TUESDAY, March 6, 2012 —Do you brag that your gym has the best yoga instructors in town? And what about that hole-in-the-wall soup and salad shop you just can’t get enough of? If you think your town has some of the best health-food offerings and fitness facilities around, you might want to start showing the love on FourSquare, a free mobile app that prompts users to ‘check in’ wherever they are to win points and badges and unlock deals.
In honor of March’s National Nutrition Month, FourSquare crunched numbers from its 15 million users to determine which city is home to the healthiest eaters and has the most physically active residents. To be considered for the top 10, each city had to have more than 500,000 total FourSquare check-ins and have a high percentage of check-ins at farmers' markets, fish markets, salad shops, juice bars, gyms, fitness centers, and tracks over the past year.
