Each year, the Sports & Fitness Industry Association conducts national online interviews to determine activity participation, activities of choice, and other sport- and fitness-related statistics throughout the U.S. One data point involves activity levels by city. After compiling and analyzing responses from 32,658 interviews for the 2016 Tracking the Fitness Movement report, SFIA determined which parts of the country could need extra motivation to move in 2017. Here is SFIA’s list of the 10 least active cities/metropolitan areas:

  1. Tampa–St. Petersburg (Sarasota), Florida
  2. Orlando-Daytona Beach–Melbourne, Florida
  3. Houston
