Study: Miami is 32nd Fittest Metro, Behind Cleveland, Jacksonville

Get fit

We're not as fit as we thought we were, according to the American College of Sports Medicine.

In an in-depth study searching for the fitness level of the 50 largest metros in the country, South Florida -- encompassing Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach -- ranked 32nd, behind cities like Cleveland (25th), Kansas City (30th), and Jacksonville (31st), to name a few.

Miami fared strong in areas like Walk Score, state Physical Education requirements, and swimming pools per capita. We graded poorly in the number of people in very good or excellent health, diabetes rate, heart disease rate, and park playgrounds per capita.

Drop and give us ten.
