2018’s Best & Worst Cities for an Active Lifestyle

Are you going to be among the 8 percent of people who actually stick with their resolutions?


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.
