The Fittest Colleges in America

Being fitness-minded with state-of-the-art workout facilities isn’t just for student-athletes anymore.  Colleges are putting serious time and money into the physical health of all coeds.

Every year The Active Times rates the Top 10 Fittest Colleges in America.  While it’s no surprise that many of our military schools top the list, (which is something I think we can all be pretty proud of!), this year’s compilation includes schools across the country.   We learned a lot from this year’s Top 10 – check out the slideshow, complete with top fitness qualifications and highlights from each school,  here.
