Health + Wellness


Cincinnati takes an innovative approach to getting fit. The city is home to the leading wellness website Sparkpeople and health initiatives like Go Vibrant, designed to get downtown workers moving during the work day. And through its Empowering Communities Strategy, Interact for Health, a catalyst for health and wellness, awards Thriving Community grants to help organizations in the Cincinnati region transform their neighborhoods to support well-being and make healthy choices easy and affordable. Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky are also blessed with extensive urban park systems with miles of hiking, biking and blading trails that helped us earn a top ranking in Outside Magazine. And with self-help centers like Main Street's Yoga Row and the rise of locally sourced foods and restaurants, you'll find plenty of ways to stay healthy here.
