*LIST* Best (And Worst) Cities For An Active Lifestyle

This is the time of year when many people are stepping up their fitness routines as they try to stick to those newly-made New Year’s resolutions. Some of Americans’ top resolutions are “exercising more” and “losing weight,” and while aspiring to be the healthiest version of yourself is easy, actually reaching that goal is a lot more challenging. And it turns out, where you live may play a role in whether you stick to your resolutions.

With that in mind, WalletHub set out to determine the best cities for an active lifestyle. They compared the 100 biggest cities in the U.S. on 36 key indicators of an active lifestyle, looking at everything from the average monthly fitness-club fee to the number of hiking trails in the area. Based on all that, Honolulu, Hawaii, tops the list, scoring 62.19 out of 100 and coming in first for sports and outdoors.
