Jaime Morales is on a mission to make sure summertime fun doesn't catch up with your waistline.

Most people come to Jaime Morales with seven words: I just want to be in shape.
Using his Core Shaper training method, he focuses on “cardio, core, strength, and length” every single moment of his sessions to help his clients get in shape and stay in shape.
“It’s a challenge to stay super focused on fitness in the Hamptons during the summer season with all those rosé lunches and tasty treats from Round Swamp Farm,” he says. “I try to get my clients to look beyond just the summer and find a reason to say no to rosé at least once in a while. I don’t want the fall to come and them to feel they need to get ‘back in shape.’ I want it to be seamless.”
“My ideal day in the Hamptons is to wake up early and go to the beach with my dogs to meditate,” he says. “Then I’d get coffee from Jack’s and go to the gym for a strength with cardio and core workout for an hour with 10 to 15 minutes of stretching. I’d have lunch with friends at Dopo La Spiaggia in Sag Harbor. If I had time, I’d take a SoulCycle class or bike around town. I’d also stop by Provisions in Sag Harbor—I love their juices. It’s very healthy, and there aren’t too many temptations. You can focus a little more there than in most places.”
Morales says we all can be motivated by the beauty of the Hamptons by moving our fitness regimen outside. He teaches beach classes every other Saturday at Gibson Beach. “People love being outside in the summer,” he says. “Exercising outdoors is inspirational.”
