    Really don't think that sales of sports equipment = fit. If anything it is more likely to be negatively correlated as it imply a the people in those areas feel they need to get fitter.

    Definitely not the fittest cities, you cannot judge fitness on sales of fitness equipment, it's more a show of wealth of a place to have enough disposable income to buy fitness equipment.

    There literally is not a single obese student here at Southampton.

    Almost every girl got a booty and almost every dude has some biceps on them.

    I think gym membership sales would have been a more accurate way to measure this, which Amazon don't do so they can **** right off.

    How many people buy gym memberships but don't really use them much? I agree it would be more accurate than sports equipment though.

    Cool list. I think that more students are well aware of healthy living around those cities or so.
