Pacific Nurtition & Wellness, a weight loss and wellness clinic, moved at the beginning of August from its old space on Birchwood Avenue near the hospital to a larger location in Barkley Village.
The new suite, located at 2930 Newmarket St. Suite 115, is about 2,000 square feet and includes a large room for physical training and group fitness classes, something the old space lacked, said owner Melanie Machado.
“Here we have full-scale physical training and we have room for all the equipment,” Machado said, adding that she also likes the additional foot traffic in the Barkley area.
Pacific Nutrition & Wellness offers individualized nutrition coaching and physical training programs for clients with diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and for those who have recently undergone weight loss surgery. Machado started the clinic in Edmonds in 2004 and opened the Bellingham office in 2007.
The expansion of the Bellingham office is a result of an increase in demand from both the local area and Canadian clients. The Bellingham office employs three medical nutrition therapists, and Machado is currently looking to hire personal trainers and yoga instructors.
