There have been many lists showing the fittest cities in America but lately, with obesity becoming a lethal epidemic worldwide, it’s even more important to think about which cities may be succeeding in health, and which ones are not.

The majority of this list was compiled from multiple fitness and heath sources, the main one being TIME magazine.2

The fittest cities in America may just encompass one of the places you want to raise your future family, or possibly even consider moving your family there now.

We can’t sit in ignorance or oblivion wondering what those citizens are doing right and what the rest of us are doing wrong.

So here they are: the 11 fittest cities in America!

1. Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota

Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota

Who doesn’t love the twin cities?

At first I thought because these are essentially two cities together, that’s why their fitness stats are through the roof.

But maybe that’s just my simple-minded thinking in trying to understand the fact that New York is not on this list!

Nevertheless, people from Minnesota seem to exercise (Ha, no pun intended!) a variety of factors to keep their city on the list of the fittest cities in America, one of them being that they have easy access to fresh foods from farms not far outside the city!

For example, dairy can be inundated with hormones that can cause many health problems, especially weight gain.

But lucky for twin city residents, they have fresh dairy products right at their fingertips.

I guess this part of America really does have the best cheeses.

2. Washington, District of Columbia

Washington, District of Columbia

The capital city of our great nation, and apparently it’s the capital of fitness too.

It’s hard to pinpoint what exactly residents of Washington, D.C do that classifies them as one of the fittest cities in America.

My theory is that all the tourists from around the world come together to make up a fairly healthy population.

It’s that or the lunches in Congress are made up of only salads and clean foods.

Regardless, the warm weather and historical side of this awesome city make that reason enough for me to pick up and move here;2

the icing on the cake is that I’ll have jogging buddies to race through the capital with.
