Having a fitness instructor girlfriend definitely has its perks – and Alex Rodriguez, 48, knows that all too well, as he credited girlfriend Jaclyn Cordeiro, 44, who he has been linked to since October 2022, for helping him lose a super-impressive 32 lbs.
The former New York Yankee candidly told his fans about his health journey on Instagram on September 21st, which he said he embarked on after his family told him that he was looking “unhealthy” at the end of 2021. The post included a side-by-side comparison of how he used to look versus how he looks in the present day, among a few other pictures, and all we can say is wow!

“This is a vulnerable post, but I am going to share anyway because the last year of my health journey has been life changing,” his candid post began. “At the end of 2021, my family pointed out that I was looking unhealthy. Not what you want to hear, but I knew I wasn’t my best self.”
The baseball star, who was once engaged to Jennifer Lopez, went into more detail about some of the changes he has made since the end of 2021 which have contributed to his epic weight loss, writing: “It all came down to me making some key changes in my habits: 1. More plants, less red meat 2. Intermittent fasting 3. Night walks. Small changes led to big results, and I’m feeling better than ever.”
He also thanked the Canadian fitness instructor, creator of the JacFiit wellness community, for her support throughout the process, adding, “Thank you @jac_lynfit for being my guide and support. You coached me up to stay dedicated, motivated and improve each day.”
Back in December, a source told People that Rodriguez and Cordeiro had a lot of similarities, even suggesting that he had met his match, saying: “She may be as strict about her own regimen as he is. Alex and Jaclyn are both fitness obsessed and into exercise and body building.”
