It’s no secret that Austin is an amazing city to live in. It was named the Best Place to Live in the United States in 2017 and boasts a high ranking for quality of life. This isn’t surprising, as Austin has a large focus on an active lifestyle. As such, we’ve narrowed down the areas of Austin to the five best places for exercise enthusiasts on the hunt for Austin real estate that will best fit their lifestyles.

Downtown Austin

Austin is one of the United States’ healthiest cities, making this neighborhood a prime candidate for fit home buyers looking for Austin real estate. The downtown Austin area has a large array of options for maintaining fitness, including cycling and yoga studios, not to mention Crossfit Central Downtown, which is one of America’s top Crossfit gyms. For those looking for exercise buddies, the local shops can give you plenty of information about groups that meet regularly to get their running or biking fix. There’s a Gold’s Gym located on Sixth Street, and with 10 miles of The Roy and Ann Butler Hike and Bike Trails Lining Lady Bird Lake, outdoors accessibility is tremendous.

South Lamar

This neighborhood is a more affordable option when it comes to exercise-conscious Austin real estate that’s still close enough to downtown (15 minutes; 4 miles) to take advantage of all its options. South Lamar also has its own gems to add to your fitness routine, including iLoveKickboxing, the Fit Pit, and Punch Kettlebell Gym. For outdoors adventures, South Lamar features a cold-water workout at Barton Springs Pool, a number of access points to the greenbelt, and the Butler Park Pitch and Putt.

The Domain Area

In north Austin, this neighborhood is for exercise junkies who commute northwards each day. It offers exercise options comparable to downtown, with studios like CorePower Yoga, SoulCycle, Pure Austin Fitness, and two locations of Orangetheory. The Domain also plays host to Topgolf for those looking to unwind and keep on top of their fitness game with family and friends.


Just south of The Domain, this neighborhood gives you true housing options in your Austin real estate search, with the ability to stay north. It has many options for updated homes and features three yoga studios, three Crossfit boxes, and four big box gyms all in one area for phenomenal workout options close to home. Whenever you feel like switching up your exercise routine, head to The Domain (a 15 minute drive) for over 10 additional fitness choices.

Circle C

This master-planned community boasts a delightful variety of entertainment, shopping, and exercise options for the home buyer looking for a little of everything in Austin real estate. It claims the establishment of fitness dreams—Life Time Fitness, which features a large workout space, class options to please each patron, plus a café, spa, and lounge. However, for the more focused exercise enthusiast, try Circle C’s smaller scale options, including PURE Yoga Texas, Grey Rock Golf Academy, or The Little Gym of South Austin, to get your fitness fix. Situated just off Mopac Expressway, this neighborhood offers residents easy access to numerous activities just a short drive away.
