I had a lovely week at Jumpstart. Julie is one of the nicest people I've ever met. She is warm and encouraging but also practical and calls a spade a spade.

I recently spent seven wonderful days with Julie and her husband Ron (very well- informed nutritionists), who offer a highly worthwhile opportunity to learn the simple steps necessary to get control of our health. The place is cozy, decorated in good taste; the juices and smoothies satisfy the appetite amazingly, and the long morning walks are invigorating. The yoga, pilates...

Thank you Kathy! You did so well here! And the credit goes to you. You walked, stretched, sweated and turned your food habits around. Congratulations! It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to seeing you in Costa Rica.

I am truly sorry your stay was not all that you had hoped for. If you were not happy with the decor, I can only say that we...
