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/
