The MINDBODY Wellness Index ranks the health of the 50 top US cities (by population). How does the index rank them? A number of factors contribute to a city’s score, including how much locals prioritize wellness and ultimately invest in it (including fitness, beauty/grooming, and integrative health services), their healthy habits, and the success of wellness businesses within the city.
Raleigh, like San Francisco and Seattle, has very few smokers. Seventy-six percent exercise at least once a week. Raleigh is also the HIIT capital of the US, with more HIIT enthusiasts per capita than any other top city.
