About Canyon Ranch

Our Mission

Canyon Ranch aims to inspire people to make a commitment to healthy living, turning hopes and intentions into the highest enjoyment of life.

The creation of Canyon Ranch stems directly from the experience of founder Mel Zuckerman, who – overweight, sedentary and desperate – checked himself into a fat farm in 1978. After just 10 days of physical training and healthy eating, he realized that he felt wonderful, that he’d changed his life forever, and that he wanted to help other people change theirs.

Pursuing a vision of healthy living for everyone, Mel and his wife Enid opened the first Canyon Ranch destination resort spa in Tucson, Arizona, in 1979. Today it is recognized worldwide as the gold standard for healthy vacations. The company has expanded far beyond the family-run health resort envisioned by its founders, while always remaining true to their original mission.
