Was your New Year’s resolution the same as it is every year – to be more active, to exercise, to lose weight? Well let’s make it happen this year!
According to a study by WalletHub, it shouldn’t be that hard, since Las Vegas ranked among the best cities for an active lifestyle. We’re lucky to have the great weather we have, and the open spaces we have.
Actually achieving a healthy lifestyle is more difficult than we’d like it to be, and it requires a consistently active routine. Sometimes there are obstacles, because where you live may not promote a healthy way of life. Some cities lack sidewalks, and neighborhood parks. Weather also plays a big part in how active you are – or can be.
WalletHub compared the 100 biggest U.S. cities based on 36 key indicators of an active lifestyle. Their data set ranges from the average monthly fitness-club fee, to bike score, to the share of physically inactive adults.
Honolulu took the number one spot, followed by San Francisco in second, New York in third, Chicago in fourth, and Las Vegas in fifth place. Rounding out the top ten: Cincinnati in sixth place, San Diego in seventh, Madison Wisconsin in eighth, Denver in ninth, and Atlanta in tenth!
Here’s how different a city can be – Las Vegas is number five, North Las Vegas came in at 100! What???? Not that different from Las Vegas, and it’s right over there! Nonetheless, a very low ranking.
As far as fitness clubs, our neighbors up north ranked number three. Reno has more fitness clubs per capita than 97 other cities!
