The spa has gone through many changes in the years I have been coming here (since 1991) and it gets better and better. We checked in with Luis, who had called me the day prior to confirm. He checked us in and walked us up to the Woman’s Lounge. There we were greeted by Maria who gave us a quick... More

A "longevity center" with salt and fat free food might not be your first choice for a vacation...but think again!! This place is amazing! The chefs are incredibly creative, the choices for workouts are diverse (Zumba, yoga, spinning), and the spa is awesome (I had a terrific massage.) And every moment the Miami sunshine is just a step away. Loved... More

I have not been here for several years, but this experience just keeps getting better. Incredible results lowering blood pressure allowing me to get off most of my medications.

Pritikin is the place to explore. The medical team is well informed and takes the time individually as well as a team to answer general and specific concerns of the guests. Daily lectures by medical doctors and nutritionists are based on published research not fads. Exercise physiologists are knowledgeable and concerned with each guests individual ability and range of movement.... More

This place allows you to improve your health issues -be it cardiovascular, weight, diabetes, smoking- in a method akin learning a language through a "language immersion". Improving your health -probably by dietary change and exercise- is not a simple task, but because of the excellent facilities, personnel and other participants it becomes a very enjoyable experience at Pritikin.

My stay started on March 13 and it was the most stress free 8 days I have had in 25 years. With that said the inspiration I had when I left was incredible and the people I met while there (both guest and employees) are people I will never forget and in some cases will be friends with for a...

We have been going to Pritikin for a few years now. The first time we visited Pritikin our otherwise high blood pressure was normal, overnight! Literally, we were on bp meds for 15 years and learned how to keep it normal over the years, with NO medication. One on one doctor visits are absolutely the best ever, particularly Dr. Fruge!...

Pritikin is a way of life as we found out. The philosophy here is based on lectures, excercise, and food education. It was a very enlightening two week experience for my husband and myself. I would definitely recommend Pritikin to anyone suffering from a chronic illness as well as for people trying to improve eating habits and weight loss. The... More

I had some unique needs during my stay and accommodations were made without question. Without those changes in the program my stay would not have been as valuable as it was. I believe I can now make some real changes in my health. Thanks!

I spend one week at Pritikin. I am young and in good health, but I viewed this as a learning and prevention trip. It didn't hurt that I lost 5 lbs in a week (mostly water weight). The menu is no salt and no fat, but you get used to it. The lectures are super informative and there is a... More
