Here in Billings, wellness means a lot more than spas and saunas. Of course, we have plenty of places where you can have your worries massaged away, or rediscover your balance through hot yoga or Pilates. But this is Montana’s Trailhead. Mix up your routine. 

Try a new sport. Embark on a rock-climbing lesson. Forge Your Own Path to wellness, whatever it means to you.



Tired of the tried and true gym routine? Mix things up in the boxing ring at 9Round Fitness with a 30-minute kickboxing workout that will boost your stamina, strengthen muscles and release toxins. There are no set class times, so just show up ready to punch your way to rejuvenation.



Maybe you’ve been yearning to learn a new skill like rock climbing? Then check out SteepWorld Climbing and Fitness and take one of their courses on rock climbing, rope climbing or bouldering. Courses are open to everyone from beginners on up. If you decide at the last minute you’re a bit scared of heights, not to worry. SteepWorld offers a fitness area with stationary bikes, treadmills and step machines as well as yoga courses.


Speaking of bikes, Billings is home to 47 miles of trails. Why not give mountain biking a try to get the heart pumping while the breathtaking landscape of sandstone formations and spectacular views of five mountain formations nourish your spirit. Several outfitters in the Billings area rent bikes if you don’t have your own, and also offer classes for those new to shredding the mountainous trails. PS – there’s no rule that you can’t have this same transcendental experience by hiking the trails as well.


Many of those trails are the venue for races that draw thousands of runners to Billings each year. Maybe one of them will inspire you to visit Montana’s Trailhead. The popular Montana Women’s Run and the Montana Marathon take place in Billings each May and September, respectively. Be sure to check out the Heart & Sole Run each June, and join us for one of the locals’ favorites – The Last Best Beer Run & 5K – every May. For a complete list of all our races and more information on each, be sure to visit our events page.



For the more traditional wellness experience, be sure to check out Onyx Wellness Studio and Spa. Onyx offers a full menu of holistic services ranging from massage to yoga and barre classes. Try something new with a visit to Onyx’s halotherapy area and relax in a zero-gravity chair in a room with walls covered in Himalayan sea salt. The natural antibacterial particles of salt disperse in the air to aid in stimulating the body’s internal process for cleansing the respiratory system, removing build-up of foreign particles that cause various respiratory ailments, and strengthening respiratory function. 


Your workout routine doesn’t need to a take vacation while you’re enjoying one. Try something different and “Rok” your body with a 40-minute workout at BodyRok Pilates, which is the equivalent of a 60-minute normal workout. You can use that extra time to explore even more of Montana’s Trailhead!


If yoga is how you re-center, then visit LimberTree Studio. Yoga your way to a refreshed you amid views of the Beartooth Mountains during a rooftop yoga class, or spend some time upside down in an aerial yoga course.
