Over 60 varieties of tea and shake flavors will be offered at Lansing’s newest health and wellness shop. Focusing on nutrient-dense offerings, Central Lansing Nutrition hopes to be a one-stop shop aiding in Greater Lansing’s weight loss and healthy living goals.
Owners Janet and Brianna Lightfoot are a mom and daughter business team. They went all in on the business after discovering what the healthy tea and shake lifestyle did for their health goals.
“We chose Lansing because it is really big with the college students. There is not really anything like this around here,” Janet Lightfoot said.
Aside from the consumable goods, the establishment will also offer free wellness profiles in a private room measuring weight, hydration level and body fat percentage with specialized scales. It will further offer weight loss competition events and a space for fitness networking.
According to Janet Lightfoot, all of its products are 98% pharmaceutical grade nutrients. Gluten free, dairy free and vegan options are available. The shakes are all under 250 calories, containing 24 grams of protein, four grams of fiber and 21 vitamins and minerals, Janet Lightfoot said.
Probiotic, fat burning, energizing and collagen beauty shots can be added to any drink. The owners are marketing the drinks as “very healthy” meal replacements that will leave customers feeling full.
For first timers, the health store owners recommend trying the brownie batter or birthday cupcake shake depending on chocolate or vanilla preference. The owners said the sweeter shakes are a great option for children as well.
“A lot of parents struggle with their kids getting nutrients. We put sprinkles on top and everything. They will love them,” Janet Lightfoot said.
Brianna Lightfoot said she dropped her body fat percentage by 10 percent since using Central Nutrition’s shakes and teas.
She hopes to host a yoga class eventually in the space in step with other Lansing small businesses like the Lansing Brewing Co. and The Crafted Bean.
The space was a former beauty salon. Central Lansing Nutrition installed a bar and repainted the walls. The lounging area contains three four-seat tables as well as two large leather chairs. WI-FI will be available.
To keep in line with the younger crowd, there are plenty of outlets available for phone charging at the bar and tables, Janet Lightfoot said.
“Our vision is for the community to be healthier and add this as an option here,” she added. “When you believe in the product you sell, it is easy to want to share that.”
The business will bring around seven jobs to the area. Once business picks up, Central Lansing Nutrition will feature a wall with before and after weight loss photos of its clients.
The grand opening will feature raffles for Central Lansing Nutrition gift cards, shake giveaways and more.
“We just want to bring in the community and to get people involved in their own health goals,” Janet Lightfoot said.
