"H3 was the perfect place to begin my transition to living a healthier lifestyle. The people I've met, the staff, the food and the lectures have all been amazing and I can't wait to come back next year! I feel more than prepared to take what I've learned here and apply it at home."

Today Show

For 38 years, Hilton Head Health (H3) has been recognized as one of the nation's leading weight loss and health retreats. Voted as "Best for Weight Loss" for the past five consecutive years by SpaFinder and "Top 5 US Health Spas" by Lisa Drayer on the Today Show, H3 is an exclusive resort delivering individualized experiences in fitness, nutrition and SELF (Stress management, Empowerment, Longevity, Fulfillment). Given our proven track record, H3 is often featured in the news for our long-term successful approach to healthy, sustainable weight loss.

A&E

Our most recent endeavor included the filming of A&E's weight loss docudrama - HEAVY. Unlike other weight loss series, HEAVY is not a competition, rather it's an in-depth look at the personal struggles, triumphs and transformations of twenty-two individuals who struggled with obesity.
