Sharecare Names Top 10 Fittest Cities in America
Company Also Reveals Web’s Most Influential Fitness Experts to Help Anyone, Anywhere Get in Shape
ATLANTA, GA–(Marketwired – January 15, 2014) – If you’re like most people, you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to get healthier in 2014, and that involves some form of exercise. While many will abandon their quest for self-improvement before January is over, Sharecare, the online health and wellness engagement platform founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz and Jeff Arnold, today identified the places where people stick to fitness regimens year-round, and announced the Top 10 Fittest Cities in America: Denver; San Francisco; San Diego; Boston; Sacramento, Calif.; Seattle; Portland, Ore.; Salt Lake City; Los Angeles; and Austin, Texas.
Getting in better shape doesn’t just improve your waistline — exercising can yield a cascade of positive outcomes, including healthier eating, reduced risk of heart disease and diabetes, lower stress and higher energy. Additionally, regularly engaging in some form of light to moderate exercise can actually help you live longer — up to 2.3 years for men and 2.8 for women.
To identify the fittest cities, Sharecare examined answers from approximately one million people who took the RealAge® Test, Sharecare’s scientifically based health risk assessment which determines the biological age of your body based on your health status, and good and bad health habits. This analysis also revealed the 10 cities where residents exercise the least: Knoxville, Tenn.; Nashville, Tenn.; Louisville, Ky.; Memphis, Tenn.; Greenville, S.C.; Oklahoma City; Columbus, Ohio; Greensboro, N.C.; Tampa, Fla.; and St. Louis.
Regardless of how fit your city is, many online resources that provide fitness inspiration and motivation are available, including www.sharecare.com/fitness, where you can find information about how to start a fitness plan. Additionally, Sharecare today released its curated list of the most influential fitness experts on the Web, the Top 10 Social HealthMakers on Fitness: Cassey Ho: A Pilates and fitness instructor, creator of POP Pilates and founder of Blogilates.com, Ho has been honored as one of YouTube’s Next Trainers, with her videos having received more than 13 million views.
