New York City, NY

New York City, as the city that never sleeps, is the most walkable city in the United States, and one of the most walkable cities in the world. This also puts it at number one when it comes to use of public transportation and walking, which makes for some fit residents. New Yorkers are ranking at a lower percentage of obesity compared to the national average. Not only that, but New Yorkers have access to an array of the best resources in the country—from revolutionary weight loss methods, to the latest trendy health foods, celebrity trainers, and weight loss procedures. 

There is a fitness group for everyone, with plenty of trendy studios and every park in the city being used for meetups, from Battery Park, to Prospect Park, to the infamous Central Park. Whether kickboxing or dancing is your niche, there is a group of people looking to move their bodies and burn some calories the same way you are. Practice yoga in Bryant Park during cool summer nights, dance to get fit at West Harlem Piers Park, or grab your tiny human to join you for Parent and Me Yoga at Fort Tryon Park. The opportunities are boundless. Great fitness meetups can be found here: https://www.meetup.com/topics/fitness/us/ny/new_york/

New York City is not only home to bountiful fitness options inside and out, but the city also hosts the Annual New York City Marathon. Coursing through all five boroughs, it’s the largest marathon in the world. For races all year round, from 5Ks and 10Ks to half-marathons and marathons, visit: https://nycruns.com/races/ or https://www.runningintheusa.com/race/list/ny/upcoming

New York City also hosts an array of bariatric surgeons focusing not only on total wellness, but effective weight loss surgeries for individuals who have tried multiple weight loss strategies that haven’t been effective. The LAP-BAND® System is a non-anatomy gastric banding procedure that is performed laparoscopically, making it different than other bariatric surgeries. This allows for a short hospital stay so patients can get back to their lives and weight loss journey quickly. Below is a list of bariatric surgeons that offer the LAP-BAND, an effective, safer, and customizable weight loss surgery option.
