Life is about balance and often, when people are struggling with dual diagnosis issues, it can be hard enough just to wake up, shower and get dressed.Our goal at Milestones is to restore that balance by incorporating healthy habits back into (or for the first time) into one’s life.
Getting the body moving is essential to improving both your physical and mental health and has been proven to reduce stress levels . At Milestones Ranch we have access to a beautiful state of the art gym.
Calamigos Guest Spa and Gym is a private fitness facility and spa located approximately 500 yards from Milestones. Milestones guests have private access to the facility from 11:00am-12:00pm Monday through Friday and optional weekend gym time as well. We have implemented a required gym time for all residents from 11:00am to 12:00pm because we recognize that half the battle is just getting to the gym.
During this gym time clients have access to the Olympic size swimming pool, top of the line treadmills, ellipticals, spinning bicycles, boxing equipment, machine weights, free weights and much more.
In addition to the gym time we also offer clients other various forms of aerobic activities so each client can uncover for themselves what types of activities they can do on their own when they get home. Some of these additional activities include, but are not limited to:
- hiking on our many nearby trails in the beautiful Santa Monica mountains or along the beach
- trauma informed yoga classes
- kick boxing classes
- Aqua Zumba
- Strength training
Structure, routine and managing stress are an integral components in early recovery. Our goal is to help each client learn balance including healthy living habits while in treatment so they can take it with them after they leave and establish a healthy daily routine that works for them outside of treatment.
