Our program is based upon years of collective experience and observation, with ongoing regime adjustments to ensure maximum physical and mental results in a safe and sustainable way.

“With the help and encouragement of the staff and other guests, I was able to push myself past my comfort zone and achieve more than I ever thought possible. I left with a whole new outlook on diet and fitness that I know I will carry with me for life.” – L.G.
Whether you are a solo traveler, couple or group, guests participate together in an active daily schedule consisting of 6 hours of low-impact exercise. Following a breathtaking and varied 4-hour group hiking excursion each morning, guests enjoy lunch, nap time, an afternoon strength training class, restorative yoga and a daily massage. The intense physical regimen is complemented by a 1,400 calorie-a-day organic, plant-based diet. The program is designed to allow guests to connect with nature’s healing elements along with experiencing more unique modalities including a mid-week 60-minute sound bath. Guests also enjoy a weekly cooking class and tour of our onsite, certified organic garden. Pre- and post-program cholesterol testing and body composition analysis are also offered along with infrared and cryotherapy saunas to enhance your results.
To further assist in calming the mind, our luxury accommodations do not include televisions and we recommend disconnecting from your electronic devices to further benefit your mental health. For those that need to stay connected, we ask that you limit any usage to your private room which is equipped with wi-fi.
The Ranch Malibu is offered 52 weeks/year. If you are interested in our weeklong program but prefer a more personalized experience, separate from the other guests on property, The Ranch Private is a wonderful option.
“I was amazed at what my body could do. It was a physically challenging experience with mental solitude. It was just me, my body and my mind figuring out how to do what needed to be done. And before I knew it, there was no longer a need to ‘figure it out.’ It just happened. An enlightening experience!” – P.K.
“The Ranch showed me just how important it is to take more than a day or two for me – something I hadn’t previously done in at least a decade. I lost 8 lbs and 2 inches off of my waist at The Ranch. Equally satisfying is I have integrated exercise every day or every other day since my return.” – W.H.
Upon completion of the program, guests feel both physically and mentally transformed, logging over 60 miles of hiking, gaining strength, losing weight and inches, emanating a vibrant, healthy glow and regaining mental clarity and peace of mind. Lasting nutritional and fitness guidance from The Ranch experts will continue after departure to ensure guests sustain the benefits of their stay.
Nestled in nature with no distractions, The Ranch Malibu spans 200 acres in the Santa Monica Mountains, and provides the perfect setting to calm the mind, return to nature and focus on your mental and physical health goals during the weeklong program. Set on a historic working ranch, three miles above the Pacific Ocean, the sprawling grounds are designed to be rustic, yet refined and feature an open-air kitchen and great room, certified organic garden, pool and jacuzzi, Buddha Barn and massage “village.” There are also more unique health services and treatments offered including IV Therapy, cholesterol testing, a cold plunge pool and cryotherapy saunas. Guests are in a sequestered environment with no televisions, no cell service and wi-fi limited to their private cottages to further aid in mental detoxification.
Following the invigorating daily fitness schedule, retreat to one of 21 private cottages, each beautifully decorated with reclaimed wood floors, limestone bathrooms, and linen-covered queen and king-sized beds. The peaceful colors and serene aesthetic of your own private room will not only add to your relaxation and transformation but also support a restful night’s sleep.
“The Ranch was a perfect place for me to recharge and reset in a healthy way. The hiking, the food, the people, the full experience will be one I never forget. The mixture of rugged and luxury is totally unique. I am truly looking forward to going back again, as soon as possible.” – J.M.
