August 6, 2008

It may be a dry heat, but the weather in Phoenix has garnered the city its fifth title as No. 1 Sweatiest City in Old Spice’s annual top 100 sweatiest cities list. Phoenix burned up the charts again to take the No. 1 spot as America’s Sweatiest City in this annual ranking of the nation’s heaviest sweaters (based on amount of sweat produced per person). To earn the top spot, Phoenix’s average temperature was 95.1° in June, July and August 2007, resulting in the average Phoenix resident producing 26.4 ounces of sweat per hour, enough to fill up more than two cans of soda). The Sweatiest Cities rankings are based on computer simulations of the amount of sweat a person of average height and weight would produce walking around for an hour in the average temperatures during June, July and August of 2007 for each city.

In addition, Old Spice also unveiled its list of Biggest Sweat Producers, taking into consideration the total sweat produced by entire city populations, and New York City topped all cities even though it had an average temperature of just 73.8° during June, July and August 2007. On an average summer day, New Yorkers can produce 1.3 million gallons of sweat per hour—enough to fill the 106-acre Central Park Reservoir in just over a month. New York’s sweat equity was more than double the amount than second-place Los Angeles (608,664 gallons of sweat per hour). Rounding out the top 10 sweat producers were Chicago, Houston, Norfolk, VA, Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Dallas and San Diego. San Francisco was last on the list, coming in at No. 100.
