Jason Smith started his personal training career in Galveston, TX in 1990. He received his personal fitness training certification through the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) while serving in the United States Air Force. Jason spent over ten years in the military and during his military service he trained part-time for several major fitness clubs throughout the Phoenix area such as LA Fitness, Pure Fitness and Bally’s Total Fitness. Training for these health clubs was an eye-opening experience for Jason. It was these experiences that led him to purchase and operate his own personal training studio, which is located in central Phoenix.
Jason’s passion and expertise is in weight loss/fat reduction. He created a 12-week body transformation program in 1999 that significantly changed body composition by decreasing body fat and increasing lean muscle through proper nutrition and exercise. His transformation program produced amazing results with average weight loss in the area of thirty to forty-five pounds per client in just twelve weeks.
In January of 2014, nearly 15 years after creating his 12-week program, Jason introduced his new 6-week program. The original 12-Week Body Transformation program had undergone a transformation of its own. With new diet strategies and training protocols, his new 6-week transformation program is achieving results that his 12-week clients experienced.

30 days ago, I was lucky enough to be chosen for this 30-day transformation. And finally, after 5 years of battling with my weight since my son was born, I am back in my skinny jeans! In such a short period of time, with Jason’s guidance, I have learned so much about fitness, nutrition, and myself. What I liked the most about the program is that it wasn’t just show up at the gym, workout and go home, it was so personalized.Patty LePore
