Albuquerque just might be whipping itself into shape this summer, at least according to those sharing their fitness success in the social media world.

According to a new report, Albuquerque is the number ten fittest city in the U.S. The study looked at the number of Facebook check-ins at gyms, fitness mentions on social media and use of fitness apps.

The group behind the study says Albuquerque's "warmer temperatures, looser schedules and longer hours of sunlight" make it one of the best places in the country to workout.

Other cities in the top ten include: Virginia Beach, Va.; Colorado Springs, Colo.; Austin, Texas; San Antonio, Texas; Livingston, N.J.; Portland, Ore.; El Paso, Texas; Oklahoma City, Okla.; and Tacoma, Wash.
