Facebook names Tacoma 9th fittest city in the United States

Facebook fitnessTACOMA – Millions of people use Facebook to keep track of their health and fitness, so it would make sense a study of that data would be able to track the fittest cities in the country.

According to this new data Tacoma came in as the 9th fittest city. Virginia Beach, VA ranked number one on the list, while Albuquerque, NM rounded out the top ten.

The data was based on fitness-related status updates, check in’s and the use of fitness apps in U.S. cities. Cities had to have at least 200,000 Facebook users.

    There is a large number of people that own homes in Tacoma and commute to Seattle via Sound Transit every day. They walk from where the 590 stops downtown. There are people that walk several miles after getting off the 590 to get to their jobs. This could be a factor in fitness.
