Melisse Gelula, Well+Good

Ali on the Run Show Episode 133: Melisse Gelula, Co-Founder of Well+Good

Date: April 17, 2019 at 7:51 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 0

“If there could be a dining critic, a theater critic…why couldn’t there be a wellness critic?” —Melisse Gelula

Melisse Gelula is the co-founder of the health and fitness mega-brand Well+Good. On this episode, she talks about starting — and growing — something you believe in, and how Well+Good went from an idea to fill a hole in the publishing industry to a brand reaching more than 12 million readers every month. She talks about Well+Good’s focus, and why it’s more than green juice and SoulCycle but isn’t weight loss or looking a certain way, and talks passionately about why wellness should be taken seriously. 

Big congratulations to Melisse and the Well+Good team for the launch of the Well+Good Cookbook. Head to my Instagram — @aliontherun1 — for your chance to win a copy!
