Three Colorado Cities Make Top Five for Where People Exercise the Most

A report released Monday by Gallup and Sharecare finds that exercise is on the rise in the U.S., with a record-setting 53.4 percent of Americans reporting that they regularly worked out three or more times a week in 2016. 

I am not sure what they categorize as "exercise," but I am pretty sure that getting off the couch to get snacks and beer doesn't count. So sorry for bringing the number down for our area, but it doesn't seem like I hurt us much... 

Here are the 10 communities with the highest rates of regular exercise:

  1. Boulder, CO
  2. Fort Collins, CO
  3. San Luis Obispo-Paso Robles, CA
  4. Greeley, CO
  5. Santa Rosa, CA
  6. Honolulu, HI
  7. Hilton Head Island-Bluffton-Beaufort, SC
  8. Anchorage, AK
  9. Clarksville, TN-KY
  10. Chico, CA

And these are the communities with the lowest rates of regular exercise:

  1. Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton, NC
  2. Akron, OH
  3. Cedar Rapids, IA
  4. Montgomery, AL
  5. Toledo, OH
  6. Buffalo-Cheektowaga-Niagara Falls, NY
  7. Spartanburg, SC
  8. Gulfport-Biloxi-Pascagoula, MS
  9. Rockford, IL
  10. Roanoke, VA
