Health and Fitness
Edan Gelt finds great strength and motivation through exercise and fitness routines. For her it is a great way to get out of the house and take her mind away from work and life stressors. She even began blogging about her fitness experiences as a way to motivate and inspire others who may be having trouble getting started with fitness or are looking to try something new to add a little spark and excitement to their lives.
Like all things Gelt does, she used her real-life experience exploring fitness options as a modern-day social experiment on how to become an influencer. In 2017, Gelt took off her marketing hat and visited 30 health and wellness institutions in 30-days to share how influencers can get started. Although she captured the hearts of up to 5K in under a month, she no longer blogs about her workout routines. Gelt continues to incorporate health and fitness into her lifestyle and everyday routine as it has made her so much stronger on both a mental and physical level.
