A Western vacation with us is jam-packed with horseback riding, pampering, and thrilling outdoor activities – but guests looking to keep  up with their physical fitness routines also have access to everything they need to stay in peak condition.

Scenery to Elevate Your Mindset

When it comes to a vacation at an authentic dude ranch, guests expect to be surrounded by the natural beauty of the great outdoors – and a workout at C Lazy U is no different. One of the best parts about the gym facility is its location. On the occasions that Mother Nature doesn’t allow guests to stay active outside, the fitness center is a nice getaway to keep your body moving. The gym is located in a quiet corner of the Patio House, and provides limited distractions and invigorating views of our surrounding 8,500 acres of natural splendor.

Our expert ranch staff provide guided mountain yoga, guided hikes, guided climbing on the rock wall and ropes course, and guided mountain biking to get guests outside and moving. Whether you’re a fitness enthusiast looking to maintain your workout regimen or someone who just wants to stay active during your vacation, C Lazy U has you covered!

From the Horse's Mouth

We arrived late at night and received the warmest welcome of any vacation experience we have ever had. We were a little lost, it was dark but someone walked up to our car in the freezing cold (I think it was Taylor, the night manager) and said "Hello, we have been waiting for your arrival. Welcome Borsari family. You must be hungry, we have your plates waiting for you upstairs. Come on up to the lodge when you are ready and we will have your dinner waiting. Don't worry about checking in, we can take care of all that tomorrow. Come and get warmed up." My husband and I actually wanted to cry. LOL! we were all starving and he read our minds. The welcome was the warmest we have ever received, anywhere.
