Another reason to live or spend more time in Park City….The lifestyle will improve your health.
Data from the Centers for Disease Control’s 2009 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System showed that Summit County, Utah is the most active county in the U.S. We had the highest percentage of residents in all U.S. counties who moderately or vigorously exercise three to five days a week, at 67.3 percent. Amount counties, Summit County has the fewest residents with coronary artery disease, at 1.6 percent.
My personal experience with clients who relocate to Park City is that even if they did not exercise before, the Park City lifestyle encourages them to be more active. They walk their dogs, take up hiking or snowshoeing and become leaner and healthier.
Even kids get into the act. My kids and I ran the “Funky 5k Race” in Park City on Labor Day. I was surprised to see 4 and 5 year old who ran the entire 3 miles. Talk about an early start to a healthy lifestyle!
