Ugly and miserable but quite fit

Philly has made the top 10 of yet another national ranking but this list is more positive than other honors the city has been awarded.

Our miserable and ugly city has been ranked as the sixth fittest city in the U.S. by the American College of Sports Medicine.

An article in USA Today listed the percentage of people who exercised regularly and maintained a healthy weight as indicators for healthy cities. This is a big improvement for Philly. Just 9 years ago our fair city was ranked as the fattest city, with 29 percent of the population categorized as obese.

 Keep it up Philly, run those Rocky steps.
