This package is an addition to your Pritikin Program. In other words, after you make reservations for a one-week stay or longer at Pritikin, you may enhance your stay with this Heart Health Package.

This Package includes:

Carotid Ultrasound

This exam images the major arteries supplying blood to the brain and identifies at a highly sensitive location any development of plaque formation.


We will evaluate function of the beating heart, imaging noninvasively your heart muscle and valves of the heart. We will also define both contractile and relaxation phases of the heartbeat as well as function of the heart valves.

Body Composition Test

A scan that measures your percentage of lean muscle and body fat, and helps your Pritikin team set goals that enhance heart health as well as a leaner, fitter body.

IMT (Intimal-Medial thickness) Test

This test measures the wall of the carotid arteries, correlating with the effects of hypertension or the earliest identification of the atherosclerotic process. It may be used as a predictor of the development of this disorder in the remainder of the body’s arterial circulation, including the coronary arteries of the heart.

RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) Test

This study evaluates the capacity of the body to metabolize foods (burn calories) and assists in identifying possible alterations in lifestyle that can promote weight loss.

Personal Exercise Consultation

This consult will help you achieve the best returns from each workout. The focus is cardiovascular fitness, helping your heart become the strongest and healthiest it can be.

Personal Cardiologist Consultation

Includes a Cardiac Risk Assessment based on the newest American Heart Association guidelines.

Personal Nutrition Consultation

This consult will help you prioritize your dietary goals for optimal heart health. It will also pinpoint any personal areas of challenge, from restaurants to cooking, and provide smart, simple solutions.

Private Cooking Class

This private class, individualized to your personal needs, teaches hands-on skills for preparing healthy food. It can greatly assist in controlling blood pressure and cholesterol.

Take-Home Heart Monitor

Your new heart monitor will make it easy to stay in your target heart rate zone. It will help you get fitter faster, and will add motivation and fun to every exercise workout.
