Lean, muscled, ever positive, and in his 60s, Ivan Ferran is the “poster boy” at Pritikin for healthy aging at its best. In Ivan’s classes, which include core and strength training and aquatics, guests discover muscles they never knew they had – and a new love for exercise and feeling fit.

Ivan has been an inspiring force at Pritikin since 1988. Film crews worldwide, most recently BBC News, have filmed his classes, which always resonate with his energetic booming voice. Nothing says “fitness is fantastic” better. “I love what I do,” says Ivan. “Before I came to Pritikin, I worked at hospitals, where it often seemed that people got worse – they were put on more drugs, for example, or they developed more sicknesses, or their fatigue was chronic. But here at Pritikin, people always get better. They leave us radiating energy and good health. Every day I go home happy because the spirit at Pritikin is always about happiness and hope.”
