K2 Roots Moving to New Location with Wellness Club

A downtown State College juice shop is moving to a larger location, where it will be joined by a wellness club founded by two Olympic medalist wrestlers.

K2 Roots closed its location of three years at 109 S. Fraser St. on Sunday in preparation for the move to 114 S. Garner St., the former site of Bar Bleu. The location will also be home to Vitality Wellness Club, which was created by former Penn State wrestler David Taylor and Nittany Lion Wrestling Club member Kyle Dake.

The move will allow K2 Roots to offer longer hours and expand its menu that currently includes cold-pressed juices, smoothies, bowls and paninis, according to a post on its Facebook page. The shop is also owned by Taylor, who recently accepted the head wrestling coach position at Oklahoma State, and his wife, Kendra.

An opening date has not been set, but the business indicated in social media posts that the transition time would be brief.

Vitality Wellness Club, meanwhile, will be “dedicated to helping individuals achieve holistic wellness through relaxation and cutting-edge treatments,” according to its website.

The club will feature a cycle studio, hyperbaric chamber, Kaqun water therapy, infrared sauna, cold water immersion and compression therapy.

A variety of memberships and packages are available through the club’s website.

Taylor was a two-time NCAA champion at Penn State before winning three world titles and an Olympic gold medal. He also owns M2 Training Center in Pleasant Gap.

A four-time NCAA champion for Cornell, Dake has won four world titles and claimed bronze at the 2020 Olympics. He joined the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club in 2022 and will represent the United States at 74 kg in the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.
