Everybody at the beginning of the year has body goals. One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is working out. They want to lose weight or live a healthier lifestyle and there are cities throughout the country that are the best and worst for an active lifestyle.  As the new year begins, the top 2 New Year’s resolutions for Americans are “exercising more” and “losing weight.” Does that even surprise you? Nah! Even though they make those resolutions 80-90% of people fail to keep their resolutions each year.

WalletHub compared the 100 biggest cities in America based on 36 key indicators of an active lifestyle.  This ranges from the average monthly fitness club fee to bike score to the share of physically inactive adults.

There were 4 other cities from North Carolina that were on this list.  Raleigh ranked 37 with an active lifestyle score of 46.79, Charlotte ranked 41 with an active lifestyle score of 45.98,  Durham was 86 with an active lifestyle score of 35.02, and Greensboro came in at 90 with an active lifestyle score of 34.02.
