Official List of LAZIEST States in America, Where Does Yours Rank?

It really doesn’t take much to stay physically active these days, and you don’t have to go to the gym every other day to stay fit, either.
A 10-minute bike ride after work every day would be more than sufficient to do the trick.
But with busy lifestyles, families, and work, more and more Americans seem to be having trouble finding the time and energy to exercise properly.
We hear practically non-stop from the loony left how the greatest threat facing humanity is climate change.
These nuts couldn’t be more wrong, and I’m not just talking about the science.

No, the biggest threat to humanity isn’t global warming, it’s laziness. Both economically and physically speaking.
For example, obesity isn’t some disease killing people like the modern day bubonic plague. It’s an issue of self-control and a lack of physical exercise. The main cause of obesity is laziness.
A recent study was conducted to find out what the laziest states in the country were, and a top 10 list of the worst offenders was put together. …

From The Blaze:
FindTheBest and the data site HealthGrove took a look at exercise statistics collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and discovered that one in four people in the U.S. have not exercised outside of work in the last month.
In 2012, adults 20 years and older were asked the following question in a survey: “During the past month, other than your regular job, did you participate in any physical activities or exercises such as running, calisthenics, golf, gardening or walking for exercise?”

Here’s a map of the U.S. that shows a county breakdown with dark blue representing a low number of physically inactive people and dark orange representing high number of physically inactive people:
Here’s the official Top Ten list:
10. North Dakota: 24.8 percent of people are physically inactive
9. Indiana: 27.2 percent of people are physically inactive
8. Kentucky: 27.8 percent of people are physically inactive
7. Alabama: 28.4 percent of people are physically inactive
6. Louisiana: 29.3 percent of people are physically inactive

5. Oklahoma: 29.8 percent of people are physically inactive
4. West Virginia: 30.5 percent of people are physically inactive
3. Arkansas: 30.6 percent of people are physically inactive
2. Tennessee: 31.3 percent of people are physically inactive
