There’s the treadmill, jogging, high-intensity interval training, combined group fitness classes, and yoga. It seems like gyms and fitness refimens are popping up more often. But where are Americans the fittest?
A new poll put together by Gallup and Sharecare has ranked the cities that exercise the most, ranking them from 1 to 189. They took a look at the habits of exercisers over a week. They were deemed “regular exercisers” if they worked out 30 minutes a day for at least three days a week.
More than 350,000 adults, compiled from every state, took part in the survey, Live Science reported.
Boulder, Colorado came in as the most fit city in the nation, with almost 70 percent of those polled saying they regularly exercised. The least fit of the 189 cities was the Hickory, Lenoir, Morganton, North Carolina, region, with 41.8 percent.
Seattle came in at 46. Charlotte and its neighbors ranked at 87. West Palm Beach lumped with Miami and Fort Lauderdale and came in at 95. Boston and its surrounding communities ranked at 104. The Atlanta area came in at 113, and Pittsburgh was 131. Orlando was 143.
