This Is the Fittest City in America

1 minute read

Looking to make a healthy lifestyle change? You might want to pack your bags and head for the capital: For the third year in a row, Washington, D.C. has been named the fittest city in America.

The annual American Fitness Index has once again rewarded D.C. residents for frequent exercise, low smoking rates and other factors that contribute to overall health. Washington and other cities benefit from the more active lifestyle that comes from using public transportation and readily available parks and fitness centers, USA Today reports.

Minneapolis took second place, and Denver rounded out the top three on the health index. Indianapolis was ranked the least fit, followed by Oklahoma City and Louisville.
