Maintaining personal health and fitness in today’s fast-moving, sleep-deprived society requires innovative strategies from the experts. Regent Seven Seas Cruises, voted the world’s #1 large-ship operator by readers of Condé Nast Traveler, will help guests achieve physical and mental well-being in 2008 with two European voyages featuring celebrated nutritional counselor and life extension specialist Dr. Oz Garcia, who will host “Wellness and Balance with Oz Garcia” – a special new Circles of InterestSM enrichment program.

Widely known as the “nutritionist to the stars,” Garcia uses one-on-one assessments and open dialogue to help his clients achieve personal health goals. Garcia’s strategies are customized to keep the body and brain in the best possible shape at any age, and his areas of focus range from diet and fitness to restoration therapy, including massage therapy, yoga and tai chi.

Garcia has worked with a variety of A-list film and fashion stars, plus many of the highest-ranking Fortune 500 CEOs. The best-selling author of The Balance and Look and Feel Fabulous Forever, Garcia has been featured in Vogue, Self, Allure, The New York Times and Sports Illustrated. He has also appeared on leading television programs including 20/20, 48 Hours, The View, and VH1 Rock Bodies, and has been featured in news segments on ABC, NBC, CBS and cable television.
