(Business) "When our group of 8 executives arrived at LSPP we had misguided opinions on each others' strengths and weaknesses. But in 24 hours we forged a bond tighter than any of us could have imagined because of the unique team building structure of LSPP. Now, whenever a complex task arises, we're able to tackle it as a unified team using the many life skills we learned from LSPP. If you are looking for an opportunity to instill some fundamental leadership skills in a group of managers or to refresh your executive management team with leadership skills that truly matter, LSPP is the place to do it!

(Business) “We held our annual [multi-day] company summit for 30 employees at Lone Star Peak Performance and had a fantastic time. The property was ideal for getting away from the norm of business to focus on not only company goals but each other. The ropes course taught us communication practices, teamwork, overcoming fears that are still being talked about 2 months after the event. We highly recommend this location to unplug, enjoy the beauty of the water, and invest in your team.”
-- Double A Labs
(Business) "We chose Lone Star Peak Performance for the purpose of creating a team synergy and development. My team and I were extremely pleased by the staff and the team building exercises we performed. We were able to strengthen our San Antonio and Austin Operations Departments by working for common goals while enjoying ourselves. The courses opened communications and trust between us that is invaluable and we all walked away after a perfect day knowing we are a better organization for this. We are already discussing a return. Thank you LSPP Team!"

(Non-Profit) "We worked with Lone Star Peak Performance to develop an orienteering challenge for our participants, who are college-age future teachers. The LSPP team was incredibly easy to work with and thoughtful about how to provide an excellent experience to our participants, who did not know each other well going into the activity. I am confident lifelong bonds were formed over the course of the 4 hours. I was also very impressed with the degree to which LSPP integrated our organization’s goals, missions, and even logos into the activity. Overall, the organization was seamless and our future teachers learned valuable lessons about themselves and the importance (and challenges) of team work.

(Business) “A fantastic leadership experience! Our group learned critical team-building skills, improved communication and out-of-the-box thinking. By putting the team into challenging, uncomfortable situations, LSPP created some amazing memories for the team and I have received appreciation from the entire team for their program. [We] truly had some tremendous learning experiences that they will bring back to the office. Excellent job to the Lone Star crew. We had a blast!”

(University) "The Ranch experience allows [our executive students] to use what they’ve learned in the classroom to lead and be led in an experiential environment. They come together as a team and work through challenges that are physical but even more mental in nature. They push themselves to do their part as a team member both when they take the leadership role and when they are following another leader. The experience helps them to better understand their leadership style and focus on how they will bring the experience back to their teams both at work and at home. The fantastic team at the Ranch is not only great to work with, they give our students the parameters of their assignment so the team can succeed, and, more importantly, they conduct a debrief after each activity that ties together everything that happened, or didn’t happen, to help them complete the learning journey."
-- University of Texas at Austin
(University) “Our experience at the ranch was something we could not have produced on our own as a coaching staff. It was great to see the team bond under different leadership and style of instruction. The athletes were able to discover and accept their own strengths and weaknesses as well as their teammates, and they were successful in working together to meet a common goal outside of their comfort zone. The LSPP staff was extremely accommodating and thorough with what the coaches wanted to achieve from the experience.”
-- Baylor University
(Business) "I had the privilege of taking my entire company out to the M5 Ranch where we experienced a fantastic morning of learning and team-building. Guided by the expert LSPP crew, I not only had the chance to get to know some of my team members better, but also to see their leadership skills begin to emerge thanks to the kind and thoughtful guidance of the LSPP team. The best part was the bus ride back, when conversation continued about what people had learned, how much they’d enjoyed the day together and those good feelings continue. We will be making this an annual event for our company and I cannot recommend Lone Star Peak Performance more highly. Thank you, LSPP team!"
-- UnCommon Logic
(Reunion) “We had a great time here for our family reunion. Our kids had a great time playing volleyball until the wee hours of the morning. They spent most of the afternoon on the deck at the end of the pier. Was a perfect place for them to gather and the cement ramp into the water was perfect for the little ones to swim. It was easy for Mom (age 81) to get around to watch grand kids and great-grand kids as there weren’t any stairs. We really enjoyed the outdoor kitchen and grill. Plenty of room for a large group!”
(School) “Lone Star Peak Performance Training provided the right climate for our students to expand their team building and leadership skills, including providing a safe environment with the right encouragement for some of the quieter personalities to emerge as leaders, which was a great surprise we hadn’t anticipated.”
-- Flower Mound High School
(Business) “Simply put, truly outstanding and positively impactful. The M5 Ranch delivers a first class experience. Organizational performance will soar and the personal bonds made on the banks of Lake Buchanan (in less than 48 hours) will last a life time. If one is interested in positively impacting employee retention, deepening trust, increasing morale, and seeing a ‘real’ return on investment – this is it.”
-- APTUS Discovery
(Business) “The time our team spent at LSPP far exceeded everyone’s expectations. The activities selected helped strengthen our team, allowed everyone to learn something about themselves and each other, and enforced the importance of planning, adapting and executing as a group. Everyone was motivated and eager to apply what they had learned. LSPP and the M5 Ranch have a first class facility with top-notch instruction for a truly memorable experience.”
-- TPH Partners
(Business) "[Our] experience at Lone Star Peak Performance was both challenging and inspiring. M5 Ranch is a first class facility and the LSPP experienced instructors created the right learning environment to build teamwork and trust amongst the participants. We all left feeling thankful and re-energized with new skills and perspectives to improve the way we lead within our organizations. I would recommend this experience to any group who wants to become a TEAM or any team who wants to become a high performance one.”
-- Dell Technologies
(College) “From the planning stages to the very end of the retreat, the staff of Lone Star Peak Performance exceeded our expectations. Completing the courses and challenges has strengthened our team, brought us closer together, and increased trust in one another. We all left the ranch feeling like family and one unit! We can’t thank the staff of LSPP enough for all they have done to assist us in making this retreat the BEST ever!”
-- Lone Star College
(University) (we can come to you!) “We had the pleasure of hosting Lone Star Peak Performance at our Campus to perform some amazing leadership training with our fitness center staff. With a predominantly new staff for the fall, we wanted to have them participate in some team building events that would not only encourage them to build relationships, but also allow them to expand their comfort zones both individually and as a team. LSPP rose above our expectations for objectives and we look forward to a continued partnership with them for team building events. My staff can’t stop talking about how much fun they had and how much they learned about themselves and each other.”
-- Univ. of Mary Hardin-Baylor
(Business) “I saw character traits come out in several members of my team that made me very proud to be associated with this great group of employees. The tasks at hand brought out the very best in everyone. The facilitators were truly a joy to be around and were there to motivate the teams through their angst (when they needed a little push)."
-- Park Place Dealerships
(Business) “Lone Star Peak Performance was the perfect venue for our off-site session. The facility embodied the beauty of the Texas Hill Country and the staff was excellent! Our team building exercise was centered around strengthening team cohesiveness. The LSPP staff did a great job really zoning in on what we wanted to accomplish and designed our exercise to achieve greater unity. For me, the biggest indicator that our outing was successful, was that everyone left the Hill Country with a smile!”

(Business) “Lone Star Peak Performance provided the essential environment that our team needed in order to grow together. From a diverse range of activities that fostered teamwork, trust, and courage to the more intimate atmosphere of the fire pit with the backdrop of the lake and stars, we left feeling unified as a group. With fantastic food, lodging, activities, and scenery, we hope to return once again and further our growth as a team.”
(Small Wedding) “My new wife and I had THE BEST TIME! This is a perfect venue if you (like us) want to have a small wedding that lasts all weekend, we had a live band on Friday night, enjoyed the ranch all day Saturday playing volley ball, horse shoes, and ultimate Frisbee. The highlight had to be the second story deck with the diving platform; we used it all weekend and got some amazing pictures of everyone jumping off along with the bride and groom taking the plunge. We had a catered dinner with a DJ on Saturday night and danced the night away until midnight. Sunday was brunch and a few stragglers still on the deck until after noon. We loved M5 and are already talking about booking it again for the ten year anniversary!”

(Non-Profit) "The experience at the ranch was astounding. Travis and the rest of the staff were so accommodating to the group's needs and the flexibility in all the requests that we put in front of him, he just smiled and made it happen. The activities (especially the 4 wheel drive event) were wonderful. The instructions were clear and the staff were patient. Our group loved it. The houses were beautiful and not to mention the location. Over all, I give a A++.”

(Business) “This was just what our team needed to build, reconnect, and discover more about each other and ourselves. Along with the incredible views and serenity of being on the lake, we were able to spend time being challenged. At each activity, we learned something different about ourselves and our team as a whole. The facilitators helped us to draw meaningful applications that we are now applying back in our role as corporate leaders. The perfect combination of organized activities and time for relaxation and reflection. There truly was something for everyone to do to relax and refresh at the end of each day, making this an incredible and worthwhile investment in our team for development and health & wellness.”
