Fittest Cities in the USA

1. Washington D.C.

America's fittest city is Washington D.C. It scores high on almost every measure of fitness, whether it's bicycling commuters, farmers' markets or recreation centers.

2. Boston, Massachusetts
Boston's relatively affluent population avoids cigarettes and stays trim. The state also mandates that all its residents have health insurance.


3. Minneapolis, Minnesota
A penchant for exercise offsets slightly above-average obesity rates in the Twin Cities.
4. Seattle, Washington
The Pacific Northwest either produces or attracts healthy citizens. Seattle scores high by providing physical education classes for kids and tennis courts for adults.
5. Portland, Oregon
Portland is dotted with dog parks, doctors' offices and "no smoking" signs--which add up to impressive health stats.
6. Denver, Colorado
The Mile High City has low rates of disability and heart disease.

7. Sacramento, California
With a high percentage of people reporting they walk or bike to work, Sacramento exercises more than its western peer San Francisco.
8. San Francisco, California
Low poverty rates in the Bay Area go hand in hand with lower rates of diabetes, smoking and obesity.
9. Hartford, Connecticut
Hartford denizens enjoy a disproportionate number of farmers' markets, baseball diamonds and golf courses--and eat lots of fruits and vegetables.
10. Austin, Texas
Austin has a high number of parks and pools per capita--and low rates of asthma and heart disease.
