Looking for a Healthy Vacation? This place is the best! November 25, 2009 | 400 of 783 people found this review helpful
OK, full disclosure here. I do some marketing work for Hilton Head Health and they invited me to participate in their program so that I could experience what a guest goes through during their stay.
H3 is a weight loss / wellness resort, and the majority of people who come here would like to lose at least a little. That said, this program WILL help you lose weight, but it is SO much more than that I hardly know where to begin.
I was treated just like any other guest - shared accommodations, group meals and group fitness and lecture sessions - but it is such a personal experience for each individual, you never feel as though you're just part of a large group.
I thought I knew alot about health, healthy cooking and eating and fitness, and I learned something new every single day of my stay! The staff is top-notch - lectures and teachings are grounded in basic science, but include up-to-the-minute research in all of their presentations and handouts.
The program is based on the basics - eat according to the Food Pyramid and eat sensible portions; if you want to lose weight, you need to burn off more calories than you take in; exercise should be based on a combination of cardio and strength. The classes are varied and fun; no matter what your fitness level is, you'll find classes to try (and enjoy!).
The thing that sets this program apart is the supportive, caring nature of every single person on staff. From the minute you check in, you meet a succession of helpful, interested, caring professionals who want nothing more than to see you succeed with the program, both while you're on-site and after you return home.
If you are looking for a healthy vacation, a getaway with girlfriends, a couples retreat, a place to relax and rejuvenate, or you simply want to lose weight and feel better, you couldn't ask for a better place to start. H3 is not a pampering spa atmosphere, but you'll feel well cared for and safe throughout your stay.
Best business trip I've ever taken!I would visit this business again? Yes
