My husband needs some time away from the rat race and from us rats (his family). Any suggestions for a health or medical spa/resort where he could spend a week long vacation?

My husband is a healthy 45. Nonetheless, he is still very interested in health issues and how he can maintain his current level of fitness. I'd like to surprise with a week long stay at some kind of medical spa or resort where he could get medical tests that would provide him a baseline of his current health and would also give him information (probably in the form of lectures) on health issues. I looked into the Pritkin Institute but it seems to focus mainly on losing weight. However, I did like that everything was included, that there was a lot of structure to the day, and that different aerobic activity was scheduled for each day. Yes, price is a factor but I wouldn't mind splurging if I thought it was something he'd really enjoy and would be valuable for his continued good health. I'd also like to keep it within the U.S. but again, if prices are much less elsewhere, that would be great. Thanks for any suggestions you can provide!
