How did they go about deciding what cities are the fittest and fattest? I see Miami on the fattest cities list, yet I think it should be one of the fittest. All people do down there is work out and worry about how they look. I notice the difference in looks when I fly back down from New York.

 

The funny thing is I've gone to Jacksonville a few times and I swear it seems like everyone there is super fat. These rankings are BS.
