- About Us
With a return rate of nearly 45%, guests trust The Ranch to provide a memorable experience with changes to both their and physical and mental health including weight loss, increased mental clarity and energy, and detoxifying in an active, healthy and sustainable way.
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. Many guests start their health transformation during this period, gaining strength and losing weight before they step foot on the property.
While each person’s physiology, metabolism and general health is different, guests should expect results.
In our fitness and wellness programs, you will stimulate the mind and body through sustainable exercise which enjoying healthy plant-based meals of non-processed foods. This powerful combination increases metabolism, cleanses the system and offers a heightened sense of mental clarity and serenity. Often guests continue seeing results upon returning home, with many having made long lasting, impactful changes to their exercise routines and diets that were prompted by a stay with us. They break habits that have been engrained for years such as poor food choices, lack of exercise, excessive drinking and even smoking cessation. Medical improvement in cholesterol levels; higher HDL and lower LDL levels have also been noted.
The 4.0 program is often the first step towards a healthier lifestyle as guests detoxify the body, educate themselves on creating a positive shift in their habits and see pounds and inches lost.
In the 7-day program women and men routinely lose 3%-6% of their body weight along with substantial inches of fat loss and muscle gain along with improved cholesterol levels and gaining some mental clarity.
By combining these programs to create The Ranch 10.0, guests will increase the results achieved, including losing more inches and pounds of fat (on average, 4% – 7% of their body weight).
In each of our wellness programs, the best results usually come from the guests who participate fully in the 30-Day Pre Arrival Program, attend all programming, and stay in motion most of the day.
For those guests not looking to lose weight, they will still benefit from the mental clarity and an overall feeling of renewal that comes with our program. We can also accommodate their needs with larger portions and additional in-room food.
“I had a fantastic week at the Ranch! I came into the week in such a better place than I was when I visited earlier this year (both mentally & physically). The week was still super challenging but I am stoked that all of the hard work I put in between visits has finally paid off! I pushed myself on the trails and I was in the lead pack throughout the week with a smile on my face. It was also a great feeling this week to feel more like a Shepard to some of the “newbies” as well…encouraging them throughout the week and letting them know that things get easier…step by step! I am already planning my return visit so I’m looking forward to seeing you all again…even fitter!”
“I will be forever grateful to The Ranch for helping me kick a 10 year smoking habit. The staff was so supportive throughout the week and helped to remind me of my goals along the way so I didn’t give in to cravings. Nearly 4 years later I am still smoke free and have adapted a healthier lifestyle overall thanks to my visit!”
“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.“
“The past week has been incredible. The hikes were challenging and the food was absolutely delicious. I hope to take home many of the things that I have learned here at the Ranch and incorporate it into my daily life. Overall, AMAZING week!“
“I absolutely loved my week here at The Ranch. It was far beyond my expectations. I enjoyed everything: fantastic instructors, outstanding food, great accommodations, and wonderful massages. I feel healthier and stronger. I am definitely coming back. I met wonderful people at The Ranch, both the staff and my group. I hope this positive energy will stay with me until my next visit.“
“Thank you to the amazing team at The Ranch 4.0! This was an incredible experience for me. I was challenged, nurtured, supported, educated and nourished. I am leaving feeling great and proud of myself in what I accomplished. It was the first time in a very long time that I have been able to focus only on myself. Thank you for making that possible. The Ranch 4.0 is a special place and I will be back. Next time I will do the 7 days at The Ranch! P.S. I loved everything about the program.“
“I love the addition of 4.0! Being able to get away for a long weekend to rejuvenate and reconnect is so easy. It also provides me with an opportunity to recommend it to people who may not be able to do the full Ranch program. For regulars like me it feels like a great new tool. Of course a great joy is reconnecting with the beautiful spirit of everyone. Once again, thank you for changing my life for the better.“
“It has been a wonderful week. I came here not quite sure what to expect and I leave more relaxed, more fit, a little lighter with my body and my mind. The hikes were longer and more challenging than I expected but it was a great feeling to be able to step up and actually enjoy them. I have never experienced vegan meals before and everyone of them was delicious. I made many new discoveries about food and hot to eat healthier. The classes were fun, the massages delightful and the stretching class was so good! Love the staff. They were motivating, knowledgable and always ready to help. I will be back next year!”
“ I came for the hikes and a kick start to a new fitness plan and fell in love with the program. I learned so much and I can’t wait to apply it. “
“ I had the BEST time – a lifetime opportunity. Thank you! Thank you! My fiancé even wants to do it now. The staff was awesome, the workouts challenging but manageable, and the food was out of this world! I came home and threw out 2 bags of food that we had in the kitchen (half was expired) and went shopping. I made Meredith’s oatmeal this morning and even some almond milk. “
