Best place live, Austin ranked # 1

According to this US news article, 100 Best Places to Live in the USA 2017, Austin is the number one place in the country to live.

Also, from this Forbes article, America's Fastest-Growing Cities 2016:

“Austin regains the No. 1 spot after being toppled by Houston last year. Thanks to its booming technology, pharmaceutical and biotech industries, low cost of living, and cachet, the Austin economy remains on fire...The city has topped our list of Fastest-Growing Cities for five of the past six years." 

We scouted out a lot of cities before deciding on our Austin Personal Trainer location.  Good fortune has smiled on us.  We are grateful that it has worked out so well along with our New Orleans Personal Trainer location. 

Things are growing in Austin

A couple of years back the Austin area was growing at a rate of 165 residents a day. The growth continues. A quote from Get ready for new neighbors: City to nearly double in size:

“Austin is poised to grow faster than any other large U.S. city in the next 25 years, nearly doubling in population.”

This blog is primarily concerned with health and fitness. Not unrelated to health is the environment where you live and the opportunities presented.  Our first location, New Orleans Fitness Trainers, has been good for us, but a little over ten years ago we opened our second location, Austin Personal Training.  It has worked out well. We moved into our new location this year with expanded offerings – more than twice the space, massage, added equipment, and stretching classes.
