We Know Life Is Busy, and We Have Practical Solutions to Optimize Physical and Mental Performance.
Kelly Jones MS, RD, CSSD, LDN
Kelly Jones is a board certified specialist in sports dietetics, and owner of KJN. Residing in greater Philadelphia, she began her career with nearly a decade as an associate professor of nutrition and exercise physiology, while building her sports nutrition practice.
As a nationally recognized nutrition expert, Kelly is regularly featured in outlets such as Well + Good, Runner’s World, Men’s Health, Insider, and more. She regularly appears on broadcast television, often representing brands who align with her values to showcase the ease of incorporating nutrient dense, plant based foods, into a busy and active lifestyle.
Kelly is passionate about empowering athletes and highly active individuals to optimally fuel their busy lives. Based on well-accepted scientific evidence on physical and mental health, Kelly practices with a plant based sports nutrition approach. As a board certified sports dietitian, mom, and former division I athlete who still loves to compete in races, weight train, and practice yoga, Kelly helps others integrate new nutrition habits with their training schedule in a realistic way.
While a decade as a college professor reinforced the importance of evidence-based nutrition practice, her personal experiences and work with disordered eating and eating disorders in the athletic population stimulated her desire to educate on the science of nutrition with a weight-neutral approach. A personal interest in and experience working with patients on nutrition for mental health encouraged the holistic approach that Kelly takes to improve both physical and mental health with food. Her messages as a media spokesperson, during speaking engagements, and in one-on-one coaching sessions focus on empowering others to trust their body while applying the science of sports and fitness nutrition to individualized needs.
In individual and group settings, Kelly works with everyone from collegiate and professional athletes to active kids and parents. While she specializes in performance nutrition for endurance sports and general fitness, Kelly has experience working with nearly all types of athletes and has consulted for high level organizations such as USA Swimming, the Philadelphia Phillies, and New York Road Runners. She was also the founder of the nutrition and medical fitness program at the Newtown Athletic Club, a nationally recognized, top three national independent health club.
We envision a vibrant community that is free from diet culture, so that children can fully bloom in all areas of life.
