Guess which state is the country’s most active?

All of those walks to brunch, sprints to your workout, and treks through the snow are finally paying off: New York is the most active state in the country, according to Fitbit.

In a recent study, the fitness-tracker company looked at two years worth of data from all 50 states, analyzing how much activity and how many steps people wearing their devices were logging. New York State, with an average of 7734 steps, beat out the other top contender (and much sunnier) states like California and Hawaii in the winter.

Admittedly, the sheer number of New Yorkers willing to incorporate a Fitbit into their arm parties could skew the data, but FitBit says that advantage was neutralized by the company basing step and activity averages off of the data of more than one million users nationwide.  

But the walkability of New York City must have helped the Empire State reach #1—it takes a lot of steps to walk to SoulCycle and Liquiteria every day. —Molly Gallagher
