‘Fittest City in America’ is Salt Lake magazine says

SALT LAKE CITY ” Men’s Fitness magazine has named Salt Lake City the nation’s fittest city in its annual ranking.

Following Salt Lake on the list are Colorado Springs, Colo.; Minneapolis; Denver; and Albuquerque, N.M. The magazine says Salt Lake earned the distinction because of its park space and athletically motivated residents.

The magazine named Miami the “Fattest City in America,” followed by Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Las Vegas and New York.

The magazine conducts a national survey of 50 cities in the U.S. to determine the rankings on its lists.

Salt Lake wasn’t ranked on last year’s fittest cities list; Colorado Springs was No. 1. Miami was No. 7 on the fattest cities list in 2008 and Las Vegas was No. 1.
