"Sitting on top of a knoll with extraordinary unobstructed mountain views, the Romper Room is a perfect complement to existing exercise facilities," said Marc Alabanza, Program Director for The Ranch at Live Oak / Malibu. "With the increased space we can expand the types of classes available to guests and make every afternoon program different than the day before."
The Romper Room also features a Snack Bar where Nutrition Alchemist Kurt Steeber prepares fresh detox smoothies and protein snacks to reenergize the guests during afternoon classes as well as maintain a high metabolic burn rate. Limited to just 15 people each week, The Ranch provides individuals with an intense fitness and wellness routine intended to boost endurance and generate substantial weight loss. Guests typically lose five percent of their body weight during the program which combines four to five hours of group mountain hiking and an afternoon filled with pool classes, core work, weights, daily group yoga sessions and a private afternoon massage each day. The program is a minimum of one week and priced at $5600/person for a week-long stay.
