Fargo was ranked the seventh-best city for women in the January/February issue of Women's Health magazine, which hit newsstands Tuesday.

The magazine looked at 100 of the largest cities in the United States and based its rankings on 38 factors such as cancer rates, air quality and the number of gym memberships. Fargo ranked first in length of life and was the 27th healthiest and 58th fittest city.

Salt Lake City, Utah, topped the overall list. This is the first year that Women's Health has compiled the ranking.

Men's Health magazine ranked cities for the opposite sex. Fargo ranked 14th overall on the men's list - down from sixth - and was second for quality of life. Madison, Wis., took the top spot on the men's overall list.
