A new collaborative, interactive, multi-media, health, wellness, and fitness portal,, is now live on the Internet. The free, “members only” website emphasizes community and collaborative participation of its community members.

The site features information on all aspects of health and wellness, including family wellness, nutrition and meal planning, strength training and fitness routines, childhood obesity, wellness for older community members, aerobics and environmental health. The site operators conduct free live tele-seminars featuring guest wellness experts. Community members are provided with a free wellness guide, receive a complimentary wellness consultation during which they develop a wellness plan.

Other features include a special web interface where members can submit wellness questions, interactive forums, and an exclusive Internet radio show called “OHC Radio.” Programs are available “on demand” so community members tune in at any time.

Glenn Garnes, the site owner, was inspired to create the portal by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation initiative, spearheaded by the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation. “The Internet wellness community was missing an opportunity for meaningful education, collaboration and fellowship,” said Garnes. "Not everyone can join a health club, and places where individuals and families can work together towards wellness are difficult to find," Garnes noted. " offers more options for people interested in these things," Garnes concluded.

"There’s lots of information on wellness on the Internet, but very little opportunity to ask questions, and associate with others, for free," said Matthew Samp, an Omaha, Nebraska marketing consultant, and fitness buff. " changes all that in a very positive way," Samp noted.
