“Extraordinary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

I arrived worried about my health - I left with a whole new way of living. The food is excellent (once I got used to less salt), the staff superb. Nothing is too much trouble for the doctors, nutrionists, exercise staff, dining room ...

I particulary like that losing weight is a side-effect, not the main focus!

I cannot recommend Pritikin highly enough both for a visit, and as a way of living. I will be back!

I came to lose weight, but I now have a new lifestyle. The education is based on medical research. I am amazed about how much I have learned. Cooking school here has made me realize healthy eating tastes great too! The doctors, medical staff, exercise instructors, and nutritional staff work together as team so for the first time I have an individual blueprint for a healthy life.

If you're looking for a health & wellness resort/spa, this is certainly the place! The program is fantastic, the staff and health professionals are helpful and knowledgeable and it's amazing what you can achieve with the right tools in place. Pritikin provides those tools. Wish I could stay another 2 weeks. Lifestyle change will be a permanent one this round!

Having never been to any type of wellness spa, I was first shocked by the number of men that have come here to get, or keep in shape. For some it was their first time, some had heard from friends, and some come often to take care of their health. 75 % of the attendees in my first week here were men. The program is remarkable and while you can read all the reviews, until you actually hear ALL the lectures, meet with the doctors and other professionals here, you really have no idea of how this program can change your lives. It has mine! I am excited to now be finishing my second week and have learned so many things about myself and the way I eat, I will be forever in their debt.

Room Tip: Lodge 2 is the closest, with Lodge 4 a 10 minute walk but close to the Doral fitness center.

Just when you think a program could not get better, when I got to Pritikin I found that Pritikin had gotten even better. From the food to the medical lectures to the state of the art exercise equipment to the fabulous beautiful surroundings, it was all superb. With an active and extensive program and schedule, the entire staff manage to coordinate all services and kept me motivated and organized. When I left Pritikin I felt sooo much better than when I got there! I can't wait to go back again.

Room Tip: My lodge room was very large and comfortable.

There is nothing like the Pritikin Institute for changing your lifestyle and perhaps increasing your life than this facility.
Who knew that eating no salt,no sugar and no fat could lower your blood pressure significantly and reduce the medication needed to do so with the diet we ordinarily follow.
The staff is knowledgable,friendly and caring.
Where else are you able to sit and talk to a doctor at length about what health concerns you have? Where else are you monitored as you exercise?
Definitely give it a try.
