America’s fittest cities

The American College of Sports Medicine has released its annual rankings of America’s 100 "Fittest Cities" and Arlington, Virginia came out on top.   

Arlington’s numerous bike trails and parks helped it win first place.

Minneapolis, last year’s "Fittest City," was just four-tenths of a point behind in this year’s ranking.

Rounding out the top five are Washington, D.C., Madison, Wisconsin and Portland, Oregon.

"The top things for these cities is that they have wonderful opportunities for being physically active and having a high quality of life," says Barbara Ainsworth of the American College of Sports Medicine.

It’s not just exercise that counts, healthy cities also have low smoking rates and easy access to fresh fruit and vegetables at farmer’s markets.

Oklahoma City came in last at number 100.
