America’s Top 10 Fittest Cities

| by Lauren Schiff

This infographic from Business Insider maps out the fittest cities in America, both in general and in terms of which type of exercise each one sees to the greatest extent.

The data used is as modern as it gets: cities have been ranked based information gathered through “the population's use of Facebook fitness apps, gym check-ins, and health-related status updates.”

Overall, it seems as though weather is by no means an exercise deterrent, though with summer nearly in full swing, there’s a lot more sunshine to take advantage of, and a lot more daylight to use for getting in some good workouts!
