Meet Dr. Lashonda Jones PT, DPT, CPT, PCES

Ortho- Pelvic Physical Therapist, Personal Trainer and Pregnancy Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist

Hi! I'm Dr. Lashonda Jones

And if you landed on my little slice of the Internet, you’re probably a go-getter mom like me!

After 14 years of working as an outpatient physical therapist, who knew becoming a mom would bring me into the world of pelvic health.

As a mom of 2 who's had to heal my own Diastasis & recover from an unplanned C-section. I know what it's like to feel broken (when you're not) but also what it takes to feel confident and strong again.

Unfortunatley no one gives moms a manual telling us how to heal our bodies after babies. That's why I transitioned from the four wall of the clinic into the online space, so that I could provide resources, education and empowerment to the moms and women who need it.

You shouldn't be left to figure this all out by yourself. I'm here to provide you with the education, accountability and support YOU deserve!

History of Core Elevation Fitness and Wellness Inc.

The Husband and Wife Team

In 2009 Lashonda and her husband Johnnie started Core Elevation Fitness and Wellness (then know as CE-Fit). In addition to them both being full time Registered Dietitian (Johnnie) and Physical Therapist (Lashonda), they ran a mobile fitness company offering nutrition counseling, personal training, health fairs and boot camps in their local community.

Both being in the medical field we saw the need for more education around prevention, wellness and nutrition. We realized there are enough professionals in the health industry training only for weight loss but very few training people for LIFE. That’s what made us so different. We helped our clients and members in the community change their LIVES, not just waistlines.

Over the years the business grew into what it is today. Dr. Lashonda transitioned from the clinic and began offering virtual rehab and fitness services all over the world. She is now the sole face of the company with Johnnie still by her side in a supportive role. The mission still remains the same which is to equip and empower others to live a healthy and abundant life!
