New Year, new you, right? With “lose weight” and “exercise more” topping the list of New Year’s Resolutions each year and as many of 92 percent of people failing to keep their resolutions at all, the personal-finance website Wallethub is here to help you out with a new study of the best and worst cities for living an active lifestyle in 2020.

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 38 key metrics. The data set ranges from average monthly fitness-club fee to bike score to share of physically inactive adults.
