Thinking of making a big move in 2018? If you want to land in a healthy place, start with this list.

 

According to Trulia, where you live plays an important role in getting and staying in shape and staying healthy.  We found this article written by Jill K. Robinson, of Trulia, that verifies what all of us who live in Utah and enjoy the various sports activities that it has to offer, already know.  

A new year is here and with it new beginnings. If your resolutions include a big life change like buying a home, consider what your new lifestyle will look like. How will the place you choose to live shape your day-to-day routine and contribute to your getting healthy and your overall wellness? Should your new house have a park nearby? Will your morning commute leave you stuck in traffic, or will you be cruising through the bike lane?

Where you live plays an important role in getting—and staying—in shape. In the right city, being fit isn’t a chore; when its core to the community around you, it simply becomes a way of life. To find the healthiest cities in the U.S., Trulia looked at ten key factors for the 100 largest metros in the country, including the percent of adults who report biking or walking to work and the percent of residents who exercise regularly, among others (you can read the full methodology below). We then calculated which cities ranked highest in each category, and overall, to determine the winners. Check out which healthy cities landed on our fit list this year.

 

1. Salt Lake City, UT

Salt Lake City is the perfect base camp for healthy sports and outdoor enthusiasts. Utah’s capital has the most sports teams and leagues, and the most sporting goods stores per household of any of the top 100 metro areas in the United States. Locals love to hike, bike, and snowboard in the nearby Wasatch Mountains, which are teeming with valley trails and ski resorts. And they do it often—with 82 percent of residents having exercised in the past month.

healthiest neighborhoods

With activities ranging from bobsledding in Olympic Park, home to the 2002 winter games and now a training facility for everyday athletes, to year-round river rafting and amenities like convenient bike lanes in the city center, there’s something for everyone in Salt Lake City. Thinking about where to start? Check out the Sugar House neighborhood, home to Sugar House Park with 110 acres of rolling hills, lakes, walking paths, and views sure to inspire an outdoor expedition.
