The History and Vision of Balance for Life Retreat
Balance for Life Retreats began as The Fit for Life Program which came to public attention in the mid-1980s with the publication of Fit for Life, a New York Times best seller which sold millions of copies. Harvey Diamond, one of the authors of the Fit for Life series of books and other media was a director of the Fit For Life Health Resort and Spa which began in Pompano Beach, Florida in 1993 until it was sold and became Spa Atlantis.
The Fit for Life program has undergone many changes since its early beginnings and is now enjoying a revival under one of the co-founders of the Fit for Life Spa, Mr. Harold Lebovic. The new program, Balance for Life Retreats is being conducted at the Wyndham Deerfield Beach Resort Florida, just north of Ft. Lauderdale.
In 2000 Fit for Life / Spa Atlantis program moved here until 2003.
Currently the hotel is a Marriott property.
During the early years of Fit for Life Health Resort and Spa, thousands of people came through our doors every year seeking relief from health complaints, needing to lose weight or just to relax.
Although the program content has changed in order to to keep up with changing times and new scientific research, we have never lost sight of the need to create a safe haven for our guests, a ‘home away from home’ if you will.
We promote and teach that every life should be filled with vibrant physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and a sense of purpose—and the practical tools to attain them – this is our vision today and for tomorrow.
