Q: Where did you get the name, MelioGuide?
A: The name is the combination of two ideas. First, our intent when we started MelioGuide was to provide a practical “how to” guide to building and maintaining healthy bones through exercise and nutrition. I knew that the word “Guide” should be in the name. Second, we wanted the guide to be focused on improving your health through exercise. We took the English word meliorate (which means to make better, to improve) and shortened it to melio. The result: MelioGuide.
Q: Where is MelioGuide located?
A: Our head office is located in Ottawa, Canada. We have warehouse facilties to serve you in Chicago and in Toronto.
