The TJF MISSION & OUR STORY
We believe in the power of families working together toward a common goal. Our mission is to provide your entire family a place to have fun and get fit, all under one roof.
Triple Jump Fitness was created in 2012 with the vision of developing a pathway for families to “jump” from one fitness level to another based on age ranges and specific workout needs throughout their lives.
The concept was different from anything we had experienced before in our extensive fitness and personal training backgrounds, and we were excited to bring our own family-centered fitness philosophy to our clients.
Our fitness expertise is three-fold: early childhood gross motor skill development & family fitness, youth athletic performance for early teens and teenagers, and small group adult personal training. The Triple Jump experience is like nothing you’ve seen before.
Live Fit. Be Active. Feel Strong.

MEET THE TEAM
Kim DeMado, Co-Founder, Kids & Family Health Coach
“I love working with parents and kids. I believe involving kids in fitness classes is one of the best ways to build confidence. They begin to learn listening and discipline skills that will benefit them the rest of their life. Plus it’s FUN! As a working mom, I totally get that fitting in a workout is difficult. We offer a unique experience that combines a play date and workout, helping moms and kids get fit and make friends. Are you coming to work out or are you coming to play? Why not both!”

Tim DeMado, MS, NASM , Co-Founder, Personal Trainer & Youth Performance Coach
“I coach and train because one of the best ways to raise someone’s self-esteem and confidence is by putting them in a position to do something they didn’t think was possible. With the right work ethic and commitment this can be achieved physically through training. There’s a great lesson to be learned through setting goals, working towards them and ultimately succeeding in the fitness industry that transcends into all other facets of life. Many times this may include overcoming adversity in the process. You’re a great coach if you can make this dream come true for your personal training clients.”
Tim has been a personal trainer and performance coach since moving to Maine in 2004. He received his Masters in Physical Education from Springfield College in 2001 and later became a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
His training career began as a Fitness Program Manager for the Town Sports International Corporation (Boston Sports Clubs) in Boston, MA. While there he also worked part-time as a strength and conditioning coach at Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning in Winchester, MA. Upon moving to Maine, Tim worked his way up to become Head Trainer/Fitness Director at Bay Club in Portland.
In 2008, he opened his first fitness business, Athlete’s Training Solutions, in partnership with his wife. Throughout his training career to date, he has worked with numerous adult clientele and athletes from middle school right through the professional ranks. Most notably he has prepared two full scholarship athletes from Maine for their collegiate playing careers (football/softball) and is currently working with another (basketball).
