OTTAWA — A nutrition club will open Monday in downtown Ottawa, offering customers smoothies, health shakes and energy drinks.
Noah Babcock, 21, of Findlay, will open the business, Get Right Ottawa, with an open house from 7 a.m.to 2:30 p.m. at 125 N. Walnut St. There will be giveaways during the week to celebrate the opening.
Babcock is a 2017 graduate of Hopewell-Loudon High School and attended a vocational school when he was in high school for CNC programming.
The smoothies, shakes and energy drinks have helped Babcock lose weight. The ingredients are made of soy-based protein that helps keep blood sugar at a stable level, prevent cravings and keeps a person fuller longer.
“One day I was looking in the mirror and saw I was overweight and unhealthy a year ago,” Babcock said.
He learned of Get Right Nutrition Club through a friend, so he tried the products. He started exercising and became more conscious of what he was eating.
He said the drinks helped boost his energy level and he went onto lose 33 pounds in the first month and a half. He also has become a Mixed Martial Arts fighter and volunteers as a football coach at Van Buren Middle School.
Babcock has been an employee at Get Right Nutrition Club in Findlay since February. He saw the success his mentor had with the Get Right Nutrition business in Findlay.
“I wanted to jump on the opportunity to help Putnam County get healthy. The closest healthy smoothie option is in Findlay and I wanted to to bring something here,” Babcock said. He wants residents to develop a healthy lifestyle that is sustainable so people can get long-term results.
There are tea options that have less caffeine than a cup of coffee that provides mental focus and energy.
“Meal replacement shakes are 24 grams of protein. When you come here you get aloe, tea and a shake,” Babcock said.
There are over 50 flavors for shakes and smoothies — with some flavored like candy.
There are pre-workout and post-workout shakes options available. A scale is available at the business that measures muscle, fat and weight.
Those who visit the business also receive a complimentary wellness profile from a coach.
Business hours are 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for October, Monday through Friday and in November will be 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday though Friday with days and hours continuing on that schedule.
