Denver is commonly known for its healthy mindset and exercise culture, and The Mile High City consistently earns high rankings as a top healthy city due, in part, to its 300 days of sunshine as well as the city’s prime location with easy access to all the recreational fun of the Rockies. According to the ACSM American Fitness Index in 2022, Denver is the ninth-fittest city in the country, citing factors like proximity to outdoor space, physical activity options and residents’ personal health. In January 2022, WalletHub ranked Denver No. 9 among U.S. cities for active lifestyles as well. A study from the Bankers Life Center for a Secure Retirement noted Denver as the third best city in America for a healthy retirement.
