Representing the Pacific Northwest yet again, Seattle, WA and Portland, OR are among the five fittest cities in the United States, according to Planet Green.

Portland, coming in as the fifth most fit city in the country, has an obesity rate of 23.9%, but has a regular exercise rate of 82.3%.  Seattle, the fourth most fit city, has an obesity rate of 22.8% and a regular exercise rate of 81.9%.

Being amongst the fittest cities in the country means that Portland and Seattle practice sustainability on a regular basis.  Whether it’s by riding bikes and walking to destinations, or a greater use of public transportation, the Pacific Northwest is well-represented.
