If you’re one of the 45 percent of American who usually set New Year’s Resolutions, you certainly want to be among the only 8 percent who actually stick with them.
“Lose weight and exercise more” is the No. 1 most commonly broken New Year’s resolution and 60 percent of gym memberships bought in January are never used. That means a lot of money and opportunity are wasted.
So, the personal-finance website WalletHub took an in-depth look at cities where staying on track with your goals is difficult and where it’s not.
To determine where Americans have the best chance of balancing a healthy diet with ample physical activity, WalletHub compared the 100 biggest U.S. cities across 34 key metrics. The data set ranges from average monthly fitness-club fee to bike score to share of physically inactive adults.
