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!!!

Although I thought I was doing pretty good, Jason showed me new ways and techniques to improve my technique, hence improving my physique and be able to eliminate my weaknesses in my exercises and body. He was able to work around my injuries, reassuring that I would be able to keep up with my goals. Jason also gave me great referrals and shared his knowledge of exercises and supplements with me to help me get closer to my ultimate physique.

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. : )

Dear Jason – My body stands up to NW Connecticut (thanks to you), up and down terrain, lots of stairs and a Czech director whose clinical depression makes me wonder if I would do better w/ a Hungarian*.   I miss your brand of pain, — it’s funnier…
Affectionately, Bo
(Jason Kozma is of Hungarian ancestry, we spoke of this often in our sessions)
*Yes, this is the famous screenwriter.

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.

When I was 53, I won the Venice Beach body building contest master’s division because of Jason.

I am a nurse by profession, not some disciplined, driven athlete. His heartfelt encouragement gave me the courage and his training techniques, that were, quite frankly not that difficult gave me THE body! If you do what he says, you will get what you want – plus!

Jason really cares about results for you, not so common in the training world I have found.

Don’t put it off, it is never too late to win the body battle, and with Jason’s help it will happen
sooner than you think!

Win the Body Battle!

Santa Monica Personal Training put me back on track! – Before I found SMPT, I worked out 6 times a week and ‘thought’ I was eating healthy; so when I couldn’t drop the inches I wanted to, I felt discouraged. That’s when I decided I needed to get an expert’s help & signed up for SMPT’s 8-week personal training & food program. Jason set me up with an amazing personal trainer in my area and a diet fit to my weight/height & weight loss needs. I was very impressed with the attention Jason gave me throughout the program – checking in on my diet, training & cardio on a weekly basis and making adjustments when needed to ensure ultimate weight loss. Week by week I saw my measurements decrease…In 8 weeks time I lost 11 inches! I feel so much more confident and love how toned my body looks. I can now slip into my jeans that I haven’t been able to fit into in 2 years! SMPT definitely helped give me that extra push that I needed to turn my bod & diet back around. – Kimberly

In addition thank you for introducing me to your trainer. He is amazing just like you.

“Deena has made such a difference in my life and my health. She has been instrumental in improving my appearance, stamina and confidence. She is very knowledgeable and careful to choose routines and strategies which prevent me from being injured during my workout with her. She has passed her knowledge on to me so that I can benefit when I work out on my own. Deena is very personable and makes my workouts fun, not work!”

James Bailey

I’ve been training with Deena for a little over a year. She is creative, motivating and just plain awesome. No two workouts are ever same. She’s made my body stronger and really focuses on those “problem areas”. She’s encouraging but tough and as excited by my successes as I am. I should also mention that she’s become a great friend…  A great friend who kicks my butt three times a week.


It is with with great enthusiasm and pleasure that I recommend Deena as a trainer. My teenage daughter and I train with her once or twice a week. We have been working with her for several years. Deena comfortably crosses the generation line for keep it fast paced and lively for my daughter and a bit slower for me.

She is very knowledgeable about fitness and always focused on our workout goals. We come away feeling like we have had a great workout and look forward to our next session.

Happy mom and daughter!


Deena is truly a pleasure to work with as a trainer.  She is extremely professional, timely and committed to meeting the needs of her clients.  I came to her several months pregnant, which would usually be challenging for a new client/trainer relationship, and she has been excellent.  She is able to focus on the areas that I care about most, is sensitive to my needs and has an encouraging manner.  She is very good at pushing you to your best level, while careful not to overdue what one’s capacity might be.  She is also very accommodating with schedules.  On top of it all, she is wonderful with my young 17 month old daughter, who she plays with while we train, so Mommy can stay in shape!  I would be happy to recommend her to anyone looking for a committed trainer.


My starting bodyfat % was 13.8. I was almost 190#s. Now I’m 168#s and bf% is 6.5. My abs look great!

“Kevin is fantastic! His excellent guidance helped me regain what was lost from a long hiatus from work outs. Kevin showed me the perfect way to use the weight machines to work smarter not harder. He created for me a regimen that was both rigorous and had steps that were achievable. I really liked that Kevin took the time to tailor the work outs for me, keeping in mind the way my body reacted. It was always a pleasure to meet up knowing he would guide me and push me more than I wanted, but just enough. For my health and the look of my body, I am thrilled with the results! Thanks again Kevin!!”

Tom Sylvester

“Kevin is an expert in incorporating weight training, cardio, proper diet, and lifestyle changes to maximize your training efforts and achieve your goals. He emphasizes proper technique and form to ensure safe and effective workouts. He is a great motivator and his non-judgmental approach keeps workouts fresh.”

Mike C.

“Kevin is a very thorough instructor who’s just as concerned with proper technique as he is number of reps. Not only is he a great trainer, but he’s an all-around great guy.”

" I think I look even better post-baby than pre-baby"

“There is one word that I can use to describe Barry and his personal training skills. PHENOMENAL! After having my baby, I was having the hardest time trying to lose the last 15 lbs that I packed on during pregnancy. With Barry’s unbelievable help those pounds just fell off. He really knows how to work with your body and capabilities. He individualized my exercises to fit my trouble spots and made it fun and exciting. Barry is a wonderful person and was super patient with my crazy schedule. I am so grateful to have had Barry help me. He did a fabulous job; I think I look even better post-baby than pre-baby. Who would’ve known?”

Even though I’ve played sports most of my life, I’ve never been someone who enjoys working out just to work out. But Barry’s personal training style, not to mention the results, have kept me coming back for over a year. Whether it’s one on one or in a group, Barry gives you the attention and encouragement you need to power through. And, he makes it a good time, which is huge. He tailors workouts to improve your particular body, he changes things up so you don’t get bored and he knows what you’re capable of even when you don’t. Thanks to Barry, at 30, I’m leaner, stronger and more toned then I’ve ever been.

"I'm in the best shape of my life"

Working out has never been something that was enjoyable for me but working out with Barry is like hanging out at the gym with a friend, except you actually get a workout, don’t get me wrong, the working out portion of the program is painful, but he definitely makes the trip worthwhile and I always have a great time hanging out with him. He’s like that one friend who just won’t let you get away with anything, no matter how much you complain. He knows that we are there for a purpose and he makes sure that you work towards those goals. At times I’ve wanted to kill him because I’m in so much pain but the end result is totally worth it. I originally started working out with Barry just to prepare for my wedding, but even though the wedding is over I’m going to continue my sessions with him because I’m in the best shape of my life and I’ve never had so much fun in the process.

Barry Ware is a kind, compassionate human being. He is a wonderful trainer who will help you reach your goals, and hold your hand in every step of the process. Being a client of his I am impressed by his vast knowledge and dedication he possesses. He has helped me in so many ways in reaching my goals. He makes working out an enjoyable experience because he changes up the routine frequently to make it fun, and to enable one to have continuous results. It his continuity in his personal training that makes all the difference. Because of his expertise and ability to motivate me to reach new heights in my workout routine, I went from 8% body fat to 5% body fat in a matter of 6 weeks. I have yet to meet another trainer who possesses the amount of passion, dedication, consistency, and continuity as Barry. If you feel like you’re stuck in a rut and just not seeing results do yourself a favor and train with Barry. Barry will help make you realize that you can do so much more than you give yourself credit for. You will be amazed by the results, and you will have a great support system as well. Barry has the amazing ability to motivate and encourage others. Barry really cares about his clients and, he goes that extra mile to be the support system that we all need.

If you are looking for a great trainer and person to work with then look no further!

My wife and I have gone through several work out routines and been members of countless gyms generally all ending with the same results – boredom! When we met Barry not only was he a great person to work with but he kept the routines varied and challenging. We saw immediate results from Barry’s instruction and the once dreaded trip to the gym became something we both looked forward to. If we hadn’t moved we’d still be training with him today. If you are looking for a great personal trainer and person to work with then look no further!

Derek & Elle

Barry is an excellent personal trainer. He varies the exercises so this is never a routine. He pays attention to developing both core strength and mobility. He is focused on you and your development, always professional and engaged. And finally he is a nice and fun guy to be with, and it is always a pleasure to train with him. I would therefore recommend him to anyone interested in maintaining and improving their physical condition.

Went Beyond All Expectations I Had.

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Brandon Lee who is a professional and dedicated personal trainer.  Prior to training with Brandon, I was training with another trainer who was moving and no longer able to train me.  I asked the trainer of all the trainers in the gym who should I look at, without hesitation the trainer pointed to Brandon and said… “Brandon, he’s solid from head to toe.”  That was in 2008, it’s been three years and I haven’t regretted one workout with Brandon.

Brandon has great knowledge of body mechanics, muscle function and is capable of determining the individual abilities of his clients.
His pleasant and positive attitude is a great asset to his willingness to work with his clients at their own levels.  He instills confidence and encouragement to make you want to work further and apply yourself more diligently.

His workout routines are interesting and constantly changed to challenge different muscle groups.   Balance and core strength are emphasized with special attention paid to proper technique to prevent any workout related injuries.  He is also very good at designing workout routines that address weaknesses. These indescribable workouts are matched by a wonderful sense of humor, and his vigorous drive is inspirational.

His expertise and persistence in these capacities have been helpful in my work as well as my personal life.

I am pleased to say that he would be an asset to any body fitness program. He came highly recommended to me and went beyond all expectations that I had.

The Best Investment that I Have Made in My Health and Well-being.

I watched Brandon for a number of months before I hired him.  He was one of the very few trainers at my gym that appeared to know what he was doing, and he took the time to interact well with his trainees. The other trainers seemed to always be on their phones or talking to third parties.

It was a smart move on my part.  Brandon is the first trainer I have used (and I have used a few), who has gotten substantial results without killing me. In  four months I have gone from 226 to 204 pounds, and I do NOT feel pushed beyond my abilities. I am not in pain after a session. And I am 60 years old.

Brandon is also very knowledgeable about movement, stretching, flexibility, nutrition and diet.
His skills have overcome my laziness.

He is probably the best investment that I have made in my health and well-being.

I Recommend Him to All My Patients

I thought that I didn’t need a trainer.  Boy, was I wrong!  Working with Brandon returned my physical health and flexibility to a level that I thought was long gone.  As a result, I now recommend him to all my patients who are seeking an improved level of wellness.  He has a global approach that incorporates nutrition, strength, and flexibility.
