Wellness Wednesday: Let's Get to Work, Greater Cincinnati!

from The River City News

Editor’s note: Even cities ranking highly on the American Fitness Index have areas to which improvement is needed. Cincinnati participated in the AFI Technical Assistance Program in 2014 and the coalition is currently implementing their strategic plan to improve the health of residents.

Let’s pretend you just took an exam.

You await anxiously for the professor to hand back your test. He or she announces your name, you raise your hand, and they approach you. As they get closer, their arm becomes fully extended with the test folded in half to hide your score. Sweat beads begin to trickle down your face thanks to the 90 degree temperatures. You reach for the test in return and see your score in giant red ink.

Whether your name is Cincinnati or Louisville, you just failed the annual American College of Sports Medicine American Fitness Index with a total score of 52.7 and 31.8.

These scores rank Cincinnati as 23rd and Louisville 48th, respectively out of 50 of the largest Metropolitan areas in the nation. The Washington, DC metropolitan area was ranked first with a score of 77.9.

A score of 77.9? What does this score mean? more
