SoCal to Welcome The Ranch at Live Oak Malibu
This Fall

For those interested in a serious kick start toward healthy living, The Ranch at Live Oak Malibu (CA), opening September 2010, will be a great place for the wellness-minded to visit to get them closer to their lifestyle goals. Located on an historic working ranch three miles above the Pacific Ocean in the Santa Monica Mountains, the Ranch will feature an open-air kitchen, exercise pavilion, outdoor pool, spa, and upscale accommodations. The property will only allow 14 guests at a time for Sunday through Saturday stays where they will experience an intense daily physical regimen complemented by homegrown organic vegetarian fare prepared by executive chef Kurt Steeber, The Ranch’s “Nutritional Alchemist.” Designed to deliver results through a stringent “no-options” philosophy, the week-long program, priced at $5,600 for an all-inclusive stay, includes activities such as daily group yoga sessions, private afternoon massages, and four to five hour group hikes. “We designed the program to be short on stay, yet long on benefits,” says Marc Alabanza, program director of The Ranch. “Centered on physical endurance, balanced nutrition, and wellness in nature, this program is not just defined by weight loss, but instead provides our guests with the skills, discipline, and practice to make a lasting change in their lives.”
