A personal trainer named Jake Maulin is setting up shop at 555 Washington St., in Wellesley Square at the start of October, and he’s preaching goal-oriented fitness based on a combination of balance, endurance and power to help athletes improve, triathletes train and people to slim down.
The TriJake Fitness method is designed to help you “blast through preconceived limitations and feel empowered to do anything your mind can dream,” according to the upbeat Maulin. “I bring the total package of mind, body and spiritual strength.”
This personal trainer is relocating his business from the Back Bay, where he’s lived and worked for 7 years, and says Wellesley has similar traits, including a close-knit community and a high priority on health and fitness. Maulin’s location on the lower level of 555 Washington St., features 1,000 square feet of open space, though he says he will work with clients at outdoor locations, too.
Asked about CrossFit, Maulin says he’s a fan, but also thinks such fitness regimens are flawed in that that they don’t provide adequate rest intervals. “It’s a fine program, but I know a better way,” he says.
Maulin enters a crowded Wellesley fitness market, including health clubs like Beacon Hill Athletic Clubs, yoga studios like H.Y.P. and Laughing Dog Yoga, and personal training/pilates businesses like TeamMates Fitness.
