DARIEN, Conn. -- Embody Fitness Gourmet in Darien has moved out of the juice bar at Equinox Fitness Club and into its own space at 264 Heights Road. The space was formerly occupied by Franks & Frites.
“We are excited to be able to continue Embody's presence in Noroton Heights," said Gillen Bryan, founder of the company in 2008.
Embody got its start in 2008 at Equinox.
“We wanted to create a quick service café that served a diverse menu of healthy gourmet foods."
"Embody is unlike your typical juice bar. We don’t take a narrow approach to healthy eating as many juice bars do," said Bryan.
In addition to protein shakes, juices, and salads, Embody is now serving Intelligentsia coffee, a top brand. They sell their own brand of low-sugar organic granola, fresh-grind almond butter, and dessert bars.
“Stop in and try an unsweetened almond milk latte or espresso if you need a quick jolt before a workout,” Bryan said. “Great coffee can play an important role in a healthy lifestyle so it was a very logical extension of our offerings”
Embody also has locations in Westport and New Canaan.
