Canyon Ranch: Typical Day


Feeling Good Is Awesome

The Julian Krinsky/ Canyon Ranch experience is an outstanding way for teenagers to enjoy fitness, sports performance, relaxation and great food. There are no rules or diets. Instead, it’s a positive awakening and first-hand experience with benefits for a summer and a lifetime. Our curriculum is designed to be the ultimate holistic approach to mind-body wellness. Students have broad flexibility in choosing courses based on their likes and interests. Each class — whether sports, spirituality or a spa service — is directed by a qualified, knowledgeable instructor using the latest equipment and techniques.

Inspirational Instructors

Our food specialists, exercise physiologists and service providers have developed an exciting program to help you look, feel and be great. Why not take this unique opportunity to explore every aspect of your potential with world-renowned experts who are friendly and fun to be with?
