PORTLAND – Portland was just ranked the “Fittest City in America” according to Men’s Fitness magazine.

The magazine compiled the 50 most populous cities in the country and ranked them from fittest to fattest.

The criteria the magazine looked at were air quality, access to healthy food, quality of parks, urban forests, and data on how active citizens are.

The West Coast did very well in the list with San Francisco coming in at No. 2 and Seattle taking the third spot.

Memphis came in dead last on the list with El Paso, Texas right on its heels for fattest city at No. 49.
