Alex Rodriguez is opening up and showing vulnerability as he makes headlines for shedding 32 pounds. The retired baseball star took to Instagram to share a series of photos, captioning them with a heartfelt message, “This is a vulnerable post.” He went on to explain his family recently pointed out he looked “unhealthy” which motivated him to lose weight. “Not what you want to hear, but I knew I wasn’t my best self,” he wrote
Rodriguez attributed his remarkable transformation to his girlfriend, Jaclyn Cordeiro, who played a pivotal role as his guide throughout his health journey.
He expressed deep appreciation for her support, describing the past year as “life-changing” and praising her for keeping him dedicated and motivated.
The 48-year-old athlete also mentioned that Jaclyn has been coaching his ex-wife, Cynthia Scurtis, demonstrating her ability to positively impact their co-parenting dynamic and personal well-being. Cynthia has also achieved incredible physical fitness under Jaclyn’s guidance.
It’s evident that A-Rod thrives with the support of the strong women in his life. His past relationship with Jennifer Lopez was characterized by their shared commitment to fitness, as they often embarked on vigorous workouts together. In 2019, Rodriguez shared a video discussing their “fasted cardio” routine, illustrating their dedication to staying active and healthy.
Their former chef, Kelvin Fernandez, also revealed some of their dietary habits, emphasizing their preference for sparkling water, a variety of fruits and vegetables (despite Jennifer’s initial reservations about fruits), and a focus on greens like spinach, cucumber, and celery for nutritious green juice.
