"Arlington's longstanding commitment to being a fit city serves as a model for all communities in the U.S.," authors of the ACSM American Fitness Index report wrote.
The mission of the annual index is to highlight what cities are doing and how they can "make their residents stronger, fitter, and healthier," the report read.
This is even more vital now as our country tries to emerge from a "health care crisis not seen since the last century."
