The index ranks the nation’s 100 most populous cities on 33 personal health and community fitness indicators, ranging from rates of exercise and diabetes to city assets such as parks and biking infrastructure. Arizona State University professor Barbara Ainsworth, who chairs the American Fitness Index Advisory Board, said the rankings highlight the role of public investment in health-enhancing infrastructure. “The top cities are consistently ranking in the top order because they have better bike trails, more parks that are close to where people can walk to them,” she said.[6]
