Living a Healthy Lifestyle in Montana

With hundreds of miles of wild rivers, beckoning mountain ranges full of hiking trails and ski slopes, and plenty of fresh ingredients right in your backyard, Montana makes it simple to live a healthy lifestyle. Here’s why it’s so easy to stay healthy and be your best self when you make your home at beautiful Prescott Ranch in Belgrade, Montana.


​Outdoor Recreation Within Reach 

It is easy to get outside and enjoy blood-pumping activities in every season when you live in Southwest Montana’s Gallatin Valley. You can head out for a trail run (or walk) in the Bridger Range, with trailheads just 20 minutes from Prescott Ranch, and you have access to acres of wide-open spaces in the natural areas just beyond – Yellowstone National Park included. 

World-class skiing and snowboarding await at both Bridger Bowl and Big Sky, or you can give Nordic skiing a try on local groomed trails. Fishing and river floating are good for your body and soul, with fresh air and physical activity in the sunshine acting as natural stress relievers. If golf is your game, you can tee off mere minutes from your doorstep when you make your home at Prescott Ranch.

​World-Class Fitness Centers

The great outdoors is not the only option for staying fit. You will find ample ways to work out, with fitness centers, yoga studios, personal trainers, and more all close by. In nearby Four Corners, Bozeman Hot Springs combines fitness – with extensive facilities and classes available – and relaxing soaks in the hot, natural mineral waters of the springs. Choose between gyms and country clubs, a trendy studio ambiance or relaxed local sports leagues. From the new Cove Athletic Club to crossfit gyms like Belgrade Fitness, you can find it all in the Gallatin Valley.


Fuel Up With the Freshest Ingredients 

When you have finished your workout, it is time to refuel. ​With such close proximity to fertile farmland, life in Montana includes access to fresh, local foods through both local farmers and grocery stores. The Belgrade Farmers Market runs July 1- September 2, bringing farm-fresh produce and locally made goods straight to your community.

You can also contact a nearby farm directly to set up a CSA box (short for Community Supported Agriculture) subscription that gives your whole family the nutrients of local organic produce. Or for traditional shopping, grocery stores like Town & Country, Rosauers and the Community Food Co-op in nearby Bozeman emphasize local produce and Made-in-Montana products for your palate to enjoy and your body to thrive on.

Farm to Table with Local Dining 

Healthy dining does not need to begin and end at your own table. Local restaurants take nutrition to the apex of deliciousness with both fine dining and casual fare available. Looking for plant-based eats to fit your diet? Check out Farmacy for fresh and healthy bowls and salads. Want to experience global cuisine with fresh ingredients? Try the pho at Bone Broth Noodles, organic Colombian fare at Cafe Havana or a spicy Indian dish at Curry Express. You can find what your taste buds long for, without venturing out of the valley. Live life fully and refuel in alignment with your health goals, never sacrificing great flavor.
