For more than 30 years, the Pritikin Longevity Center & Spa has been a top choice for health, weight loss, and relaxation. "Pritikin is where the A-list goes," wrote BusinessWeek. More than 110 studies in leading medical journals like the New England Journal of Medicine document the program's results, including long-term weight loss; lowering of blood pressure to normal, medication-free levels; diabetes reversal; and dramatic reductions in heart disease risk factors like cholesterol and triglycerides.
Surrounded by 650 acres of lush tropical gardens, waterfalls, meditative labyrinths, championship golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools, and guest rooms with private balconies, Pritikin is not just a health institute; it is a paradise resort. Guests are immersed in a complete revitalization program featuring workshops on stress management, nutrition, women's health, heart health, and training in healthy cooking and restaurant dining. Fitness favorites include Pritikin's signature cardio, strength training, and core-and-stretch program. The spa features 32 treatment rooms and 100-plus body and spa treatments. Guests also enjoy delicious yet nutritious creations prepared by the institute's award-winning chefs.
