Rochester Is The 8th Fittest City In America According To Fitbit
Have you joined the Fitbit craze? I have a few friends who are pretty obsessed with counting their steps every day. I've thought about getting a fitness tracker eventually - especially since I apparently live in one of the fittest cities in the nation. Nice!
For those of you who aren't quite sure what a Fitbit is, it's a tech device you wear on your wrist that can tracks activity data like the amount of steps walked, climbed, heart rate, sleep, and a few other things related to fitness. A fitness watch, basically.
The company just came out with a list that ranks the fittest cities in the country according to their own Fitbit data, and Rochester came in at #8. Hey, that's pretty neat! It makes me want to go for a jog on one of our many bike paths right now. And since Mayo is here, we better be pretty healthy, ya know?
Interestingly, another Minnesota city claimed the top spot in the list: Duluth.
Here's the full Top 10:
1. Duluth, MN
2. Appleton, WI
3. Eau Claire, WI
4. Boulder, CO
5. Bellingham, WA
6. Madison, WI
7. Billings, MT
8. Rochester, MN (YEAHHHHHHH)
9. Spokane, WA
10. Eugene, OR
I'll be honest, I'm a little skeptical about Wisconsin being on this list three times. Although if Fitbit is saying that cheese = fitness, I am fully on board.
