Austin has become a hot spot because of it’s job opportunities, outdoor lifestyle, and small town vibe, but it is also one of the fittest cities in Texas. That being said, there are so many apartments to choose from for all types of lifestyles.
Perks of Living in the city:
- Hundreds of fitness studios.
- Apartment communities that offer resort style pools, state-of-the-art gyms, fitness classes, and yes, personal trainers.
- Some of the best scenic running trails in Texas. Lady Bird Lake Trail is Austin’s No. 1 destination for running and walking while enjoying the natural beauty of Austin. The 10-mile loop is both lush and urban, and gets 1.5 million visitors per year. Read about some of my other favorite hike and bike trails.
When you live in such an active city, one question is “Where is the best place to live to take advantage of all of the fitness perks that Austin has to offer?” Below is my list of the top Stay Fit in Austin Apartments. Ask About Free Personal Training Sessions with Sydney.
