms of the past injuries (one of which was even caused by another, "Brand-X" trainer -- beware of all those guys out there who don't know what they're doing!). Jason maintains high energy and motivational talk during the workout, so when I exercise on my own I can picture what Jason would say to me, and that keeps me going.

Jason also makes very sure that I know EXACTLY how the exercise is done properly, so I can do it right and get the maximum benefit from each rep. I've never had next-day achiness or soreness in training with Jason, even though the workouts are tough enough to make me sweat a TON each session!

Jason gave me the exercises I need to make my body look the way I want it to look, and very quickly. I went from a size 11 to a size 5 in about 4 months, with a loss of 20 pounds of fat (including getting rid of some really ugly "saddlebags" on my thighs) and a gain of a lot of hot-looking muscle!

Then, a year later, when I had had a little too much food fun in the form of holiday eating, Jason got me back to those size 5s in just over one month -- WOW!  And, when the going gets rough, Jason makes me laugh, which keeps me committed to working out -- who knew that a killer exercise routine could not only get the job done, but also be FUN?!

You gotta train with Jason Kozma!

Very truly yours, Carol Goldstein, Filmmaker

 


 

Mike after

Jason changed the way I think about my body and about fitness. I did not realize that I could get into such great shape.  I was living a very corporate and sedentary  lifestyle and I had ballooned to 200 pounds and I felt horrible.  I spent 8 weeks working with Jason and it made a huge impact on the way I look and the way I feel.       

I followed the diet very strictly, rode my mountain bike a lot, and worked out with Jason 3 days a week. My wife says she has a renewed sexual interest in me!  It was the best money I ever spent. I think anybody that really wants to make a positive change in their life should consider working with Jason.  You will discover strength that you have not felt in years.

Lorna before and after

Training with Jason Kozma not only changed the way my body looked, it changed the whole way I viewed food and exercise. I was amazed at how quickly my body went from squidgy to firm. I learned how to get the most out of my time spent working out and how to combine foods for optimum health and energy. At 30, I'm happier and healthier than I ever was in my 20's! Jason sees each person's individuality and tailors the workouts accordingly. If you've always wanted to change your bad eating and exercise habits but haven't know how to, stop procrastinating and spend some time training with Jason. You won't be disappointed!

Susan wedding 

Jason Kozma began training me for my wedding in January of 2001, I was skeptical that I would see results (if any) from prior fitness experiences. However, I would quickly be proven wrong! Jason is not only a talented and knowledgeable trainer, he is fun, energetic and surprisingly humorous. These qualities make it close to impossible to fail meeting your goals!

Originally, my goal was for my July wedding. Much to my surprise, I passed my goals within 2 months! I have never felt more beautiful and confident in my life. I am fortunate to have found Jason before my wedding, I have pictures I will treasure forever. Jason is a trainer I recommend to everyone who is serious about reaching your fitness goals!

Mark before and after

Entering the Jason Kozma workout program, I thought I had a vast knowledge of weight training and nutrition. Through Jason, I discovered a whole new world of exercise and diet that I never knew existed. I learned correct form in lifting, proper diet and which supplements were appropriate for me. As someone who has worked out much of his life, I can say that I have never been as satisfied as I have been training with Jason.

I looked forward to each session and have never left the gym more fulfilled. I lost body fat and increased my strength to levels I never thought possible. All while having fun and learning valuable information about the body and weight training. I highly recommend Jason Kozma over anyone on the planet, pure and simple because you will get the results you desire and find that working out can be fun as well. His expertise and knowledge will impress you as well as change your life.

arsine before and afterCan I give 10 stars??? I hired Jason after deciding to take my fitness to the next level and do a bikini competition. It should be noted that prior to hiring Jason Ive had nutritionist, and trainers. Therefore, i know what and who I am comparing Jason, his skills and abilities to. I trained with him personally and also did the online nutrition and exercise program for the times that I wasn't training with him in Santa Monica. The minute I saw Jason, he was pretty much on point about how much weight and body fat I would drop in the 8 weeks of prep ( that's all the time I had!) Going to the gym wasn't something new to me, however learning to do proper exercises in the proper order to stimulate fat loss and muscle growth was something i learned from training with Jason. He knows exactly how a female body responds to training, how it should be shaped and sculpted (which is an important factor when it comes to serious training) . His nutrition program was simple and easy to follow. I went on and got 2nd place for my first bikini competition with 9% body fat. Bottom line is Jason is a pro he knows exactly what he's doing. If you hire him you are guaranteed to SEE RESULTS, you WILL FEEL GREAT about yourself and your body, and you will get asked "WOW! how did you do that?

Jeff leg pressing 1400 lbs!

I trained with Jason for over 3 years. During those years I have never felt or looked better. As I have gotten older, the importance of living a healthy lifestyle has dramatically increased. The demands of work make the process even more difficult. However, Jason manages to find a program that works with anyone's schedule no matter how demanding. Besides organizing the very best workouts for me, he also organized a diet plan and followed up diligently to make adjustments to ensure I met my goals. Anyone who is serious about being healthy, feeling good and looking great should call Jason.

My only regret today is that I have moved to China for work and I cannot convince Jason to follow suit to continue training me.
