"Life changing and added years to my life."

"After trying every diet program in the world, I found Pritikin. I am 50 years old and overweight. Lost 5 lbs in first two days, and lowered blood pressure 50 points. Great food, great education, and great staff. I came for the two week program, and understand why 60% are repeat customers. I will be back soon, and bring more of my family members."

When You Change Your Mindset, You Change Everything

Most of us are our own worst enemies....that little self-defeating voice in our head takes over "I’ll never get healthy. I have no willpower. I've tried more weight loss programs than I can count, but can’t stick to them.” Pritikin will help you change your thinking and adopting a “can do” attitude- which will change your whole life- in no time.

The Thread That Ties Everything Together

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.

The Pritikin team of physicians, all board-certified in fields such as cardiology and endocrinology, are intimately involved in your entire experience. They're some of the first team members you'll meet, and some of the last you’ll say goodbye to. They'll oversee testing to determine your exercise limits, and work with our fitness team to ensure each one of our guests are challenged within their safe limits.

You'll interact with the physician team daily during small group workshops, but the private sessions with your personal physician are also vital to your success. Observes Pritikin’s Medical Director Danine Fruge, MD: “Outside Pritikin, in the ‘real world’ of medical care, we doctors have little time to listen. About seven minutes. Then we pick up a pad and write a prescription. We can do a lot of harm that way. At Pritikin, we take seriously the Latin meaning of the word ‘doctor’ – which is ‘teacher.’ We spend a long time listening and educating. And the payoff is priceless. Patients tell me, ‘I never really understood my medical situation until now… and I haven’t felt this good in years.”


"This Place Works Miracles!"

"I first stayed four years ago, when I arrived I was very over weight, had high blood pressure and stomach problems and was taking 14 pills a day. When I left, I had got ME back. I have been back every year, lost over 90 pounds and do not take any medication at all.
As well as helping get me healthy again, it is luxurious, the food is plentiful and tasty, and it offers the best that any five star hotel, spa can offer. I can't think of one reason why anyone wouldn't book in straight away and get your life back on track."
