Pritikin excels in teaching the basics of a healthy life style, a good diet and fitness. The lectures on offer are excellent and make sense which helps to prolong the experience. We have turned our visit into an annual event and I am sure that the time spent here will be more than repaid in enjoying a healthy future and... More

I had gained some weight several years ago after I quit smoking and just couldn't seem to lose it. Pritikin not only got me started on a healthy eating plan by my initial 8 lb weight loss, but also increased my energy. After 3 weeks at home, I find it easy to continue on the plan and have lost 15... More

Great place to learn to eat healthy and exercise. New kind of taste in foods, no salt, sugar nor oil. New way of cooking. The hard part is putting the test at home. Wonderful, friendly staff and great lectures. Met alot of new people.

My husband and I came to the Pritikin Center to his the "reset button" on our lifestyle priorities. Many people think that places like this are advocating some sort of extreme program that means buying lots of special or unusual food, special diet foods, and lots of exercise equipment. This is the most "common sense" program, totally rooted in research... More

This place is unparalleled in its approach to eating and living a healthy lifestyle. I highly recommend it to anyone who is trying to kickstart a new way of living and looking at food. Kimberly, the nutritionist, is one of a kind--a superior resource to have! It is definitely more geared towards adults/seniors which made my stay as a 21-year... More

I considered myself healthy, active and a clean eater before arriving at Pritikin. Wrong. I got a real overhaul and learned additional health changing life style habits. It's Expensive, but cheaper than poor health, doctors and hospitals.

For healthy living this has all the bases covered. The accommodations are nice (though noisy with construction). The food was pretty tasty considering it has no added salt, sugar or fats. The lectures and cooking classes were, for the most part, very interesting and helpful. The exercise was geared to all levels and on nice equipment. They are blessed with... More

From the moment I arrived I felt that my overall well-being was their #1 focus. For the next 10 days, my medical needs were a priority along with my physical needs for individually prepared exercise routines throughout the day. The lavish display of food was Fresh! Delicious! & Abundant! The knowledge I learned from the M.D.'s and Ph.D.'s was life-altering!... More

No matter what they say, take two warm jackets to wear in the very cold dining room and some lecture rooms. If you are going mainly for the exercise program, and have some restrictions such as knee, hip, lower back problems, etc., you MUST meet with Frank for a biomechanical/musculoskeletal evaluation and get exercises that are right for you.
