Through a no-options philosophy, The Ranch’s weeklong fitness and nutrition program offers measurable results in a short amount of time. The invigorating, daily schedule features 8 hours of low impact exercise complemented by a nutritionally balanced diet of fresh plant-based fare. The intimate program, which is limited to 18 guests each week, begins at 6 a.m. each day for morning stretches, breakfast and a challenging and breathtaking four-hour hike through the Santa Monica Mountains. After lunch, guests enjoy a nap before an active afternoon filled with core and ab work, weight training sessions, a well-deserved daily massage and evening yoga followed by dinner. Guests can expect to gain physical endurance, shed unwanted pounds, tone up and detoxify in a healthy and maintainable way.
Designed to sustain guests throughout the demanding program, the seasonal, organic plant-based menu is both nutrient-dense and delicious. At 1400 calories/day, the cuisine features the finest natural ingredients, while excluding alcohol, caffeine, dairy, soy, processed sugars, diet sweeteners and gluten to aid in the cleansing and revitalization process. Many of the ingredients come directly from The Ranch’s onsite certified organic garden and a weekly cooking class teaches guests how to replicate their favorite dishes at home.
More than weight loss, however, guests come to The Ranch to unplug from their chronically busy daily life and recalibrate both the mind and the body. For those unable to disconnect for a full week, The Ranch offers a 4-day jumpstart program in partnership with Four Seasons Westlake Village and for a longer immersion, guests can opt for multi-week stays or try The Ranch 10.0, a combination of both The Ranch 4.0 and The Ranch Malibu programs and locations. www.theranchmalibu.com.
