(KSL News) Salt Lake City has some of the fittest kids in America. That's according to Men's Health magazine's FitSchools Initiative program.

The program compiled data from across the country in order to rank the nation's "fittest" and "fattest" cities, and ranks Salt Lake fifth in the country on its list of the cities with the fittest kids.

Seattle, Wash. ranks first and is the only city that scored an A+ grade. Salt Lake got an A-.

New York, Cincinnati, and Durham, N.C. also made the top five.

At the bottom of the list, Cheyenne, Wyo. is deemed the "fattest" city for kids. It's one of eight major U.S. cities the magazine gave failing grades.
