Apartment Living BlogFitness & Style › The Top 10 Cities For Outdoor Fitness In the U.S.

Gyms are all well and good, but sometimes you just need a run through nature. Especially in the modern age, where more and more people are taking desk jobs and almost everyone spends most of their time inside, fresh air and Vitamin D is in short supply. If outdoor fitness is one of your passions, make sure to visit these cities and take a run through their beautiful outdoor areas.

Dallas, Texas

Dallas is an industrialized city, sure, and it’s a great place to move if you need to be around other technology-minded people. But there are parks and trails everywhere in this beautiful city, and you’re sure to find something you’re interested in here. Wildlife is also abundant in Dallas, so don’t be surprised to see critters all around when you’re on your morning run.

Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte is a city that’s growing fast; it’s one of the best up-and-coming places for people to live. Even with its huge metropolitan areas, Charlotte has great parks and trails due to its climate, which is great for outdoors fitness year-round. If you need a place that can accommodate your fitness routine, whether it’s December or July, Charlotte is where you should be looking.

Orlando, Florida

Orlando is a tourist destination, no doubt about it. Sometimes, however, those tourists can be a little overwhelming, and that’s where Orlando’s beautiful outdoor areas come in handy. Some of the best outdoor trails in the city are best on bikes, which is great if you love a couple miles of biking in the morning. Even if you don’t, picking it up is easy, and you’ll be rewarded by the beautiful greenery and lovely wildlife wherever you go in Orlando.

Phoenix, Arizona

Sure, you’ve almost definitely heard about Phoenix‘s sweltering summers, and it’s definitely not cold in July. However, the warm climate actually makes for some great sights, and the mountains nearby allow for shade even in the summer. Those same mountains have created incredible Phoenix-exclusive hiking trails, and it’s hard to beat watching nationally-loved sunsets on top of a beautiful mountain that you just hiked.

New York City, New York

The sheer chaos of New York City is difficult to beat. With so many people living in such a small space, you may be tempted to just brush the city off and resign yourself to an indoor gym. Not so! There are over a thousand parks, and running clubs and events make this city one of the best for outdoor fitness. Whether you’re in the planning stages or you’ve been doing a morning run for ten years, New York City’s got you covered.

Los Angeles, California

LA is home to some of the nation’s best and brightest minds, and those minds are best served by some outdoor exercise every now and then. You can find great hiking trails everywhere in and around Los Angeles, and the options are nearly endless. Looking over this bustling city as the sun rises is an experience that can’t be beat.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Pittsburgh is a beautiful city with urban flair everywhere. However, that urban feeling doesn’t mean you have to look elsewhere for fitness in the great outdoors. The well-placed parks and trails in the city make it easy to get to a beautiful area no matter where you start off. You don’t have to settle for a boring morning run in the Steel City.

Denver, Colorado

Colorado is a nature-friendly state, and Denver is no exception. It’s a beautiful city that has a bustling industrial scene, but also miles of incredible trails, and the cool weather even allows for skiing in the winter! If you’re looking for a beautiful place to start your outdoor fitness routine, you really don’t need to look any further than this.

Las Cruces, New Mexico

Las Cruces has become a hotspot for its more than 350 days of sunshine per year. The sunny atmosphere combined with its beautiful surroundings makes Las Cruces one of the best places for outdoor fitness. There are paths for walking, running, and biking, and all of them are easy to access and fun to be around.

El Paso, Texas

El Paso is a beautiful city, and its sunny weather adds to the appeal of a place to exercise outdoors year-round. Even better, there are some great unique things to do outside in El Paso, and you shouldn’t miss any of them. From climbing mountains to horseback riding to just taking a walk through their national parks, El Paso has something for you.

Leaving your apartment for a run, walk, or hike has never been easier. Enjoy these cities and all the outdoor fun they have to offer.
