For an exercise focused weight loss and fitness program, this place hits the sweet spot. The personalized attention on beautiful hikes in Malibu makes a challenging experience possible. Very caring and supportive staff who seem deeply committed to the cause. Fitness programming and variety are excellent. It keeps you engaged and interested through your exhaustion. Attendance is taken ... You cannot slouch off here.
The food preparation is spotty (sometimes excellent, other times overcooked and not creative) and nutrition education was lackluster ... The only area where enthusiasm waned. Outstanding, supportive psychologist provides wonderful, personal lectures that engage. I had the best massage of my life here. It left me speechless.
There is no medical care. If you have ongoing active medical ssues, there are other facilities for weight loss that would be better for you.
The cabins are comfortable but not luxury, fitting with what you are signing up for! Pretty campus in a gorgeous locale. They truly take advantage of ad show off the beauty of the California coast and Santa Monica mountains.
I would return for another diet and exercise 'tune up'.
