The Baltimore, Towson, Columbia area has been a little less healthy this year.

The 2017 American Fitness Index ranks the Baltimore area at number 20. In 2016, our area was at number 18.

The report is based on personal health indicators and community factors, including parks and recreational centers.

For the first time in three years Washington D.C. fell from the number one spot. It fell to number two behind Minneapolis.
