Not bad Raleigh! According to the American Fitness Index, Raleigh ranks as the 15th fittest metropolis in the U.S. The study, done by the American College of Sports Medicine, is based on health behaviors including smoking, exercise, obesity rates, chronic health problems, and access to health care. It also takes into account the environment, including things like the availability of parks and recreational facilities, walking trails, and farmers’ markets. Raleigh has plenty of parks and a fantastic greenway system, and has taken other steps such as banning smoking in many public spaces to increase overall health. Visit USA Today for the full list!
