Minneapolis Second Fittest City

The American College of Sports Medicine's American Fitness Index Report ranks Minneapolis the second fittest of the fifty largest cities in the country. The only fitter city, according to ACSM, is Washington, DC.

The reasons they give for Minneapolis' fitness include the number of people biking and walking to work, the amount of parkland within the city, the number of park facilities (tennis courts, dog parks, golf courses, playgrounds, etc), and the number of farmers markets in town.
