America's Fittest Cities: Find Out Which Ones Made the List!

Posted: Updated:

The annual American Fitness Index rankings released by the American College of Sports Medicine takes into account city policies, community resources and their effects on the health, plus wellness and fitness of their residents.

Minneapolis topped the list with a score of 78.2 points. Followed by Washington D.C., Portland, Oregon, San Francisco, and Denver to round out the top five cities.    

Memphis, Tennessee, Louisville, Kentucky, San Antonio, Texas,  and Detroit, Michigan were near the bottom of the list.      

Oklahoma City ranked last -- a place it's held each year since the rankings were first released in 2008. But despite its last place position, the advisory board that compiles the report says the city has made progress.  Oklahoma City debuted on the list with a score of 24 points, and this year they scored 31.2 points.
