Lael Jones has been a certified fitness instructor since 1987. She earned her first certification to teach aerobics classes on her 18th birthday in 1987 in Kona, Hawaii. There she taught fitness classes while raising her four (awesome, amazing) boys. Step Aerobics, Spin, Bootcamp, Senior Fitness, and more- for over 20 years. She became a NASM certified personal trainer in 2009 and dove into one on-one-training. The National Academy of Sports Medicine's (NASM) high standards inspired Lael to open her own personal training studio in Old Town Tacoma, February 2011. She wanted to provide a private, professional setting to offer clients the highest level of safe and effective training. She has since gone on to earn specializations in Corrective Exercise, Behavioral therapy, Nutrition and Reactive training.


Greatest happiness- first family, then helping people become stronger- and that moment when a client says their back, knee, hip, shoulder or neck has stopped hurting as a result of core training.

Body Composition Analysis


What are you made of? Body weight matters…but it doesn’t tell the whole story. With a body composition analysis, we can identify your personal needs to help you become healthier and accomplish your weight loss goals.

Read More
What really matters to an educated fitness professional is the ratio of lean mass (muscle, bone, soft tissue) to fat mass. Health problems usually arise as a result of having unhealthy levels of body fat- specifically visceral, or belly fat. But the type of fat a person has (white vs. brown) plus the percentage of muscle mass attached to an individual is a more accurate indicator of true health. If you’re interested in losing “weight” then having a body composition analysis done on a regular basis will keep you in check- especially if you’re participating in a rigorous exercise program. Through the use of Calipers, measuring tape, scales, photos and the OMRON body fat tester, we will be able to determine whether that body weight is fat mass or growing muscle. Either way, we will keep a record of what you’re truly made of (besides sugar and spice) to make certain the scale doesn’t rule your world.

What our clients say

Lael Jones trainer/owner of Old Town Fitness Studio is the type of person who is naturally motivating, inspiring, and uplifting to be around.  She’s highly involved in not only personal resistance training, but lives a healthy and very active lifestyle which rubs off onto her clients.  Her studio gym is always very clean and the small environment is comfortable for people such as myself that are a bit uneasy in large crowded gyms. She’s very focused on safety and proper form with every exercise.  She’s not afraid to jump in and show you the proper and most beneficial way to perform any exercise.

I’m 38 years old and lived what most would consider an active lifestyle.  However, I had back pain when driving and sat on a doughnut while in the car.  I dreaded long drives, traveling on an airplane or anytime that I would have to be seated for long periods of time.  After training with Lael, almost immediately, I could feel changes.  After only two months, my back pain started to subside and now it is non-existent.  I feel better than I have in years and can feel my core continuously getting stronger.

I would recommend Lael for ANY age and ability level.

Thanks for all that you do!

Lael took my fitness and confidence to the next level with her intelligent, holistic and fun approach to weight training.

I’d always been athletic, but my running and strength have improved significantly with her help. Plus, she’s taught me so much! Unlike before, I can now walk happily into any weight room and lift right alongside the guys, even at 8 months pregnant.

I feel lucky to be her client and would recommend her to all!
