A Survey was conducted recently to determine which counties in the country are the "laziest," or the least physically active, and two counties in Tennessee made the list.
The report, however, does point out that all 50 counties that made the list have limited opportunities, falling below the national average for living in proximity to places for exercise such as parks and recreational facilities.
The two counties that made the list are…
# 19: Lawrence County
# 40: Giles County
Coming in at # 19 with 56.4% of the population having access to places for physical activity, but 41.7% of adults not exercising is Lawrence County.
In Giles County, which ranks # 40 nationally, 40.2% of adults don't exercise and only 43.7% of the population has access to places for physical activity.
