Physician-Supervised Exercise Program
Our knowledgeable and caring team of physicians aren’t here to prescribe pills or recommend surgery to you. They’re here to help guide you and get you healthy by providing you with ways to make changes to your lifestyle habits in order for you to get healthy naturally. The Pritikin team of physicians, all board-certified in fields such as cardiology and endocrinology, are intimately involved in your entire experience. The average doctor’s visit outside of Pritikin is approximately 7 minutes, but you’ll spend over 45 minutes with your Pritikin physician. Now that’s personalized and attentive healthcare!
“Pritikin empowers people to live up to their fullest health potential,” explains Pritikin’s Medical Director, Dr. Danine Fruge. “Within just a few days here, they start to feel the wonderful benefits of the Pritikin Program, like increased energy and new freedom from medications, which really motivates them to continue their new lifestyle.”
Most of us see our doctors in their offices, but at Pritikin – you’re just as likely to find our medical director lunching with guests in our dining room, our cardiologist chatting with a group of guests after a workshop, or the endocrinologist stopping by the fitness center to check on a guest’s progress. This is “hands on” like most of us have never experienced.
Wellness Classes & Workshops
It’s not only our fitness team and physicians who are involved in helping you achieve optimal health. Our nutritionists, behavioral therapists, chefs, and yes- our fitness experts and physicians as well- all lead a variety of eye-opening lectures, luncheons, cooking school, outings and more, which will all help arm you with the skills you need to keep living your healthiest life upon your return home.
"But I Don't Need Physician Supervision..."
Not everyone who comes to Pritikin feels that they want or need physician supervision in theory, but the reality is that the medical component of Pritikin is what ties everything together, and is a huge perk of the program. It’s a very special experience to really connect with your favorite Pritikin physician, have access to all of them, and really be HEARD and cared for. The physicians ensure that the program is tailored to your personal health. And good health is priceless.
