Designed to frame the picturesque landscape, the intimate setting features private accommodations and premium amenities.

Over 200-miles of hiking trails, an open-air kitchen and great room, certified organic farm, exercise and yoga pavilion, outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, and private treatment rooms for massages, further enhance the spectacular surroundings. Guests are in a sequestered environment with no cell and limited wi-fi service available to further aid in a mental detoxification.

THE PROGRAMS

THE RANCH SIGNATURE PROGRAM

This intense physical regimen is complemented by anorganic plant-based diet. Guests also enjoy a weekly cooking class and tour of our onsite, certified organic garden.

To further assist in calming the mind, The Ranch is a television-free environment, and, we recommend disconnecting from your electronic devices for a full “digital detox.”

Our Westlake location.  We also offer a 4 day version of the acclaimed week-long program. This program runs from Thursday to Monday and was designed for guests desiring a jump-start to a healthier lifestyle who are unable to be away from home or work for a full week and who desire to maintain more connectivity during their program immersion.

Just like at The Ranch 7 day program, guests of Ranch 4.0 will take part in 8 hours per day of vigorous exercise including 4 hours of morning mountain hiking, afternoon exercise classes and stretching, delicious organic vegetarian cuisine, massages and a cooking demonstration. Bod Pod and VO2 Tests are also included in your stay.

The best of both worlds — begin on Thursday at The Ranch 4.0 at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village where you receive diagnostic testing and  a daily schedule that includes group mountain hiking, low impact exercise classes, yoga, daily massages and inspired vegan cuisine served in an enchanting greenhouse.

On Sunday, transfer to the Ranch at Malibu to experience a total immersion into the signature program.

The week concludes with a cooking class and tour of our certified organic garden. Expect to maximize your results – shedding unwanted pounds, gaining physical endurance, clearing the mind and recalibrating your overall health.

GROUP RETREATS

For groups with multiple guests interested in doing a buyout of one of our programs, The Ranch is a memorable, rewarding and turnkey experience for a private group retreat, boot camp, group meeting or corporate event. The physical nature of our program, combined with the support of a dedicated staff naturally lends itself to promoting a positive environment centered on the encouragement of others.

The daily schedule can be customized to suit the needs of the group, including cooking classes with our culinary team, afternoon programming centered around yoga, longer rest periods or even a kosher kitchen, and much more.

DINING

The intense daily physical regimen at both locations is complemented by homegrown organic vegetarian fare impeccably prepared and presented by acclaimed Executive Chef Kurt Steeber, The Ranch’s “Nutritional Alchemist”. Steeber worked closely with advising nutritionists to create the all-vegetarian diet nutritionally and calorically calibrated to shed unwanted pounds and sustain guests throughout their stay. The Ranch is also accommodating for any allergies, and excludes alcohol, caffeine and processed sugars, aiding in your detoxification and revitalization process.

AM I READY FOR THIS?

Guests begin their journey 30-days prior to arrival through a series of suggested exercise, diet and healthy living assignments intended to prepare them for their time on-site.

I couldn’t be happier with the program and the staff at The Ranch. My experience here exceeded all my expectations. I lost 10 inches which I am thrilled about. More importantly, I have reset my body and have started myself on a new track to greater health. The food was amazing! Although I know I will not become vegan, I am excited to use some recipes given by the phenomenal chefs. Thank you to each and every one of you for your support, guidance, energy and enthusiasm. Spent two weeks at the Ranch from Feb 15 to 28, 2015. It was the best money I have ever spent. Hiked 140 miles (120 at the Ranch on 20 miles between the two Saturdays I had in Santa Monica), lost 10.5 pounds, reinvigorated my mind, body, and soul. I had left The Ranch being 100% ready to take on the world again. I wholeheartedly recommend The Ranch to anyone that has the volition to physically and mentally push themselves toward a healthier lifestyle.
