Looking for local holistic health outlets has been a challenge throughout my time writing for this blog. Looking for motivation myself, I have been even more passionate about my search for holistic food options. However, The holistic “gods” shone down on me and brought me the perfect place to tell you all about!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of interviewing Melissa Estes and Ryan Domyan from Embodiment Wellness and Nutritionlocated at 574 Buttermilk Pike in Crescent Springs, Kentucky in the Buttermilk Shoppes. Embodiment is what some would call a “nutrition club”, meaning they want to “bring good nutrition to community members”. The point of a nutrition club, for those not familiar with the concept, is to bring together people who share an interest in good nutrition and well-being in a social environment. While the concept of a nutrition club may be foreign to most – don’t let it scare you!
In a coffee shop setting, guests can find sanctuary inside Embodiment in the unique comfortable atmosphere. Entertainment is provided on the TV’s throughout. According to Ryan “we have to get to know you in order to help you”, an approach that not many wellness and fitness coaches have. They support the community in various ways such as getting involved with the Flying Pig marathon and have a marketing board within their store for local businesses to advertise. They specialize in fitness smoothies that can be used as meal replacements or in addition to a healthy diet.
Health coaches, Melissa and Ryan, along with four other wellness team members make it their goal to provide their guests with information on the importance of good nutrition and regular exercise to achieve optimum health through seminars, social events, sporting events, and other community activities. The real holistic health appeal to what they do comes into play in how they interact with their guests, in a no pressure environment, advising guests on not only health and nutrition but wellness of the mind, body, and spirit.
With three certified personal trainers on staff, they can accommodate guests of all fitness levels and body types as well as people in all processes of making the transition to a more holistic lifestyle. Their goal is to “fill the gap between desire and action, giving members the tools to help those that want to make a change for a healthier lifestyle. Providing solution, motivation, education and a friendly atmosphere where they can feel valued and supported with like-minded individuals.”
In addition to being open to all types of people, Embodiment also looks to cater to those with food allergies creating products that are lactose free and use all natural extracts and additives. They pride themselves on their personal relationships with their members as well as being a source of motivation and encouragement for all who are ready to make that lifestyle change. Their eventual goal is to open other facilities and create a larger business including a personal training studio, wellness clinic, smoothie shop and other facilities.
Every first time visitor gets a free smoothie and wellness evaluation so I encourage you to go check it out if you even think you might be interested, I assure you they will motivate you to make a change.
They are holding an open house this Sunday February 26th from 1 – 4 p.m. that I will be attending – hope to see you there!!
