America’s Fittest Cities; The A List
What are America’s fittest cities? It depends on whom you ask, and how they do the math. One recent effort by experts chosen by the American College of Sports Medicine looked at two types of personal health indicators of a city’s population — including conditions like hypertension, obesity and diabetes, as well as behaviors like smoking and exercise. They also reviewed qualities of the built environment of each city: how many public parks were there? How many recreational centers and farmer’s markets? See their complete list here. And the top ten winners are…Minneapolis, Washington D.C., Boston, San Francisco, Hartford, Sacramento, Portland, Oregon, Seattle, Denver, and Austin.
