I launched my career selling fitness products on tv thanks to Jake “body by Jake” Seinfeld. I first hosted The Cable Health Club and then it morphed into Fit-TV – which was later sold to Fox-TV for $500 million dollars.

Huffington Post writes – “I was an actress,” Forbes explained, “and in between plays and parts on soap operas, I’d go on commercial auditions. One day I walked into a room and someone just handed me a pen. And then they told me to sell it.

Steinfeld is the celebrity fitness guru better known to audiences as “Body By Jake” and at the time, he had a daily presence on a 24-hour fitness network. Overnight, Forbes became the woman to watch, when at the end of every hour, she’d pitch products like exercise balls and treadmills.
