Activity tracking company Fitbit recently poured through all of their activity data and sorted them by city, allowing them to get geographical inforation about their residents on average and rank them accordingly.

As you would expect, New York City takes the most steps of all and also has the most overall activity. Given the high stress levels of the average New Yorker, one surprising result they found was that we have the third lowest resting heart rate of all cities. Go figure!

Fitbit researchers looked at aggregated data from over 10 million users in 2015* and crunched the numbers to figure out which cities ranked highest overall. After evaluating the average number of steps, active minutes, resting heart rate, and sleep duration, several spots stood out. Here are the top ten fittest cities in America. Plus, where those cities (and others) rank for each of the four Fitbit fit factors.
