PHOENIX - The city of Tucson, Ariz. is among the top U.S. cities where a lot of physical activity is taking place.

Yahoo! Shine reports that the city of Tucson was ranked the top city for swimming, thanks to a compiled list of data from Facebook.

To track where the fittest people in the United States live, Facebook compiled user data into a list called "Facebook's Fittest Cities" and has shared it exclusively with Yahoo! Shine. Its calculations are based on user activity such as fitness-related status updates, gym check-ins, use of fitness apps, and fitness-related life events added to a person's timeline between January 1, 2013, and March 31, 2013 in cities with at least 200,000 Facebook users.

If swimming is not your thing, here's what other cities are doing: Yoga is pretty big in Austin, Tx., running seems to gather a lot of people in Oklahoma City, Okla., while marathon enthusiasts apparently meet up in San Diego, Calif.
