How much you exercise is based on where you live


By web gangsta | Published:

There isn’t anybody out there who gets enough exercise.  Professional athletes are constantly training in some manner, and they’re supposed to be the absolute best shape of anybody out there. Even Professional Eaters have to train for their sport.

But for the more casual athlete, are you getting the exercise you need?

Maybe the AMOUNT OF EXERCISE YOU GET DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU LIVE?

Everybody jokes that Californians, folks in Denver and Portland are all hyped up about living the clean lifestyle.  Web Watch visited Boise a few times and was amazed at how many people were out riding their bikes to work and using company-provided bike racks.

In some ways, the amount of exercise you get is really based on your outdoor environment.  The prettier it is outside, the more likely you are to go out and experience it.

The TOP 5 STATES FOR EXERCISE are:

  1. Colorado
  2. Oregon
  3. Vermont
  4. Hawaii
  5. California

Keeping the theme of “pretty people, pretty surroundings = more exercise”, the stereotypical answers are also at the bottom of the board for BOTTOM 5 STATES FOR EXERCISE:

  1. West Virginia
  2. Alabama
  3. Louisiana
  4. Mississippi
  5. Tennessee

We’ve been to New Orleans.  That food is too good to want to waste it by exercising it away.  We don’t disagree with Louisiana being at the bottom of this list.
