Cities on the Move
Each year, Americans' lists of New Year's resolutions are topped by a desire to lose weight and exercise more. And after a year spent cooped up and socially distancing amid a pandemic, those goals may be more important than ever. Yet nearly all of us fail at those goals. When it comes to physical fitness, where you live can be part of the challenge. WalletHub studied 100 cities across the country to identify which urban centers best support residents who want to be more active as well as which cities make it easy to take a pass on physical fitness goals. The study is based on 38 key indicators that support an active lifestyle, such as average monthly fitness-club fees, the availability of parks and walking trails, weather, and other criteria. Here are the 10 cities that make it easiest to live an active lifestyle, and 10 where it can be the most challenging.
