Weight loss Clinic Comes To Lynnwood
By: Erin Freeman | Lynnwood Times Staff

The owner of a weight loss clinic franchise wasn’t going to let the coronavirus pandemic stop her from celebrating the opening of a new location – so she held the grand opening virtually.

Ideal Wellness celebrated the Grand Opening of the weight loss clinic’s new Lynnwood location on September 10. Owner Emily Countryman was joined by Lynnwood Mayor Nicola Smith, as well as two Ideal Wellness employees.

“We are thrilled to announce the opening of our 6th location for Ideal Wellness,” said Countryman. “We are enjoying getting to know the community here in Lynnwood, WA. Ideal Wellness is a weight loss and wellness center focusing on a proven weight loss program that helps clients lose anywhere from 10 pounds to hundreds of pounds and maintain it.” 

The COVID-19 pandemic pushed Ideal Wellness to celebrate the opening of its sixth location virtually. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to prevent most large gatherings from taking place, Countryman turned to host a virtual ribbon-cutting via Facebook.

Countryman opened her first Ideal Wellness location in 2011 after seeking to lose baby weight following the birth of one of her children. She lost her goal of fifteen pounds in four weeks using ShiftSetGo, undertaken with Ideal Wellness’s coaching. Her business’s success has allowed her to open multiple locations, driven by a determination to end the obesity epidemic.

“I had my 3rd baby in November 2012 and am proud to say I am still at my goal weight,” said Countryman in her testimony. “We have helped thousands of clients lose tens of thousands of pounds and I am committed to helping others lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle.”

During the ceremony, Mayor Smith recounted a personal anecdote, explaining how her daughter Emily visited Ideal Wellness in Lake Stevens losing 20 pounds leading to a positive shift in her emotional and physical wellbeing.

“I’m just so happy to have a business open in Lynnwood during this COVID-19 closure,” said Smith. “I wish you success with the new store and I have some experience with you…I have a personal testimony that this works for people.”

Ideal Wellness in Lynnwood is now open at 19723 Hwy. 99, Ste C Lynnwood, WA 98036, between Trader Joe’s and Orange Theory Fitness.
