Date:5/26/2009

promotions partners, community programs, allied associations and other organizations, each community will be able to tap into best practices and existing resources to address its unique makeup of opportunities and challenges. The ultimate result will be an improvement in community fitness and a reduction in the rates of obesity and other chronic diseases.

Sixteen large metropolitan areas were included in the pilot phase of the program in 2008. This year, ACSM expanded the AFI program to measure and rank the 50 largest metropolitan cities in the United States. Visit the online newsroom at www.AmericanFitnessIndex.org for a complete list of the MSAs included, counties represented and data. Follow the AFI program on Twitter - @ACSM_AFI.
