What We Do

The site currently reaches more than 110 million annual users. To date, we've published over 16,000 articles that are filled with breaking news and actionable tips for men and women throughout the U.S.

Best Life Then…

Best Life started in 2004 as a print magazine published by Rodale Inc. It was a luxury service magazine for men with a circulation of more than 500,000 until its last print issue in May 2009. Galvanized Media's CEO and Founder, David Zinczenko, was the editorial director.

As a print magazine, Best Life covered health and fitness, finance, fatherhood, relationship issues, fashion, and grooming for men age 35 and over, with an emphasis on literary writing, humor, and in-depth research.

It established serious literary clout early on with impressive columnists and contributors, such as Jay McInerney, Denis Johnson, Jim Harrison, and Anthony Bourdain. At one point, Best Life put on luxurious events, like the Best Life Vail Film Festival and Best Life Classic Yacht Regatta in Newport, Rhode Island.
