San Jose baby boomers the fittest in the nation

October 3, 2013

Apparently our baby boomer friends to the north are the fittest in the nation.

According to a study produced in conjunction with the American Physical Therapists Association and the Huffington Post, San Jose is currently the fittest city for baby boomers in the country. That includes having the highest life expectancy and the fewest “unrestful” days per month among the biggest U.S. cities.

The study was compiled using interviews with boomers –people born between 1946 and 1964 — in the 50 biggest cities in the country.

Nearly 96 percent of San Jose boomers said they were “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with their lives.

From NBC:

The percentage of boomers in San Jose with health insurance was high, at 91.8 percent, and they scored lower than the average of the 50 cities in cases of hypertension and cardiac disease and high cholesterol, according to the survey.

Other cities in the top ten list, in declining order, were Minneapolis, San Francisco, Denver, Boston, Salt Lake City, Washington, D.C., Seattle, San Diego and Raleigh, N.C.
