Who is Alan ?
Alan Morelli always had the urge to stand out of the crowd and make history. He first expressed his desire to become an entrepreneur in his twenties as the co-founder of an exercise products company and he is now the driving force of a wellness company that helps people get healthy, move and function better. The thought of becoming an entreprenuer striked his mind when he was in his twenties.
And he made that urge of his true by becoming a co- founder of an exercise product company and later a software company at a very early age.
From a very young age, Alan always liked sports, including track, wrestling, basketball, football, rowing, swimming and more. Alan is a true competitor, who has competed his whole life in many different sports. But he also loves to help others get to experience the benefits of exercise and participating in sports of all different types and varieties.
Alan began open water racing as an ocean lifeguard in high school, with his first event being a 3,000-foot swim. Alan continued to participate in ocean lifeguard competitions while attending Rutgers (where he also competed in wrestling), and graduate school at Georgetown, including as a rower in surfboat events where he won many consecutive titles in the mile row event. Since then, Alan has organized ocean swim clinics to teach open water skills and safety, while leading over a hundred open water swims.
“ Alan became interested in using some of the software knowledge he gained to improve the quality of clinical care by helping health care clinicians consider medical evidence at the point of care. This was what he viewed as the first step in helping clinicians to reduce sports training injury risks while increasing performance. ”
Alan has also competed in dozens of triathlons, beginning in 2001, including Ironman Australia, four USA Triathlon Long Course Age Group National Championships (finishing first place in his division in 2005 & 2006, second place in 2008 and third place in 2004) and representing the USA in his age group at the ITU Long Course World Championships in 2006, 2007 and 2009. Alan also won his division at the 2005 U.S. Half-Ironman Championships and has had top 10 overall finishes at the 2008 Rage Triathlon and 2008 Endless Summer triathlon and won multiple division titles at the Malibu, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles Triathlons.
On the business side, Alan studied both law and business at Georgetown University in Washington DC. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Science and a Doctorate in Law. He first expressed his desire to become an entrepreneur in his twenties as a co-founder of an exercise products company and, later, a software company. After helping to bring an innovative rehab product to the marketplace, Alan became interested in using some of the software knowledge he gained to improve the quality of clinical care by helping health care clinicians consider medical evidence at the point of care. This was what he viewed as the first step in helping clinicians to reduce sports training injury risks while increasing performance.
As the CEO of Optimis, Alan is the driving force of a wellness company that helps people get healthy, move and function better. Optimis has developed a wellness ecosystem for health care clinicians and fitness professionals, allowing them to safely communicate with their patients and clients and enabling them to give better diagnosis and treatment by providing them with data, software, assessments, video exercises, mobile apps and other tools that have already raised the quality of care for millions of people throughout the world. The company is also pioneering ways to help companies encourage employees to get active with an uplifting message that raises culture, promotes camaraderie and benefits everyone in the workplace.
Alan and the other company leaders are proud to provide this technology to millions of people seeking to achieve optimal health and fitness, as well as taking on their own challenge.
