The Ranch, a healthy lifestyle company, has introduced three custom group experiences at The Ranch 4.0 at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village in California. The new packages incorporate the core elements of The Ranch’s signature program—hiking, rest, strength conditioning, massages and yoga—with custom programming to suit a group’s individual needs, four-day stays at the Four Seasons and a daily diet of fresh vegetarian fare. Leading & Clean Eating is a culinary adventure that explores signature plant-based cuisine, while C-Suite Retreat combines in-depth medical testing from the California Health & Longevity Institute and attendees gaining a better sense of their personal health and creating a work/life balance. The third, Strength in Numbers, is a fitness-oriented approach aimed at strengthening the body, clearing the mind and encouraging camaraderie and teamwork.

Planning trips that are distinct can help inspire top performances and loyalty. Grand American Adventures, which specializes in small group excursions for 35- to 65-yearolds, has launched a series of in-depth, guided tours in the Mountain West that also can work well for incentive trips. The excursions feature an element of luxury and accommodations in upscale boutique lodges, ranches, yurts and cabins.
