This year marks a significant milestone for Ideal Health Center in New York City, as it celebrates its 10th anniversary. Established in the heart of the city, with locations in the Upper East Side and Flatiron, Ideal Health Center has become a beacon of hope and transformation for those embarking on their weight loss journeys.
At the center of this success story is Taso Mikroulis, the clinic’s founder, lead coach, and a testament to the program’s efficacy. Having lost 45 pounds through Ideal Protein, Mikroulis’s personal journey inspired him to establish the first Ideal Health Center. “I rented out a small room in a doctor’s office in the UES with our medical director Akis Ntonos. We had only 2 clients and a lot of drive. 10 years later, I run 3 companies alongside my acting career. I used to get fired a lot when working for others,” Mikroulis recalls. His belief in the power of coaching and science as the twin pillars of successful weight loss is evident in his approach. “Weight loss is personal, and I can’t stress how important it is to have a coach on your side every week. Seeing my clients change their lives inspires me to do better in my life and encourage those around me every day,” he says.
Mikroulis’s endeavors extend beyond Ideal Health. He is the co-founder of Aion Aesthetics (www.aionnyc.com), a venture that complements his wellness philosophy. Additionally, he’s on the verge of launching The Kiki App (www.thekiki.app), a promising new project in the digital space. His versatility is further highlighted by his acting career, having worked with iconic figures like Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl and ‘Grease’ legend Didi Conn. Mikroulis has graced screens in notable shows like “Law and Order,” “GIRLS,” and Harlan Coben’s “Shelter,” showcasing his diverse talents.
As Ideal Health Center steps into its next decade, the focus remains steadfast on personal transformation through dedicated coaching and scientifically proven methods. It’s a place not just for weight loss, but for finding a new, healthier way of life. Mikroulis and his team continue to inspire and guide, one person at a time, proving that with the right support, anyone can redefine their health and life. He’s offering a free in body scan to all new interested clients to look at their biometrics.
