About Edward

In 1985, Edward Jackowski founded Exude Fitness and changed the way we look at exercise. A fitness-industry pioneer, Jackowski was the first to educate and warn people that the wrong exercises for one’s specific body type would actually make the body look worse. In the early 1990’s, Jackowski created his Exer-Form Chart outlining precisely what type of exercise with the recommended frequency and duration is needed for individuals looking to lose weight versus toning.

Now, that chart is becoming the universal blueprint to follow for everyone embarking on a fitness program. This in turn lead to Exude Fitness receiving the world’s first and only patent on exercising based on body-types.  Today, Edward’s exercise protocols and methodologies are being used as standards for the fitness and weight loss industry, as more and more medical studies are validating his findings.

To date, Edward is the author of seven books on general fitness, motivation, weight loss and golf and has helped create, direct and produce 10 fitness videos/DVD’s and motivational CD’s. Edward is currently writing two books; a follow-up to Escape Your Shape and a fitness book for parents/kids on how to raise a fit child in today’s tech world…What’s more, he has been featured by a slew of national/international publications, including: the New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Vogue, Marie Claire, Men’s Journal, Prevention, Tatler, Good Housekeeping, Woman’s Day, ediets.com, weightwatchers.com, WebMD,  forbes.com, and Salute (the U.S. Armed Forces Magazine). Furthermore, Jackowski has appeared on numerous shows and networks including: World News Tonight, CNN, Fox News Channel and Entertainment Tonight. He’s also one of few fitness experts to have been interviewed by Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer and Pat Robertson.

Among many of Edward’s achievements, he has developed educational fitness products for Avon’s Wellness Catalogs and was selected asAvon’s Fitness Guru of the year and was appointed the first-ever fitness expert and columnist for AARP’s Modern Maturity Magazine.  He was also selected as Zone Perfect’s first-paid spokesperson while touring the country with Self’s Workout in the Park Series.  In addition, the much sought-after motivational speaker performs seminars both here and internationally on a variety of business, lifestyle and fitness-related topics for both non-profit and corporate entities of all sizes.

For eight years, Jackowski was one of the ambassadors for The American Diabetes Association (ADA) in NYC as he performed pro-bono work, including being selected yearly as one of the key note speakers for ADA’s Diabetes Expo and has donated countless hours working directly with the Diversity Outreach African American Programs & Professional Education on behalf of the American Diabetes Association. While one of their Fitness and Lifestyle experts, Jackowski lectured and held numerous seminars on behalf of the ADA to schools, hospitals, church groups and community centers.

Currently, Jackowski and his staff are involved in preparing for a major study with the Department of Preventive Medicine at Pennington Biomedical Research Centeron the efficacy of his patented body type methodology and various health-related benefits compared to those that engage in traditional means of exercise.   Edward is also writing two new books at this time; a follow-up to his hugely successful tome Escape Your Shape and the other for both parents and children on how to raise a fit child in today’s tech world.
