Work It Out – Written and Produced 1999
Los Angeles personal trainer Jason Kozma has 17 years’ experience in weight training and certified in personal training. Kozma’s workouts focus not just on the physique, but also on health, strength and overall well-being. To him, exercise is not an option; it’s a necessity. And it’s an excellent way to help get rid of the stresses of everyday life.
Here are some tips from Kozma for working out the stress, and working in good physical and mental conditioning.
- Use exercise to manage stress: Working out expels excess nervous energy–the energy bouncing around in your body with no place to go, causing stress and irritability.
- Start slow and steady every day: Discipline yourself to stay with a workout schedule by starting slow and steady.
- Work out every day: If you’re very busy, work out in the morning before your day gets away from you.
- Post reminders of your workout schedule: Everyone leads busy lives these days. It’s hard to keep track and keep on schedule. Remind yourself of one of the most important aspects of your day – working out – by posting notes around your house… on the refrigerator, makeup mirror, by the car keys, etc.

Weight Training – Written and Produced 1999
Weight training goes beyond mere exercise. It involves a workout regimen that sculpts the body into a desired form.
Strengthen your body and improve mental focus with weight training.
As a former competitive bodybuilder, Los Angeles personal trainer Jason Kozma has 17 years’ experience in weight training and is certified in personal training. His bodybuilding titles include Southern States Champion, Kentucky Derby Champion and Tennessee Valley Champion.
Kozma’s workouts focus not just on the physique, but also on health, strength and overall well-being.
Here are some basic concepts to consider if you’re thinking about getting into heavy lifting:
- Don’t expect fat loss: Weight training uses anaerobic exercises that are intended to shape muscles—not burn fat.
- Structure a workout to achieve your desired results: Every desired result requires a different workout. To maintain the current tone of your body, you can work out as little as two times a week. To increase tone, work out three to four times a week; to build muscle mass, a completely different workout schedule and structure is necessary.
- Work out at the same time each day: Over time, your body will come to expect the workout and will automatically optimize its energy level for that time.
- Train body parts equally: Don’t let your body get out of balance by only working one body part, such as your chest. Unbalanced muscles can lead to injury.

The Real Way to Cut Belly Fat by Jason Kozma, Personal Trainer in Los Angeles
This is the number one question! Everyone wants a firm flat tummy. We dream about a six-pack. And how about those abs of steel, just like we on celebrities or famous athletes? The good news is that you don’t have to spend hours in the gym doing crunches all day long to achieve the tummy of your dreams.
When it comes to fitness and body sculpting, there are no shortcuts. It’s a myth that crunches target your stomach to cut the abdominal fat. Exercises that target specific spots do not work. No machine or exercise alone will get rid of your stomach fat. There is only one way to get a flatter stomach, and that is to reduce overall body fat by adopting a healthier lifestyle. To start burning body fat you will need to radically adjust your diet and workout routine.
Changing your diet to include the foods that can help you get rid of that unwanted belly fat is a great start. The first thing to go is the junk and processed foods. By removing these “foods” from your body, you will cut the main source feeding your excess fat. Instead of junk foods for snacks, choose fruits, vegetables, or nuts. The health benefits are amazing and your body and health will thank you for it later.
- No White! You can lose the pounds but that lower belly bulge will never go away unless you stay away from all refined carbs. Cookies, muffins, cereals, bread and pasta, packed with unhealthy high glycemic index carbohydrates will stimulate your body’s insulin response that will result in storage of fat in the exact place you want to lose it. Stock your pantry with whole grains instead, like brown rice and quinoa, choose pastas from buckwheat, kamut and spelt. Just remember that it’s not carbs that are the enemy. The danger is in refined carbs.
- Switch to Olive Oil. Olive oil is great for cooking or topping a salad. It contains monounsaturated fatty acid, which is effective in lowering LDL cholesterol without affecting HDL cholesterol.
- Study your body. We are all different. Some people can eat wheat with no problems, while for others wheat products will create constipation and bloating. Pay attention to how you feel after you eat. If you have consumed something that makes you feel bloated, you have either eaten too much or you have eaten the wrong food for your body.
- Skip gas-forming foods. Some foods create a bloated feeling in your tummy. Try eliminating these gas-producing foods one at a time to see which ones do not agree with you. Wheat, dairy, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, sauerkraut, spinach, spicy foods, alcohol, beer, coffee, popcorn and carbonated drinks. Once you’ve identified the culprits, don’t include them in your meals.
- Snack on almonds. Almonds contain monounsaturated fatty acid as well as Vitamin E, which work together to keep cholesterol at bay. Almonds are also a tasty way to get fiber and vegetable protein.
It is also critical to incorporate the right exercise routine to chisel your belly. But don’t expect instant results, give it some time, flat tummies don’t happen overnight.
Some supplements can also aid in body fat loss. Your overall protein intake should be increased by eating lean meats like chicken, and fish. Fiber should be increased via vegetables and some whole grains as well.
Besides a planned healthy diet, a professionally designed exercise program by one of our High Performance personal trainers is vital to your success as well. As you know, smart and consistent exercise will not only burn fat from your body but will protect you from gaining it in the future.
Call or email Jason today to set up a specialized exercise and diet plan that will be customized to your needs to make you lose fat and maintain your new body.

Celebrity Personal Training Testimonials
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) Bo Goldman *Yes, this is the famous Oscar – winning screenwriter.
Hey Jason! STILL IN GA on work!! Had an amazing week… Booked a role on vampire diaries and I had two very sexy lingerie scenes! Everyone was complementing my bod!!! And I told them about you!!
Jena Sims, actress
I’ve played sports and worked out all my life and Jason has helped me get in the BEST shape I’ve ever been in … at 42.. with a broken back! I started with Jason when I felt blobby and injured, he tailored my workouts to my needs, and now I have 10 percent body fat and lean muscle. He can give you a diet plan to go along with your workouts and in about a month you will be the “after” in those before and after pictures you’ve been clicking on. I’ve worked with MANY other trainers, and it’s not even close. He’s trained Hall of Fame athletes, Hollywood actors and regular folks like you and me and treats us all the same. He pushes you with humor and you’ll notice the results immediately. Look no further.. you do what he says, you’ll get what you want. Kara S. NFL channel anchor, Manhattan Beach, CA
When it comes to getting into shape Jason Kozma knows just how to do it and fast. I started to look and feel stronger almost immediately after working out with Jason. He also played a huge role in my own fitness journey! Since working with Jason I have started long distance running and doing triathlons. I even ran in a relay race from Santa Monica to Las Vegas (344 miles) for a race called THE SPEED PROJECT. I wouldn’t have been able to do those races without Jason helping me build the strength I need!
