[ARCHIVED] Las Cruces Recognized as Fittest City in New Mexico

Health and Fitness

The City of Las Cruces is recognized as the fittest city in New Mexico by Insurify. According to the insurance quotes comparison company, Las Cruces was selected for its excellent track record of supporting health and fitness.

Insurify analyzed communities in each state for the availability and accessibility of outdoor recreation areas, and for the proportion of community members working in jobs that promote health and fitness or that demand significant physical activity like park rangers, fitness club managers or dieticians.

Cities were also reviewed based on the highest proportion of residents living within a ten-minute walk to a park. Gyms and health centers were excluded from the study.
