Named the best U.S.cities for men and women

U.S. magazines Men’s Health and Women’s Health ranked the most attractive cities in the U.S. for men and women. As reported by USA Today, the “male” category of the best city to live was found in Madison, Wisconsin, and in “female” – Plano Texas. chosen primarily based on health and wellness factors.

The magazines evaluated 100 U.S. cities for health, fitness and quality-of-life criteria in more than 30 categories, ranging from mortality rates to vegetable and fruit consumption, obesity and smoking rates.

Madison won out in part because of its high proportion of doctors, and Plano, with its 139 single guys per every 100 unattached women, helped earn the best for women title.

“Madison has kind of ruled our men’s best lists for a long time,” saysMen’s Health editor Dave Zinczenko, who grew up outside Philadelphia, which was ranked second-to-last for men and rock-bottom for women.

Some folks agree with the results, others don’t.

Megan Deatherage, 35, who works at Plano’s Liberty Recreation Center, says, “There are cute little night spots and eating places and, of course, I love the recreation and park activities.”

But Ryan Norton, 28, a second-year medical student at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, takes umbrage with his city’s subpar ranking.

“A lot of people here are really passionate about their sports, and about the history and the different traditions that Philadelphia has to offer,” says Norton, who is active in the thriving running community there.

Zinczenko says he doesn’t usually get a lot of reader backlash about the rankings. “It doesn’t mean there’s not a lot to love about the worst cities.” He says they just might consider boosting their health and fitness profiles.

  1. If Plano is good, the rest of the country must be in BAD shape! You’d never know that there were 139 men for every 100 women. Woman in Plano are always asking- where are the men? Maybe the demographers did not adjust the figure to exclude gay men or men who are still living with their mothers.
