YORK-A former nurse is now helping others improve their overall health and wellness through better nutrition as owner of Ace’s Nutrition on Victory Boulevard in Yorktown.

Ashley Fetty opened Ace’s Nutrition two years ago after seeking a change from a career in nursing.

“The idea of owning my own business never crossed my mind,” Fetty said. “My father passed away in August of 2018, and I realized life was short and I needed to do what I loved, which is helping others with their health and wellness.”

Ace’s Nutrition, described as a community-based nutrition club that first opened in September 2019, specializes in healthy meal replacement shakes, energizing drinks, and protein iced coffees. There are more than 30 flavors of shakes as well as energizing teas that help counteract the effects of stress, poor eating habits, and certain kinds of acidic foods and beverages.

Wellness coaching is another aspect of the business.

“We also offer free wellness evaluations, and help customers who need help losing weight, building muscle, or just with overall nutrition,” Fetty said.

Fetty’s favorite aspect of the job is helping others achieve their goals.

“I love that I get to make a positive impact in the community,” she said. “Our mission is to provide great nutrition to the 757 area. I love getting to meet new faces, and returning customers coming in daily is my favorite part.”

Like many businesses, Ace’s Nutrition offered curbside pick up and delivery during the early stages of the covid-19 pandemic. Currently, the business offers call ahead orders for breakfast and lunches for other nearby businesses in the area.

Fetty’s future goal is to expand the business and open more locations in the area.

“We want to provide healthy options that are nutritious as well as delicious,” she said.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
