Fittest or Fattest

Share

The American College of Sports Medicine [ACSM] ranked the following cities as fittest in the US. To rank big metropolitan areas, health and fitness experts analyzed government data from the 15 most populous cities in the country and Indianapolis, where ACSM is headquartered. They took into consideration a number of health indicators, including the percentage of people who exercise regularly, maintain a healthy weight, eat the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables, have access to health care, have health insurance and don't smoke. They also looked at the environment, including the availability of parks, walking/bike trails and public transportation.  This new analysis, called the American Fitness Index, is different from the rankings of fittest and fattest cities previously released, although some of the targeted health indicators are similar. Government statistics show that about 66% of adults are overweight or obese, which increases their risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer.
