Laziest and Active Cities in the US

Postby olywaguy » Thu Jun 30, 2011 4:10 pm

Apparently, Men's Health has published a list of the Laziest and Active cities in the U.S.

The health and fitness magazine took quite a few factors into account when determining America’s Most Sedentary City—data on where and how often people exercise, the percentage of households that watch more than 15 hours of cable a week and buy more than 11 video games a year and the rate of deaths from deep-vein thrombosis (a condition that has been linked to extended periods of sitting).

Credit was also given for participation in physical activity as documented by the CDC in the past month.

Top 10 Least Active Cities

1. Lexington, KY
2. Indianapolis, IN
3. Jackson, MS
4. Charleston, WV
5. Oklahoma City, OK
6. Tulsa, OK
7. Little Rock, AR
8. Nashville, TN
9. Laredo, TX
10. Birmingham, AL

Top 10 Most Active Cities

1. Seattle, WA (All right Washington!!)
2. San Francisco, CA
3. Oakland, CA
4. Washington, DC
5. Salt Lake City, UT
6. Reno, NV
7. Portland, ME
8. Atlanta, GA
9. Denver, CO
10. Minneapolis, MN

Washington, DC. the 4th most active city in the US? I suppose so given all the jumping through hoops, poll vaulting over mouse turds, back-stabbing, grand-standing and one-upmanship that goes on... Oh yeah, I forgot ~ the media's race for "The Scoop or Sleeze" - always a great spectator sport...
