GWS Podcast Episode 30
Joyful Longevity & The Future of the Wellness Lifestyle – with Roberto Arjona from Rancho La Puerta

Here at the Global Wellness Summit, wellness is our middle name — and we’re committed to bringing you the big picture and real story behind this $4.5 trillion economy.There are so many podcasts about health, fitness & nutrition that you can choose from, but one of our true points of difference is the historical perspective we bring to the conversation about this “wellness boom” that COVID just may help turn into a Wellness Revolution! 

And today’s guest plays an important role in the history of wellness. Roberto Arjona has been the GM of the very first destination spa in North America, Rancho La Puerta, which is actually celebrating its 80th anniversary this year. 

In the first half of this episode, Roberto shares the history of “The Ranch” and offers a glimpse into the lives of the legendary “First Family of Wellness” – The Szkekelys  – and how they continue to set the standard for future generations, continually bringing people to practice of joyful longevity. You’ll also hear about Kim’s experience at The Ranch (and the night she snuck away for a couple margaritas). Plus, a very young special guest makes an appearance to talk about some of The Ranch’s family offerings.

In the latter half of the episode, you’ll hear how Rancho La Puerta is responding to the global pandemic, including their plans for residences at Rancho La Puerta, and how they’re remaining vibrant even while they’re close.

Join us as we walk down memory lane — and into the future of wellness as a lifestyle.
