The Ranch offers a comprehensive men’s program with fitness classes, spa treatments for men, and a chance to kick your feet up and relax. End the day with a glass of locally sourced wine from the Baja region at our Bazaar Del Sol, or enjoy a cooking class at La Cocina Que Canta. Most importantly, a week at The Ranch is an opportunity to take a break from the busyness of everyday life and enjoy time for yourself.

Looking to get away from it all? We have a men’s fitness program that will fit any man’s needs, whether you’re looking for a hardcore workout, or a “spa-cation,” or both. The Ranch is especially great for outdoor fitness enthusiasts and those looking to train for ultramarathons. To quote an ultrarunner who recently visited our fitness resort, “The Ranch is a trail runner’s dream.”

[wptabtitle]Men’s Fitness[/wptabtitle][wptabcontent]Whether you’d like to train for a specific sport or activity, or simply get in shape, the Ranch has a program for you. Below we highlight our favorite activities and classes for men looking to stay #RanchFit.
[wpspoiler name=”Circuit Training” open=”true”]
This fast-paced class begins with a 15-minute cardio segment that is followed by a vigorous balance/strength/coordination workout around a multi-station circuit. Circuit Training is a fun way to target strength building and muscular endurance without having to follow a routine or stay on a beat.
[wpspoiler name=”Core Challenge” open=”true”]
The approach this class takes is integration, rather than isolation. Many men may experience lower back pain and often this can be attributed to weak core muscles.

*Not suggested for those with shoulder, back or knee conditions.
[wpspoiler name=”Meditation” open=”true”]
How can I sit comfortably? What do I do with my hands? How do I breath? How long should I meditate?
After establishing these basic practices, we can then apply our meditation to different areas of life such as forgiveness, gratefulness, happiness, letting go or stress mastery.
[wpspoiler name=”Tennis” open=”true”]
Private and semi-private lessons are available by appointment Sunday through Friday. See our Tennis Professional at the Ranch to sign up. (Additional fee)

[wpspoiler name=”Yoga: Level Two” open=”true”]
Every week Rancho La Puerta offers a complete program of over 60 different classes and activities (four or more every hour) led by our expert staff. In addition, we invite—each week—some of our favorite “presenters” to join us and share their specialty. We consider them our guest stars, and you may want to time your stay to the presence of one of these presenters (or “themes” on occasion, such as “yoga week”) that appeals to you greatly—or pick ANY week that works for you: they are all equally rewarding in their variety, depth, and effectiveness.
