It has been a little over two years since we launched Greatist. And in 898 days (but who's counting?) we've become the fastest growing health site on the web, providing legit, fun, and relatable content on the daily. 

But where did the idea begin? We decided to create a Slideshare that tells the story of Greatist. Check it out, and learn how six-pack abs, confusing scientific studies, and a belief that we can change the way people think about health all played a part in turning Greatist from an inspiring vision to the most fun and kickass health and fitness site on the web.

What inspires you from our story? What do you think about six-pack abs? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us directly at @greatist!
