The rankings are in, and these are the top spots to celebrate your love for working up a serious sweat.
Studies have proven it: Working out with a partner can improve your performance (and motivation). And if you’re on the hunt for like-minded fitness friends or training buddies, you may want to unroll your yoga mat and lace up your sneakers on the West Coast. According to Eventbrite’s just-released The United States of Events report, three Californian cities take the cake: San Francisco, San Diego and San Jose rank first, second and forth, respectively, for cities where residents are most likely to spend their free time getting sweaty and hitting up local health and fitness events. New York City snagged the third spot.
And while the East Coast is represented in the top 10 thanks to cities including NYC, Boston and Baltimore, San Fran swept the top spot in all fitness categories. It was even dubbed the “The Work(out) Hard Play Hard City,” where cooking classes and pop-up dining experiences are equally as popular as racing and taking yoga classes.
But if you were wondering about who loves their bacon the most (because who isn’t constantly thinking about bacon?)…New York City boasts the greatest participation at events for the savory treat.
Here are Eventbrite’s top 10 US cities for attendance at fitness events:
- San Francisco
- San Diego
- New York City
- San Jose
- Los Angeles
