Inspiration Awards – Our Way of Celebrating 35 Years


Our Way of Celebrating 35 Years

In 1979, Mel and Enid Zuckerman opened the first Canyon Ranch as a resort devoted to fitness, nutrition, relaxation and healthy living. Their innovative original concept has since inspired many thousands of people to make positive, long-term lifestyle changes. Today Canyon Ranch is celebrating 35 years of leading the health and fitness revolution. To mark this anniversary, we’ll honor deserving men and women with Canyon Ranch Inspiration Awards in association with Health magazine: 35 life-enhancing stays at each luxurious Canyon Ranch resort – in Tucson, Arizona, and Lenox, Massachusetts – for outstanding people who could not easily manage a Ranch vacation. We hope you’ll help in our search for 70 exceptional individuals by nominating somebody who, through example or actions, has inspired you.

Who inspires you? There’s a good chance you know somebody who deserves an Inspiration Award: a person who has shown selfless generosity of spirit, served as a mentor, sacrificed for others’ well-being, shared personal gifts, overcome adversity in health or circumstances, helped young people thrive or made a real difference for the community. You can honor that man or woman with a nomination for this award. Each winner will enjoy a life-affirming Canyon Ranch vacation, complete with daily activities, personal services, private consultations, personal attention and total serenity in a gorgeous natural setting. It’s the perfect opportunity for healing, reflection, growth, relaxation and pure pleasure in a safe, nurturing environment. Far removed from daily pressures, the Ranch is a haven for restoring balance, joy and vitality.

Award recipients will enjoy:

  • A four-night, all-inclusive stay at Canyon Ranch in either Tucson or Lenox (guest’s choice).
  • Deluxe accommodations.
  • Three gourmet meals daily, plus always-available healthy snacks.
  • $670 allowance for spa, sports and integrative wellness services – this can include massages, personal training, consultations with health experts and much more.
  • More than 40 fitness classes and activities daily.
  • Unlimited access to truly incredible facilities.
  • Transfers to and from local airports or train stations, or complimentary valet parking (please call for details).
  • $300 prepaid credit card at check-in to use toward travel or other expenses.
