Who is Jason Smith?
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.

J.C. Almanza is a NFPT Certified Fitness Personal Trainer and Nutrition Specialist.
JC was born and raised in Chicago where he grew up eating large portions of whatever he wanted, eventually leading him to become overweight and out of shape. At one point JC topped the scales at 278 pounds. He found it hard to do his normal day-to-day activities at this weight.
Simple tasks of just tying his own shoes would leave him out of breath. You might think this alone would have been reason enough to make a change, but it wasn't. His life changing experience didn't come until a close friend of his passed away from a heart attack at the age of 32. You can say that this scared him straight! It changed his life! JC, at this point started his path to a healthier life. And he made a pact with himself to help others do the same. He obtained his license as a fitness trainer...and as a nutritionist.
Today JC is 200 pounds with less than 10% body fat. He's living his dream helping others reach their fitness goals. Fitness has become his life...and he couldn't be any happier!
Steely Davenport is a ACE certified personal trainer.
She was born in Omaha, Nebraska and grew up in the small town of Burlington, Kansas. Go Jayhawks! She relocated to Phoenix for an internship with Petsmart in their corporate fitness center, while completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Health Promotion. If you ask Steely why she moved to Phoenix she will tell you it’s because Arizona is not Kansas. She realized early on that her dreams and aspirations were too large for her small town.
She became interested in health and fitness during her first few years of college. Like so many, she gained the “freshman 30” before realizing something needed to change. She began exercising and eating healthy, which led to a positive change in not only her body, but also her confidence. She was hooked! It wasn’t long after that she started personal training, helping others achieve their fitness goals. It was during this time that a fellow trainer encouraged Steely to join her in training for a fitness competition. She hired a fitness coach and placed 3rd! Bodybuilding went from being a hobby to a lifestyle. She continues to do 1-2 shows per year with a long -term goal of turning professional by the time she reaches 30 years old.
Steely has been an ACE certified personal trainer since 2012 and says the best part of her job is helping others reach their fitness potential. She says there is nothing better than rekindling previous confidence in someone!
