Study Says NC Is Into Fitness—Here’s Where to Shape Up

NC stacks up as one of the most fitness-obsessed states.

If you “be up in the gym just working on your fitness,” you’re not alone. A new study recently revealed that NC nabbed the eighth spot on the list of U.S. states most obsessed with fitness. And the East Coast even shaped up to claim seven of the top 10 spots to boot. 

The study, conducted by PriceListo, examined search volume data for wording, searches and other terms per 100,000 people related to working out or staying in shape throughout the last year to determine which states were keen to stay in peak physical condition. (Here’s looking at all of you who made their New Year’s resolution hitting the gym more!)

Fun fact: The highest searched term from each state is Planet Fitness—shout out to the country’s biggest gym chain—with an average total of 14,257,400 searches per month over all 50 states.
