Ricardo Laborin, a director in emerging markets at Credit Suisse Group Inc. in Mexico City, says his retreat with Le Corre in West Virginia helped end his addiction to processed foods -- MovNat meals are devoid of sugar, starch and alcohol -- and spurred him to lose more than 20 pounds. I had a gym membership but rarely went, Laborin, 34, says. When I saw photos of Erwan hanging from trees and lifting logs, I was sold.

The Fitness Habits Of Wildly Successful People

So they recruited 48 kids who were 9 or 10 years old and asked them to learn the names of 10 fictional regions on a made-up map.
