Healthy and Fit Can Be Contagious

I started working with a very busy real estate executive named Robin about six weeks ago who travels often for work, lives between two cities, Orange County and Los Angeles. It forces her to commute 4 hrs a week. Robin also has the typical demanding workload and a typical schedule for most executives at her level. On top of all these challenges, Robin’s goal is to lose 70 lbs to attain optimal health and fitness so her inner star can shine brighter.

The Goal To Lose 70 lbs

Robin and I met six weeks ago through a fortuitous introduction by one of my colleagues, Derek whom I’ve known and worked with for almost a decade. Derek works with Robin’s company to supply gym equipment to their real estate residential buildings. Robin addressed the need and want of a personal trainer to Derek so he recommended she work with me and coincidently, Robins office is in the same building as my private health and fitness studio, Acceleration. And so our working relationship was born.

Robin is no stranger to the demands put on the mind and body to lose weight because she’s done this successfully several times. However, I told Robin, “I will be the last and best trainer you’ve ever had! Not because I want to work with you for the rest of your life or that I’m cocky. But because my goal for you is to lose the 70 lbs and keep those 70 lbs off for the rest of your life!” Needless to say, she was a bit skeptical but excited for that possibility.

In the past six weeks, Robin has lost 10.5 lbs or another way of looking at it and my preferred way, is that she’s 15% toward her goal. Robin is shining and is starting to inspire those around her causing others in her personal and professional life to become motivated to get active. This is why Being Healthy and Fit Can Be Contagious. 

The reason why I am writing about this is that Robin was ecstatic about the responses she’s getting from others in her life. She shared a text message with me that showed the positive responses from several people in her office who she invited to go for a walk with her to the UCLA campus track. Because Robin is shining brighter, feeling more energy and wanting to share the positivity with others she was able to rally a small group for a rigorous walk.

Furthermore, Robins husband, who is for the most sedentary, has gone for walks with her over the past two weekends. She couldn’t be more thrilled to have her partner in life share in her health and fitness journey, but also begin that journey for himself organically.

Here are two of my healthy and fit prescriptions I give to all my clients.

  1. Share with others such as family, friends, and coworkers what your goals are and why this is important to you and how they could support you.
  2. Recruit others to be healthy and fit with you. For example, ask your spouse to go for a walk with you or coworkers to meet you at the park for a jog. This way you won’t feel like you’re doing it alone and you’re building a healthy and fit community around you for long-term success.

I am super excited for Robin and those in her life that she’s inspiring to be better in their own health and fitness pursuits. This is a clear example of some of the benefits one can expect when their inner star shines brighter through the pursuit of optimal health and fitness.

  1. I am Robin who Steve wrote about in this blog. Steve is an incredible trainer and coach and I consider myself so fortunate to have met him. I have worked out with trainers before, but Steve is special. He gives back so much more than the sessions we do. Each workout is unique and challenging, and fun. I have never felt better in such a short time. He really is changing my life, and for that I am truly grateful. Thank you Steve!

    1. Thank you Robin for this kind and generous accommodation! “It takes two to tango.” You’re a great addition to the Steve Jordan health and fitness team!!

      1. Joe you’re a champion! I am equally grateful because you changed my life too! Readers, if you look at my video on my homepage at you’ll understand why. YOU ROCK JOE!!!!

      2. Hi Joe-
        I watched the video; very awesome that you did this and congrats on your success. Here’s where the world gets very small; my late mother in law, Ann Kumari Paul Batra, went to Colby Sawyer College, class of 1941, after she graduated from Northfield/Mount Herman Prep School as an exchange student from Bombay, India!

  2. I am one of Robin’s inspired coworkers. Steve is not only motivating Robin but others in the office. Tonight we walked around the UCLA loop. Thank you Robin & Steve for inspiring me to stay active after work rather than plopping down on the couch! Way to go Robin! 😊💃🏻

  3. Robin,

    Keep working hard and never let up! Each day you get closer and closer to your weight loss goal. Most importantly you are making a lifestyle change that will forever change who you are as a colleague, spouse, mother and friend. Who knew that a meeting with Derek to discuss gym flooring material would result in an introduction to Steve and a total lifestyle shift.

    Steve, keep pushing Robin, she likes the physical challenge and doesn’t mind feeling like Jello after a hard session.

    Keep it up!


    1. Thank you Adam for taking the time to reply. And more importantly for your continuing to support Robin in and out of the office! I look forward to meeting you soon.

  4. Thanks for the article. My spouse and i have always seen that many people are desirous to lose weight as they wish to show up slim plus attractive. Nonetheless, they do not continually realize that there are other benefits just for losing weight also. Doctors declare that overweight people have problems with a variety of conditions that can be directly attributed to their excess weight. The great thing is that people who sadly are overweight and suffering from numerous diseases can help to eliminate the severity of the illnesses simply by losing weight. It is possible to see a continuous but notable improvement with health whenever even a minor amount of weight-loss is achieved.
