Salt Lake City is the Fittest City

Posted Jan 22 2009 3:57pm

The World Health Organization estimates 1.6 billion adults, ages 15 and up, were overweight and 400 million adults were obese, worldwide. So, where are all these fat people coming from? Definitely not Salt Lake City! A new survey found Salt Lake, Utah, Colorado Springs, Colorado and Minneapolis, Minnesota are the top 3 fittest cities in the United States. But, Miami, Florida, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and San Antonio, Texas made the list as America’s top 3 fattest cities; via Men’s Fitness.

We better watch out! There’s going to be an all brawl between U.S. cities. In November, the Centers for Disease Control said Burlington, Vermont has the healthiest people in America. Although, Las Vegas has got to be happy, they broke their 2-year streak of being the fattest city in the country. Kudos!

As a nation, we need to reel this obesity thing in. Obesity costs the U.S. more than $100 billion a year.
