The Ranch

As a fitness fanatic who loves being in nature, for me this is a dream of a client with an exciting story to tell. The Ranch Malibu is legendary for offering a health and wellbeing immersion like no other and their new outpost in Italy brings something completely fresh to Europe. Designed to completely recalibrate the mind as well as energize the body, this is not just a luxury bootcamp, but a new approach to living.

A luxury healthy lifestyle company, The Ranch features acclaimed, results-oriented fitness and wellness retreats, with a focus on being in nature. Their ‘no-options’ schedules include long morning mountain hikes, afternoon strength and core training classes, yoga and daily massage, complemented by a nutrient-dense, plant-based diet.

Since husband and wife team Alex and Sue Glassock launched The Ranch Malibu in September 2010, their goal has been to deliver sustainable results by providing guests with the skills, discipline and practice to make lasting changes. They’ve now expanded to include The Ranch Private, The Ranch 9.0 and most recently The Ranch Italy at Palazzo Fiuggi Wellness Medical Retreat, which launches in spring 2022.

Beginning May 15, this will be The Ranch’s first permanent international programme. The new week-long stay overlays The Ranch Malibu’s signature programme into this innovative retreat centre, located in one of Italy’s richest naturalistic towns, known for its healing waters.

Similar to Malibu, hikes will be measured by time rather than distance, with a varied different trail followed each day. The scenery varies from forested canopies, open meadows, valleys and streams to hilltop hamlets, medieval villages and ancient monasteries.

In just over a decade, The Ranch has established a devout following, with a return rate of more than 50%, along with critical acclaim and regular awards.
