Pittsburgh region has 3 of the most fit univs.

Recommended Posts

Three of the top ten "fittest" Unversities are within less then 3 hours from downtown Pittsburgh! Combine this with the recent developments of the best city to fitness bike in, the nearing completion of the D.C. to Pittsburgh bike trail and one of the top five rowing events in the nation and Pittsburgh might be turning some heads in the fitness field. :thumbsup:

(to be fair though both universities are "state" run so a big thanks to Harrisburg and Philly for providing us the opportunity to take it to the next level!)

"[Region] boasts some pretty fit campuses

Tuesday, March 15, 2005


Two Pennsylvania universities, University of Pittsburgh and Penn State, ranked among the top 10 schools in the nation in a Muscle & Fitness survey of the fittest colleges. Penn State was sixth and Pitt 10th.

The public insitutions were compared by their recreation facilities, number of sports clubs, intramural sport opportunities, and fitness classes offered.

The magazine noted that Penn State offers more than 50 club sports, four strength and conditioning facilities and a Fitness Loft, with more than 40 cardio machines.

The magazine also noted Pitt's four residence-hall gyms, plus 14 other facilities and eight weight rooms.

The top school on the list was Ohio State University."
