There’s a brutal boot camp that celebrities are flocking to in Malibu, and it’s called the Ranch 4.0.
An offshoot of The Ranch at Live Oak / Malibu, 4.0 is a four-day program to help visitors begin to live a healthier lifestyle, all for $US4100. Guests are taken on rigorous, hours-long hikes and complete various workouts while there, but it’s not all so tough.
Everyone stays in the gorgeous Four Seasons hotel in Malibu, and they get to enjoy the pools and spas during their free time. The program is popular with celebrities — Lea Michelle and Selma Blair have attended, to name a few.
This is what it’s like to workout in luxury:
If you're looking for a brutal workout in a luxurious space, the Ranch 4.0 boot camp is just the thing for you.
The guests are sent a 30-day pre-itinerary that recommends detoxing beforehand, which means cutting out items like sugar, alcohol, and caffeine to prepare.
Folks stay at a Four Seasons hotel in Malibu for the duration of the program. You don't have to totally disconnect from the world, because there's wifi.
After their morning stretches, they are then taken on four- to five-hour hikes. There are more than 200 trails for guests to hike.
Journalist Allie Jones from New York Magazine went to try it out, and said they were given plastic bags in case they needed to poop during the hikes.
She also added that the snacks were few and far between. On different days, they got six almonds, an apple, and four carrot sticks.
Minka Kelly and Mandy Moore went on a 21km hike and were exhausted, but Kelly thanked for the Ranch for a 'special, unique, detoxifying, and reenergizing experience.'
Connie Britton was thrilled with her four-day retreat of hiking, exercise, and eating vegan food, even though she had shin splints.
