July 7 – 14, 2013
This special version of our highly successful Weight Loss Program invites teens (14 - 17) and their families to discover together the strategies and tools for lifelong healthy weight.
Families will share a weeklong immersion in healthy living with classes, group activities and private consultations with experts in nutrition, medicine (for parents only), life management and fitness. The experience will include program features similar to our classic Weight Loss Program
, plus enhancements specifically for teens and family. A sample of the topics includes healthy eating on the go, making exercise fun, healthy snacking & eating for energy, healthy weight vs. just losing weight, building support systems and open communication. Various sessions will be for teens only, others for parents only. In addition, every Canyon Ranch vacation offers plenty of fun activities to explore.
The core of the science-based Canyon Ranch approach is individualized assessment that takes the guesswork out of customized program design. Adult participants benefit from a non-invasive Resting Metabolic Rate test to establish a reliable metabolic baseline; teens, for whom this test is not as accurate, will be assessed using other appropriate, non-invasive methods. Everyone who participates in the program will go home with a customized, detailed plan based on his or her actual needs, preferences and goals.
This program takes place in the retreat-like Life Enhancement Center®, where the minimum age is normally 18 – so this is an exceptional opportunity for teens to get a start on a healthier life. Families will take home healthy new food traditions, complete with mutual support and understanding – the right ingredients to help each family member succeed in meeting personal goals. Plus, as a special program bonus*, we offer each participant 50% off six, 25-minute follow-up sessions with a Canyon Ranch nutritionist, exercise physiologist or life management specialist (some restrictions apply).
