With more than 200 private acres in a secluded valley 40 miles north of San Diego, you’d think this beautifully hidden Tuscan treasure was built by perfectionists! Adored by many A-List celebrities, Cal-a-Vie puts a whole new meaning to the words “Fitness Fantasy.” Hosting only 25 guests at a time, you’ll get optimal privacy and personalized attention. Programs are not only top-notch here, but also tough (you’ll be working out a minimum of five hours every day!).
Each morning might start with an intense hike, followed by back-to-back fitness classes like spinning, cardio sculpting, power yoga, and kickboxing. But of course it can’t be all hard work; expect to be pampered later with wonderful hot stone foot massages and oxygen facials. The popular four-night all-inclusive stay (including accommodations, meals, treatments, fitness classes, nutritional lecture, cooking demonstration, and airport transfers) prices out at about $5,595.
