Jake has admitted that working out has become a bit of an addiction to him and he has to remind himself to slow down. For his physical role in Prince of Persia, Jake trained in parkour, sword fighting, and bulked up in muscle. Even after filming wrapped, he continued a 45-min, 6 day a week workout routine that alternated strength conditioning and cardio.
“I really just do it for myself,” he said. “It’s just an incredible thing to exercise, but for it to become like a meditative thing rather than just working out is amazing and that’s how it is for me.”
He finds dieting extremely difficult because he enjoys eating good food so much, but when he’s training for a role that requires him to be lean and muscular, he will diet and eat lean meats and vegetables.
