Fred Bodimer

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – St. Louis finds itself at the very bottom of another lifestyle list. 

Men’s Health Magazine is out with its annual list of the best cities for men in terms of health, fitness and overall quality of life. Madison, Wisconsin is number one, Fargo, North Dakota is number two. Plano, Texas, Burlington, Vermont and San Jose, California round out the top five.

Way down at the bottom – the VERY bottom – at number 100, is St. Louis. The editors of Men’s Health broke the rankings down to three categories — health, we’re 98th… fitness, we’re 97th…and quality of life….number 74.  Add them up and those numbers put St. Louis at the bottom of the list.

Joining the Gateway City in the basement: Memphis, TN (#96), Detroit, MI (#97), Birmingham, AL, (#99) and Philadelphia, PA (#99).
