Staying Fit & Healthy
In this section…
Boulder’s beautiful setting, outdoor recreational amenities and emphasis on active, healthy living combine to rank it consistently among the healthiest places in the United States. It’s no secret that Boulder residents and visitors are dedicated to staying fit and healthy. Attribute it to our nearly 300 days of sunshine, exceptionally mild climate, or the Rocky Mountains in our back yard.
Our quality of life translates into a healthy and productive workforce that experiences less absenteeism and places fewer demands on the healthcare system. Colorado has the nation’s lowest rate of obesity and is among the five lowest states for deaths caused by heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
