I spent 11 days at Jump Start and it was truly a transformative experience. It exceeded my expectations in every area, specifically: weight loss / exercise and physical education / nutritional education / behavioral adaptation. Ron and Julie Odato run this business as a personal passion and it shows in every aspect of the operation, especially in the staff. If... More

I am a 44 year old male and do not eat fruits or veggies as part of my daily intake. In fact, I eat one or two vegetables at all. I knew going in that this was going to force me to consume something healthy. The juices and smoothies were easy to drink and most of them tasted good. I've... More

I went to Jump start NY to lose weight and relax from stress. I was very pleased with both my results - 15.3 pounds in 10 days - and the atmosphere. The staff was friendly without being overbearing. The juices and snacks were delicious. I would have stayed longer if I could have. This is a great location close enough... More

This was my first time ever trying a weight loss retreat. This beautifully rustic and historic setting was just the place. The staff were beyond accommodating, their friendliness was welcoming from the door.

Jumpstart Weightloss is THE best weight loss and exercise program I have every attended. It's life-changing. You'll come home feeling like a new person. I lost 8 pounds in 7 days, but even better the scenery of the Santa Fe mountains is incredible. Hiking through arroyos, and along ridges under beautiful, crisp blue skies. My room at the Four Seasons... More
