Short on time? Kick-start your health goals at The Ranch 4.0, a 4-day “weekend” version of The Ranch Malibu’s award winning 7-day wellness program at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village and California Health & Longevity Institute. A retreat ideal for solo travelers, couples or groups, this program is modeled after the same active fitness schedule as The Ranch Malibu, including four intense hikes to give guests the extreme results that are looking for.
“The Ranch 4.0 truly changed my life. I tell my kids, it’s a lifestyle, not a diet when they ask why I look at food labels or only buy wild-caught fish and grass-fed meats for them. And I am loving this new lifestyle!” – M.M.
Our highly knowledgeable staff tends to your every need and is trained in all aspects of fitness and rehabilitation to support and nurture, while guiding you to achieve personal program goals. Limited to 18 guests each weekend, together they participate in an active daily schedule consisting of 8 hours of low impact activity – centered around a breathtaking and challenging 4 hour group hike each morning – nap time, afternoon fitness classes and daily massage. Many of the activities allow guests to connect with nature’s healing elements, taking place outdoors. The intense physical regimen is complemented by a 1,400 calorie-a-day organic plant-based diet, served in an enchanting onsite greenhouse, with guests also enjoying a cooking class before departure.
Those who participate in this 4-day retreat also receive increased diagnostic testing. Through our partnership with the California Health & Longevity Institute, guests receive insightful medical testing of body fat through the Bod Pod machine and resting metabolic rate through the VO2 test.
“The Ranch 4.0 was the perfect way to start my year. It challenged me on the most fundamental levels, physically and mentally I was stretched, invigorated and educated. I had an incredible experience learning about my health, my body and my diet and I can’t wait to come back again.” – N.S.
During the long weekend program, guests experience the mental benefits of connecting with nature’s healing elements, and routinely achieve weight loss and drop inches, with many continuing to see results following their vacation.

“You can read as many books and watch as many socially conscious docs as one can pack in, and I really try to do my fair share of the above, but The Ranch is a place that puts those theories and clips into practice. I look at a plant-based diet with a new set of devouring not deprived eyes. I won’t look at food the same way again. The Ranch changed me on a primal level.” – H.R.
