The way to get lean and healthy is lots of targeted exercise and balanced meals. For, like, ever. But those of us who want fast results--and are willing to work for them--know that we’ll have to really bust a move. Which translates boot camp. We’ve put together some programs, from four days to six weeks in length, that include diet and fitness.

Sure, we might be a little sore. And hungry. But we’ll be so proud of our slim, strong self, we're going to crush 2016.

BootCamp 4Seas 597x430

If You Have 4 Days...

Hit the Ranch 4.0 at the Four Seasons Westlake Village. You’ll have 8 hours of rigorous exercise a day including a four-hour morning hike, gym classes and daily yoga. And you’ll get to eat 1,400 calories a day of vegetarian fare. The price is steep ($4,100); however, you do get to sleep in a Four Seasons and have daily massages.

BootCamp Lacey 597x4301

If You Have 7 Days...

Challenge yourself to the week-long boot camp led by Lacey Stone. The tall blonde trains celebs like Mary-Louise Parker and is a celebrity herself to regulars at her Flywheel spin class. Her #7DaysStraight program ($590) requires participants to pledge to forgo alcohol, eat gluten- and meat-free meals home delivered from Paleta, and take once or twice-daily spin or exercise classes. Stone’s regimen is great for people who want to challenge themselves a lot but can’t take a whole week away from family and work.
