When it comes to living healthy, Massachusetts and Rhode Island are at the top of the list.

In fact, Rhode Island happens to be #1, according to a new study done by sports nutrition brand, MyProtein, while Massachusetts rounds out the Top 10 at #10.

Research was conducted by MyProtein to determine the best places for leading a healthy lifestyle, ranking all 50 states, as well as Washington, DC, for three different factors, including availability and affordability.

According to their study, the number of gyms per 100,000 people and the percentage of residents living within a 10-minute walk of a park were considered in terms of availability.

MyProtein compared the cost of a gym membership, tennis court rental, and healthy grocery shop with the average salary in each state to determine affordability.

By the way, New Hampshire came in 14th, and as for dead last, that honor belongs to West Virginia.
