Which American City Was Just Named the ‘Laziest’?

America's Laziest City

America has been criticized for our obesity crisis most likely because we would rather lounge on the couch instead of getting up and doing something physical. Would you like to know which American cities are lazier than others?

We checked in with  Men’s Health Magazine to answered the question, “Who are the laziest cities in the country?”  If you just don’t have the ambition to look into it any further, we’ll let you know.  The rankings are based on a variety of factors, including data on amount of exercise residents do, how much television people watch, the area’s promotions to get people to work out and money they spend on video games. Seems scientific enough, doesn’t it?

Who’s the laziest? Jackson, Mississippi, the state’s capital. They have the honor of finishing first, or last on the list of activity. If you’re wondering why it took Mississippi so long to abolish slavery, it’s probably not because anyone opposed it. It’s more likely no one in the state’s capital could work up the energy to do the paperwork.

Jackson led the list of Southern cities of the laziest by showing up at the bottom. The other nine cities at the bottom of the most active list are; Little Rock, AR, Corpus Christi, TX, New Orleans, LA, Memphis, TN, Lexington, KY, Birmingham, AL, Columbia, SC, Nashville, TN, and Charleston, WV.

On the other hand, Portland, Oregon was named the most active city, ahead of Boise, Idaho, in a top 10. To see where your city fairs, go to Men’s Health and if you’re city is not where you’d like it to be, get off the couch and do something about it.
