Inspired by a lifelong passion for health and wellness, combined with years of experience in the fitness industry, Ken Meares has created products and services that have improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. In the late 70’s, Mr. Meares founded Body Designers, a company that supplied fitness equipment to health clubs before subsequently going on to build the first Gold’s Gyms. His next venture was SportsCare International (SCI), a sports medicine company focusing on sports related injuries in the early 2000’s. During this period Mr. Meares garnered extensive knowledge on pain management and inflammatory conditions which inspired the discovery of the unique, natural anti-inflammatory, PCSO-524, which he branded as Omega XL.

His drive for finding natural solutions for pain relief, along with his understanding of the many damaging effects of inflammation, led to the vision of creating the vertically integrated healthcare and technology company known today as Great HealthWorks, Inc. The company was founded in 2003 and fueled by the unprecedented success of the flagship product, Omega XL.

Mr. Meares has expanded the Great HealthWorks brand to include more than 70 exceptional physician formulated, nutraceutical and skincare products. He tirelessly innovates to improve the core competencies of the company which include: multimedia production, media purchasing, product development, distribution, and customer care.

In order to provide consumers additional value, he spearheaded, a real-time digital publication providing unbiased health, fitness, beauty and celebrity news. It serves as the editorial partner to Great HealthWorks.

Mr. Meares is known and appreciated for creating a dynamic corporate culture where every member of the company feels inspired and motivated to devote their best efforts to improving the health and well-being of their valued customers.

Finally, and most importantly, Mr. Meares is an active member of his community and dedicates part of his time to serve on the board of numerous charitable foundations. His contributions over the years have made a difference in the lives of children, women’s health, wounded warriors and multiple other causes.
