Where NKY Cities Rank on "Fit" List

Some Northern Kentucky cities are in better shape than others, according to analysis by BarBend, a strength training resource and news outlet, which compiled a list of the fittest and least fit cities across the state.

BarBend assigned weight to a variety of variables in determining the score: exercise opportunity access, physical inactivity, access to healthy food, adult obesity, air pollution, smoking, frequent physical distress, poor physical health days, drinking water violations, excessive drinking, and frequent mental distress. Full methodology can be seen here.
