States in the Best Shape in America
Data was compiled into these two main categories to determine the states in the best shape:
- health status, and
- lifestyle indicators
These categories were then further broken down to include obesity, diabetes, heart disease, wellness check-ups, exercise, and local fitness infrastructure. By analyzing metrics from all of the above, Runreviews was able to determine which U.S. states were in the best shape.
The top five states in America in the best shape are as follows:
- District of Columbia
- New Hampshire
