When it comes to America’s most fitness friendly cities, count Missoula in.
For second year in a row, the Garden City has the top spot in Smart Asset’s latest survey. It has ranked in the top five for each of the study’s five years.
Here’s what Smart Asset said of Missoula:
“Missoula has mostly improved on last year’s numbers. This year’s data shows that Missoula has 36 fitness professionals per 10,000 workers and 137 fitness centers per 10,000 businesses.
“Both of those metrics are higher than last year’s. In fact, Missoula has the highest concentration of fitness businesses in the country, so residents don’t need to go far to find a recreation or fitness center.
“ All things considered, it’s not surprising that we’ve also highlighted Missoula as a top city for an active retirement.”
This year’s top five cities also included Ames, Iowa; Corvallis, Oregon; Bend, Oregon; and State College, Pennsylvania.
