About Bodied By Jones
My name is Chris Jones, founder of Bodied by Jones Fitness (BBJ). I am a personal trainer and group fitness instructor located in Columbia, SC. I received my Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Winthrop University and I am certified in personal training with ACE (American Council of Exercise).
Fitness is my passion and it is evident in every session that I conduct. My ultimate goal is to teach the benefits that you can obtain when the mind, body and soul work in unison. Fitness is more than just an amazing body, it encompasses millions of health benefits from reversing sickness to increasing longevity.
My mission is to empower and enable my clients to reach a high quality life by providing multifaceted fitness programs. It's not always easy to stay in shape and dedicate time to your fitness when you're doing it alone.
At Bodied By Jones, I offer a degree of accountability and custom workouts designed to be fun, challenging and effective at producing results.

"You really pushed me to where I am and need to be."
"Chris, I didn’t know where to start because I have so much positive energy after working out. Ultimately, I was not sure if I was going to like doing the exercises but you made the exercises more fun and exciting for me to perform. You really pushed me to where I am and need to be. For that, I am grateful for you. I have been exercising with you for about 3 months, and what makes me very happy is when other people make great comments regarding my weight and how my clothes are fitting. I feel great because my body is changing for the good. I am able to sleep better at night. I have noticed my weight is decreasing as well as my clothes size. My clothes are getting more and more looser. Overall, I feel great. I want to thank my excellent trainer for believing in me and working very hard with me as well as extending your knowledge towards helping me accomplish my goals. Because of my excellent trainer, I feel great. I enjoy receiving these great comments. Again, thank you for all of your help, dedication and motivation." - Myra Grant
