How healthy is the city where you live? A ranked list from the health and wellness company Mindbody can help you find out. The Mindbody app is a useful tool that connects people to the different wellness services nearby, be it fitness, spas and other wellness experiences.


The following list is part of Mindbody’s annual Wellness Index, one of the most comprehensive studies in the industry. This study aims to provide a holistic view of wellness across America, including factors such as sufficient sleep, stress levels, connection to community and spirituality, among other wellness behaviors and attitudes. To compile the list, Mindbody surveyed 16,000 adults in the 50 most populated cities across the country and then ranked those cities from least to most healthy.


You can find the complete list through the company’s website. Here are the top 10:


  1. Miami, FL
  2. Los Angeles, CA
  3. San Diego, CA
  4. Atlanta, GA
  5. Washington, DC
  6. San Francisco, CA
  7. San Jose, CA
  8. Austin, TX
  9. Seattle, WA
  10. Raleigh, NC


Once again, Miami has retained its title as the Healthiest City in America. Residents here are the most likely to exercise at least once a week and for a total of 90 minutes or more on a weekly basis. Miami ranks highest for those who are the least stressed, the most well-rested and the most connected to their community.


California boasts 4 of the top 10 cities for health and wellness. Los Angeles moved up to second place from seventh last year with a large number of non-smokers and people who exercise at least 90 minutes per week. The city also has the third highest percentage of residents who feel spiritually fulfilled.


Another notable change from previous years is Raleigh, which jumped into the top 10 from #28 in 2021. The city has seen a decrease in excessive alcohol consumption along with an increase in the number of residents who exercise 90 minutes or more each week.


In each of these cities, you can use the Mindbody app to search for wellness resources and offerings such as fitness memberships, workout classes, wellness services and beauty appointments. No matter where you are, the Mindybody app makes it easy to maintain your health and wellness routine, whether you’re looking for a yoga class in Boston or a spa treatment in Dallas. Wellness-minded travelers will appreciate the ability to search by location as well as Mindbody’s comprehensive database of services.
