The “Juice” is loose
Power-Up Weight Loss and Juice Bar now open
By Macy Cochran
Inside of the Tryon Health and Fitness Club in Tryon, Bev Cook has opened Power-Up Weight Loss and Juice Bar, transforming the gym’s spinner cycling room into a pre- and post-workout space to energize and re-energize.
With over 25 years of experience with nutrition and health by heading up a lifestyle center and franchising many others, Cook has traveling across America to host cooking classes, juice fasts and detox programs, as well as using her information of nutrition and health to teach other aspects of keeping a healthy lifestyle. Her nametag even says, “lifestyle coach.”
“I juiced at home for years and took vegan cooking classes with my husband during our traveling years,” Cook says. “When we retired, I still juiced but always had in the back of my mind that I wanted my own juice bar. We’ve done well so far with the gym members, and I think it’ll be successful.”
The juice bar offers a large variety of fresh juices and smoothies which Cook formulates from behind the bar. In addition, Power-Up Weight Loss and Juice Bar offers a weight loss program and support classes that will be open throughout the year. The 8-week weight loss class incorporates juices and smoothies, as well as Cook’s guidance in grocery shopping, recipes to make at home, and she even helps each individual person by monitoring their weight and working with them closely.
For those working toward a nutritious lifestyle, juices and smoothies are provided before and after workouts, and are a beneficial start to transforming one’s life and body, mentally and physically.
If you’re interested in making juices and smoothies at home, there are take home packs available as well.
