Famed amongst celebrities and executives, The Ranch Malibu is a results-oriented fitness resort that employs a 'no-options' philosophy when it comes to health and wellness. The Ranch Malibu places guests into an active daily schedule of low-impact exercise and consultations with professionals to supplement a sustainable physical and mental transformation. Enabling long-term habit change in diet, nutrition, fitness and the opportunity to detox from sugar, alcohol and smoking, guests often see tangible physical results in weight loss, improved cholesterol levels, and increased energy.
The seven-night programme is The Ranch's original retreat, ideal for those looking to disconnect from the digital world and recalibrate from burnout through health and fitness. Available for one to four weeks, guests can choose whether to do a quick reset or a lengthier, more immersive lifestyle overhaul. The retreat offers eight-hours of scheduled wellness activities, including daily guided hikes, yoga, fitness, and a range of fitness classes focused on core, abs and weight training.
Guests can expect to leave the retreat slimmer, stronger, and with boosted mental clarity and energy. The Ranch is renowned for its fast and effective weight loss programme with guests shedding an average of 3-6% of their body weight during the one-week programme, losing fat while gaining muscle due to the limited-calorie diet and intense exercise regime. For those not looking to lose weight or focus more on other aspects of their wellbeing, the programme can be adjusted accordingly.
