The foundation for all of H3’s programs are based off our 38-year award-winning Living Well program.  This weekly program is designed for the individual who is ready to make a true lifestyle change.  The program features a blend of experiences that represent the philosophies of H3 in the areas of nutrition and healthy eating, fitness and mobility, stress management and mindfulness.  The LOSE WELL 4 weight loss program is designed for those who are looking for a structured, long-term program to support sustainable weight loss and weight management.  The program includes the principles of the H3 Living Well program, delivered through a combination of small group sessions, small group fitness trainings and individual consultations, along with coaching follow-ups.

About The Internship:
As a unique destination spa, Hilton Head Health is the best opportunity to provide exceptional learning and training experiences for hospitality professionals. The curriculum will expose the intern to all of the H3 sectors of customer service. The intern can expect guidance and support from a highly trained professional staff with expertise in the hospitality field. Specifically, the hospitality intern will be supervised and mentored by the General Manager of Hilton Head Health.

Our intention is to extend and expand the intern’s education.  While providing opportunities for them to reinforce their strengths, interns will also address and strengthen weaker areas. Ideally, this will allow the intern to participate in an extensive learning opportunity.

The intern’s professional development is the emphasis of the H3 Internship Program. Realizing that the intern is not a staff member, responsibilities will be educationally value-added. Assignments will be driven by answering the questions, “How will the intern be educated in this area?  Will this give them a better understanding and render them more marketable?”  We intend for the intern to be exposed to the myriad of concepts and responsibilities that results in the program's success.
