Boot Camp Series: SkyLab’s Life Change Camp

Pismo Beach, California (c) Sheri Zimmerlin

Jaunt doesn’t like to focus too much on the physical form (nor covet the well-toned or emaciated bodies of today’s hottest celebs), but we do think health and wellness go hand-in-hand with a sexy, well-maintained physique. We also think, what better way to achieve your bootilicious goals then with a breathtaking sea-side escape?

The first in a special Jaunt series, we’ll highlight the best body and soul boot camps from around the world. Just three hours north of LA in Pismo Beach, California, today’s sexiest trainer (and reality star) will snap your ass into shape and guide you into a new more fit – and fulfilled – phase of life.

Jackie Warner, star of Bravo’s Workout and owner of Sky Sport & Spa in Beverly Hills, has not only developed the best abs in LA, but she’s also earned herself a solid reputation as an entrepreneur and fitness professional. Well-informed on issues of biological psychology, with a particular interest in the effects of nutrition and physical training on brain function, Ms. Warner holds certifications from the International Sports Science Association (ISSA) and the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA).

In conjunction with Decadent Health, LLC (, Sky Sport and The Dolphin Bay Resort, she’s now offering a week long chance to finally get your ass in gear.

SkyLab’s Life Change Camp just might be the life-changing experience you desperately needed. Forget applying to The Biggest Loser, during this all-inclusive intense retreat, you’ll live, eat, and workout with Jackie Warner, celebrity trainer and star of the hit Bravo TV show. She’ll teach you, train you, tone you, inspire you, and give you the discipline and motivation to lose weight… for good. In addition to breaking your sugar addiction, you’ll sweat and work like never before, all under the ever-present and constant watch of Jackie and her team of trainers.

Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa

Perched atop dramatic bluffs on California’s Central Coast, the luxurious oceanfront accommodations overlook Shell Beach, one of California’s most beautiful vacation spots. Located halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Dolphin Bay features 65 one and two-bedroom residences, as well as several large penthouse units, and is within minutes of historic landmarks, white-sand beaches, wine country, boutiques, and championship golf courses. With a variety of outdoor activities like bicycling, hiking, kayaking, surfing, and exploring the numerous tide pools, you’ll never be at a loss for something physical to do. Plus, the weather is great year-round.

The property’s spa, La Bonne Vie, is another welcome retreat from the hectic and often crowded LA city spas. Signature treatments include the “Effect,” a cellulite reduction and body contouring treatment that utilizes Dermosonic® technology, a combination of ultrasound and noninvasive subdermal therapy to act on the circulatory causes that lie underneath the always-dreaded cellulite. The resort’s Lido Restaurant serves up coastal wine country cuisine made with market-fresh produce, just-caught seafood, and locally raised meats and poultry under a specially commissioned grand chandelier fashioned out of my favorite… Italian Murano glass.

Pst… after you’re done breaking a sweat, the nearby Edna Valley boasts a slew of excellent wineries.

Only 3 hrs from LA, it’s a simple drive up the coast. Four major airlines also fly into the San Luis Obispo airport – US Air, United, American, and Delta. In true celebrity style, a complimentary shuttle will whisk you from the airport to Dolphin Bay.

Sorry, but rock hard abs and a solid life change sometimes come with a hefty price.
