More home gym equipment acquisitions:

Got two 65 lbs dumbbells from LetGo

Got a curling bar with screw collars and 95 lbs in plates from Craigslist

Dumbbell stand from powerblock

Pricey, everyone was looking for equipment!

I don’t really have space to add more stuff like a rack, cage or machine.  It’s a shared condo garage and I have 2 cars so no empty spaces.  I take my stuff out into the middle of the garage to train and then move it back.  One of the homeowners had moved out so I was able to use his parking spaces up until June.

Anybody that wants to trade their house with a garage for my condo in Santa Monica let me know!

Sign up for online personal training and I’ll design a training program for your home gym (and fix your diet)

Jason’s a really great trainer. I do the virtual personal training program because I know form, I just don’t have the knowledge to build my own plan. Jason’s always been very responsive whenever I have questions. He doesn’t give you a cookie-cutter plan; I have a few physical limitations and my gym doesn’t have the widest variety of equipment and he was very understanding and helped find the right exercise substitutions. I found the diet plan really helpful because it’s flexible enough where I can try different foods, but specific enough about how much and when to eat so I actually see results. Be clear with your goals and stick to what he says and you’ll definitely be happy with where you are in just a few months.

If you’re looking for rapid transformation success Jason Kozma is the best personal trainer available! Very happy with the guidance, accountability, and humor he provided during our training time together. He genuinely cares about getting his clients the best results possible. If you are not in the LA area he also has an excellent online personal training program. Highly recommend.

I live in Chicago so I used Jason's online personal training. It was a great experience especially for the price. He would monitor my workouts each week and let me know if I should be able to go heavier on an exercise based on everything else I was doing. He'd also review my recorded diet and tell me where to tweak things. He was also good about reminding me to update my weight and progress pics, and he'd adjust the workouts or diet based on that. He was honest about how much weight/muscle I should expect to gain and didn't try to make huge promises just to get business.
