Terah Stewart has something for everyone — 101 different products, to be exact. Terah, a Pioneer member, is the owner of Spot On Nutrition, a new, versatile, upbeat nutritional shake and tea bar in downtown Sidney. Spot On Nutrition focuses on the health and nutrition of each individual.
“This isn’t like work to me. I enjoy this — talking to people and helping them find what works for them,” says Terah. “There are people who can’t have dairy, or people who can only do plant-based, so I help them find what works for them.”
Health and wellness are important to Terah, who had three younger siblings pass away in their 40s due to heart problems.
He too had blood pressure issues that he couldn’t get under control and was being medicated for. He knew he had to make some changes.
Terah started taking tai chi kung fu martial arts classes at a location in Troy where there was also a nutritional shake bar, so he decided to give it a try. On just one shake a day in replacement of a meal, he dropped nearly 30 pounds — and has kept it off for nearly two years.
He began to think maybe opening his own shop was something he could do. He started researching.
Following the sudden death of a friend who had previously encouraged him to take the leap, Terah asked himself, “What if I don’t bring this nutrition to people?” Terah credits that friend as the motivation behind all Terah has accomplished so far.
He started looking for a location.
He went to downtown Sidney, parked, started walking, and stopped at 110 N. Ohio Ave.
“They wouldn’t let me see inside, so I was ready to give up and headed to my truck,” says Terah. As he sat in his truck, the owner of the building approached him and encouraged him to take the space, agreeing to remodel the building to his satisfaction.
“For every excuse I tried come up with, God gave me an answer, like, you have no reason not to do it,” says Terah. “I just felt like He was saying, ‘I’ve got your back.’”
Terah was born in North Carolina, raised in Columbus, and went to DeVry Institute of Technology. When he received a job offer in maintenance and equipment services at Honda in Anna, he relocated to the Shelby County area. He worked for Honda for 28 years and retired 21/2 years ago as a staff and team leader.
“I think everything my life went through brought me to this moment — I was a welder, fabricator, and blueprint reader, went to automotive school, worked for Goodyear, went back to school and worked for Honda; I was in maintenance and oversaw 16 technicians and handled budgets, repairs, quotes, and contracts, and now all of a sudden I see how that all followed me,” says Terah.
“Everything just fell into place.”
He opened the doors to Spot On Nutrition at the end of July 2020 and, despite the pandemic, hasn’t looked back.
“The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you find your purpose,” says Terah. “It took me 62 years to realize my purpose.”
Terah’s goal is to help people feel better about themselves by giving them the right nutrition.
“It doesn’t have to do with age, how young you are or how old you are; it doesn’t matter what color you are — it’s about knowing what you’re supposed to do and stepping into that role,” says Terah.
“This is my way of giving back. My goal is to make sure everyone that comes in has a good experience and feels good about themselves.”
