Customer Reviews for Pritikin Longevity Center & Spa (7)

Trade in your typical summer vacation for Pritikin!
I had a great experience at Pritikin. I traded in my typical summer vacation so i could go for the two week stay. I've been a yo-yo dieter and a once-in-a-while exerciser for most of my life. My family and friends didn't want to hear about how I wanted to start a new diet or exercise plan because I'm so likely to give up. I went to the Pritikin Center for the support as well as the learning and great looking facility. I lost 8lbs while I was at the center and picked up a ton of great new habits. I also lowered my cholesterol by something like 20%! And most importantly I got the support I needed to commit to healthier habits. I highly recommend Pritikin!

So This is What it Feels Like to be in Shape
Although I am not a gushy person by nature, I feel the need to brag - I feel the need to smile, to show off, to wear less clothing. This is brand new to me, thanks to the Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa, the weight loss spa in Miami. Crazy as it seems to me, Pritikin was a weight loss spa, an adult fat camp of sorts, and yet it felt no less luxurious then a luxury resort retreat would. Fantastic, it was, to be losing weight, eating clean, chef-inspired Foods from the Pritikin weight loss spa. I'll be back- trying to push the boss to take us all there for a corporate wellness retreat at the Pritikin Longevity Center. That would be a treat!

After a lifetime of overeating and inviting health issues, I finally decided to try the whole "healthy living" thing. I went to "Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa" and I think it just might have changed my life... A middle aged diabetic with hypertension and a pot belly, I still managed to lose 6 pounds and get into an almost-normal range for my blood pressure! And, you know what, I actually liked the food a lot-- the nutritionists were not stiffs, and I took home some information with my new muscles. As far as fitness resorts, and all inclusive spa resorts go, this was #1. After a week of pretty fun fitness classes and good food, I come home fitter, less stressed, and happier. The facilities were great, check, the service was the best I have ever had, check, and Pritikin is amazing! If you could use a health vacation at a luxury spa resort (or a corporate retreat or executive physical, by the way) try Pritikin out!

Diet Detox
Tranquility abounds at this spa from the moment you enter the spa facility. Numerous services, warm staff and inviting facility. I love going outside to one of the outdoor pools or taking one of the classes or lectures. Very informative. That is why the high ratings. There are some negatives though> The Pritikin program has taken over an existing spa but are not Really in harmony because it dictates any food options. This means that you are forced to submit to the Pirtikin lunch and the reassurences about how "good" it is for you. It didn't taste good! The staff also "pushes" this lifestyle as the ultimate! I would like a little more relaxation and a lot less regimentation in a "spa". This felt more like fat camp! The only other negative is that you are now charged a parking fee separate from the spa services. This fee is up to $12.00 for the day! I find that outragious for it discourages local guests who purchase a day package (as I do). There is no discount or reduction no matter how much you spend at the spa.

Tops all around now
Have been to Pritikin in Aventura numerous times. The program is stellar although the facilities were getting a bit tired. I understand they have recently moved to the Doral and now the facilities are top notch too. Am looking forward to another visit in March!

Best weight loss spa available
Excellent for weight loss - lost 7 lbs. first week - which was amazing for me - and I've continued to lose a total of 18 lbs. once home. Food is great - plentiful, really!! Speakers, mostly physicians and medical researchers were beyond belief, plus you have 2 hours one on one with a personal physician to sit and discuss you medical concerns with extensively!! Facilities need updating a bit - but if you are really looking to lose weight, with medically sound information, this is THE place to go. Stop looking now and sign up - it saved my life, literally! Mixed group - older to younger, very heavy to those who return after weight loss for just a health revisit, several international clients, ultra-wealthy to average folks . . . fitness program based on your ability - and really medically supervised - stress test rating before you start - so your program is based on your ability and health - diabetics, heart problems, mobility issues, high blood pressure - all considered and monitored during exercise program. I am forever grateful for the knowledge that I gained from this week. Having been to other weight loss spas, I can say this is the best place in the country if you have medical issues and serious weight to lose.
