It’s that time of year again! Time to see which cities are the least fit based on the American College of Sports Medicine’s American Fitness Index. Every year the organization compares factors such as walkability, school physical education requirements, recreational facilities, obesity, diabetes and smoking rates. The result is a 50-city list of slow, steady improvement.
For the number one fittest MSA (metropolitan statistical area) Washington DC, 80 percent of people claimed that they exercised in the last 30 days. This is a pretty impressive feat but keep in mind that it is DC after all, a city full of politicians. And politicians love to lie, just ask Lyin’ Ted!
