Which State’s Residents Spend the Most Time Sitting On the Couch?
A new report broke down every state in the U.S. with one main question: How many people there are willing to get off the couch and exercise for a few hours a week?
And the results are just about what you'd expect.
TENNESSEE finished in last place on the list. Only 51.8% of adults there do any sort of moderately-intense activity for at least two hours a week.
They just beat out Louisiana, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Alabama.
On the other end, VERMONT has the most active residents . . . 73.3% of the people there exercise for at least a few hours a week.
They just beat out Alaska, Montana, Utah, and Maine.
Overall, nationwide, 64.5% of people do at least a few hours of moderate physical activity every week.
And 25.4% of us do absolutely NO physical activity every week.
