In just 5 weeks of Online Personal Training!
Being a dancer (hip hop, jazz, ballet) most of my life, I had always been able stay in decent shape. However, after college I wasn’t able to maintain this level of activity and settled into a sedentary lifestyle and bad eating habits. I needed a drastic lifestyle change, so I decided to sign up for Jason’s 8 week program and am amazed by my results. I’ve lost a total of 14lbs so far and have dropped 1% off my body fat every week! In addition to being more toned, I also have more energy and have learned the importance of strength training, cardio and eating a clean diet. Jason has been very motivational and has kept me on track the whole way. I couldn’t have chosen a more knowledgable trainer to help me achieve my goals and go beyond what I thought was possible. Every week I get more and more compliments from friends and family on what I have accomplished and I know that all of my hard work is paying off. I have completely changed the way that I eat and exercise and feel so much happier and healthier thanks to Jason. Thanks so much!
I've lost a total of 14lbs so far...
Jason is an amazing trainer! He got me into the best shape of my life, and gave me the foundations in exercise and nutrition that I carry with me for the rest of my life. A great investment into myself! I would most definitely recommend him!
Jason has the most professsional and effective personal trainers. I was very pleased with the results I obtained and the reasonable prices. I would recommend his services without hesitation specially if you want to take your fitness to a much higher level.
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!
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
Jason is a terrific trainer. His Online Personal Training program has helped make my body the best it’s ever been. I’m now able to do things that I could never do before. For instance, before Jason, I could only do one pull-up. Now I can do three sets of fifteen. I also have a six pack for the first time in my life! He completely changed my diet and is very well versed at how you can lose fat and gain muscle. He’s also very patient and professional. Highly recommended.
I also have a six pack for the first time in my life!
I found Jason and his personal training program on google while I was looking for a change and what a change he and the program have made. I’ve been on Jason’s program for about 2 months now and I have learned so much and feel so much better. I have always been an active person and had a gym membership since I was a freshmen in high school, but let me tell you, after one or two sessions with Ruben, one of the trainers, I had never been so sore in my life. My arms and legs literally were in shock mode. I came to the conclusion with only two workouts that the 4-5 years of going back and forth to the gym was a total waste of time. They always make sure I am eating well and feeling good. If I am ever sore or have pains in certain areas of the body, they modify workouts to avoid straining the area or areas more. I also went on the Jason’s online diet program and I lost about 8 pounds in two months. Before I started Jason’s program, I lost 15 pounds or so on my own. Losing the last few pounds are the hardest so that is why I looked to Jason and the trainers for help. Jason’s diet is intense, but following exactly and working out correctly, you will get results very quickly. To be honest, as a college student, it was VERY hard and yeah I did cheat here and there, but the program helped me a lot not only to lose weight, but to gain knowledge about fitness and eating correctly. People always think starving will get you to their goal weight, but they and I were wrong. Jason’s diet program taught me to eat right and make life changes to what and how I eat. After going through the diet program, I changed my diet significantly, cutting out most if not all of the bad foods I used to eat. If you want to make life changes, look great, feel better about yourself, and learn to live a healthier lifestyle, go to Jason now and get started. You will not regret it. I know, it’s hard, but hey, no pain, no game! That’s all! – Jackie
You will not regret it!
The results ARE worth it!
I just finished my first 8 weeks with Jason. I signed up again because I am so excited by my results, I can for the first time really see a new (smaller) me and I have renewed goals for a physique that I never thought I could reach. The workout is tough, but I love how I feel when I leave the gym, the diet is tough but the results ARE worth it! My husband is excited by the results too, he thinks he has a new “toy” now! I’ve worked with a lot of trainers some good, some not so good–I have found the best with Jason
Jason really knows how to get the results you want, bar none. He is dedicated to the process and truly cares about getting the changes you want or need. He is committed to helping you get there and is responsive to your personal needs at any time.
Jason is a true professional who leads by example. His expertise and deep knowledge are unparalleled, and through his long-term commitment to the art of fitness he has developed the mastery to train at the highest level. Jason is recommended to the maximum.
Sorry no before pic...
Jason is a life changer! I came to him with a typical expectation of a personal trainer. “Give me one more rep.” “You can do it.” Instead what I got was an expert who crafted a complete workout and nutritional plan customized to help me achieve my objectives. He took the time to help me define my desired state and monitored my progress throughout offering advice and making modifications along the way. Jason’s programs aren’t about quick fixes. They’re about lifestyle changes and the results are obvious and measurable. Two and a half years later, i can still reach out to Jason for advice. On numerous occasions, I’m applauded by fellow gym members for my transformation. And every time, I refer them to Jason.
Jason is a life changer!
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.
Better results than I ever imagined
I lost 17 lbs. in 2.5 months
If you’re looking for results, Jason is your man for personal training. He is is tough, but compassionate and devoted. He will do whatever it takes to help you achieve your own personal goals and encourage you to perform better than you thought possible. I hired Jason before my 40th b-day, and I lost 17 lbs. in 2.5 months, and I regained the tone I had from my 20′s. Jason motivated me during those times I wanted to cancel a session, and I am so glad he did! I would definitely recommend hiring Jason, and I would hire him again
If you want the best of the best when it comes to hitting your weight loss goals – you absolutely have to work with Jason!
He really helped me change my life!
Jason’s advice and especially his diet plan were great and helped me lose over 40 lbs. He referred me to a fantastic trainer on his team and the results have been amazing. He really helped me change my life!
Jason is a true expert in his field; he effortlessly taps into his knowledge and experience to deliver quality training, which, if followed correctly, produces quality results. And he’s fun!
Jason was a wonderful connection in my life who helped me get back in shape after my children and car accident. I was able to lose 20 pounds using his high performance system and at several points been able to get back into the shape of my life by just checking my old logs and touching bases with him. When ever I gain 10 pounds I just refer back to his system and if I follow the plan….the weight comes right off. Thank you for all the help over the years. your program has been priceless!
Your program has been priceless!
Jason is without a doubt the best trainer I have worked with – he’s motivating, has a sense of humor, but most importantly he produces results. I experienced my highest levels of fitness when I was stationed in Los Angeles and could workout with him on a regular basis. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to improve their fitness and appearance. If only I could return to a job in LA – I’d work with him again in a heartbeat!
I'd work with him again in a heartbeat!
Jason is a high profile trainer but that never stops him from answering emails and returning phone calls. He is an expert on the human body and if you’re willing to listen to him, together he can get you to where you want to be.
He delivers spectacular results...
Jason is an excellent, results-driven personal training expert. He has built a stellar reputation in the industry and brings a deep wealth of knowledge and hands-on experience to every meeting with a client. His motivational newsletter and weight loss challenges are hugely popular, plus he delivers spectacular results. Jason cares deeply about ensuring his clients get in the best shape of their lives, as well as develop a healthy, balanced and successful life style. I highly recommend his services
Jason is a great coach… Highly recommend him!
I worked out with one of Jason’s trainers for over two years and interacted with him and took his advice multiple times a week during that period. I would seriously recommend that anyone looking for an awesome personal trainer have a chat with him. Not only does he know his business, but he is just an all around cool guy. It is evident from the shape he keeps himself in that he really knows his way around nutrition, fitness, and the gym – but despite all this he is super friendly and accessible to anyone at whatever stage of their fitness journey. He won’t let you get away with any excuses though…he is there to seriously kick your butt into shape, and you won’t regret it.
He won't let you get away with any excuses...
I've lost 4.5 kg in 15 days
Hi Jason, I BELIEVE IN YOU thats why I’ve been following you. I saw a supporter of me in you. I respect you a lot and hence I want to inform you that in just 15 days, I’ve lost 4.5 kg of my weight, the credit is all yours. Jason, Thank you so much for being there for me. You are an angel…… Love, Pragnya
Very excited this week – finally hit the 20 lb. mark on Friday night (by Saturday after my workout it was up a pound again though). Either way – my body is changing, none of my clothes fit and I feel awesome. I’m getting my ass kicked during our sessions, but I LOVE it. Would never push myself that hard on my own and I appreciate it.Here it is: (again – very happy with everything and am getting super amped and excited with what I’ve been able to do). Thanks! I did – down to 146 as of yesterday. (Also, I’m in my size 29 jeans – down from a size 31 for the first time in 2 years – so happy)
Lost 20lbs so far!
I signed up for personal training with Jason when I was starting my first year of law school. I was feeling terrible about my body because I went from being in the best shape of my life after college to gaining a whole bunch of weight while working a stressful summer job for a judge. Jason assigned me to train with Deena. Deena quickly helped me get back on track, and I had lost fifteen pounds training with her. She was always supportive and checking in with me to make sure that I was meeting my goals. She also helped me to get a good portion of the muscle strength that I lost back, which made me look more lean and strong. I immediately had more energy and confidence. After working with Deena for a little over a year, I switched to training with James to better fit my schedule. I have trained with trainers since I was 15 years old as an athlete and none have been as technically knowledgeable as James. He knows how to push me to my limits, how to recognize my weak points, and how to push me to be better. I have never been as strong or as free of injuries as I am right now. James biggest strength is making the workout enjoyable, even when it is tough and my physical limits are being stretched. I have had wonderful experiences with both James and Deena and would recommend Jason Kozma’s Los Angeles Personal Training to anyone! Photos reflect 15lb fat loss
Lost 15 lbs
Prior to coming to Jason, I had been trying to lose 10 pounds for the last two and a half years. I travel 75% of the time for work and entertain clients over dinner and drinks for a good portion of that. Although I worked out fairly regularly, I found it hard to commit to a diet and finally gave up, eating when and what I wanted most of the time. When Jason and I met, I wasn’t that hopeful he would be able to craft a diet for me that could work while on the road. However, after committing to his plan, I was able to stay on the diet and exercise routine for almost 2 and-a-half months, losing 13 lbs during that time. I lost two pant sizes and noticed a difference in my overall appearance and energy levels. I was also able to transition into a new, less extreme way of eating that hasn’t caused me to gain the weight back.

“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!”
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.
