States in the Best Shape in America

Data was compiled into these two main categories to determine the states in the best shape:

  • health status, and
  • lifestyle indicators

These categories were then further broken down to include obesity, diabetes, heart disease, wellness check-ups, exercise, and local fitness infrastructure. By analyzing metrics from all of the above, Runreviews was able to determine which U.S. states were in the best shape.

The top five states in America in the best shape are as follows:

  1. District of Columbia
  2. Massachusetts
  3. Colorado
  4. Connecticut
  5. New Hampshire

The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
