Salt Lake City is the fittest city in America — here are 24 more

The flip side of the coin when it comes to discussing the fattest cities in America is, of course, which cities are home to the fittest populations.

Using a host of criteria focusing on the healthy lifestyles of certain urban centers, Men’s Fitness magazine has labeled these 25 cities the country’s most fit:

  1. Salt Lake City
  2. Colorado Springs
  3. Minneapolis
  4. Denver
  5. Albuquerque
  6. Portland
  7. Honolulu
  8. Seattle
  9. Omaha
  10. Virginia Beach
  11. Milwaukee
  12. San Francisco
  13. Tucson
  14. Boston
  15. Cleveland
  16. St. Louis
  17. Austin
  18. Washington
  19. Sacramento
  20. Oakland
  21. Atlanta
  22. Fresno
  23. Tampa
  24. Nashville
  25. Pittsburgh

It’s interesting how so many of these are either in the Midwest or West, which I suppose gives support to the argument that life is generally better outside the Northeast corridor.
