About Jake Steinfeld:
Jake created the personal fitness training industry and became the first nationally recognized fitness trainer in the U.S. He achieved celebrity status by working with distinguished clients such as Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Bette Midler, Priscilla Presley, Madonna, George Lucas and many others. His fee of $200 per session created a national buzz, and spawned an industry of fitness professionals to follow his lucrative and unique method of getting people into shape.
Jake has since authored several books and lectured to corporations and Universities around the country. He has appeared in several major motion pictures, starred in his own sitcom, "Big Brother Jake," and hosted his own "Body by Jake" television shows. His television involvement led to the creation of "Exercise TV" the world's only video-on-demand fitness television network. In 2001, Jake continued to set trends by founding Major League Lacrosse, now in its seventh year bringing talented athletes and avid fans together.
In addition to his entrepreneurial endeavors, Jake takes an active role in the community and fosters positive change amongst youth. In 1998, Jake founded the DON'T QUIT! Foundation, which provides DON'T QUIT! Fitness Centers to inner city middle and high schools. He also chairs the California Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, which set a record level of participation in 2008 with over 150,000 California students accepting the Governor's Fitness Challenge.
When Jake founded Body By Jake in 1990, he had a vision of finding simple, fun ways to inspire and motivate people to get fit and stay healthy. Today, Jake and the entire Body By Jake team continue to strive to make every person feel empowered to achieve their dreams.
