Lazytown? Men's mag says Columbia among laziest cities

Posted: Updated:

Columbia, South Carolina, where police routinely shut down roads on weekends for 5Ks or marathons, is one of the laziest towns in America, according to Men's Health magazine.

The list, released on Wednesday, says Columbia is in the top 5 of laziest cities in the country. Luckily, Lexington, Kentucky takes the hefty crown as the number one laziest city.

Men's Health used certain indicators like exercise amounts, television viewing, local habits and culture to come up with the rankings.

Also of note is the fact that all five cities in the top five are Southern cities. Charleston, West Virginia, Nashville, Tennessee, and Birmingham, Alabama, all round out the top five.

As for the most active cities, Portland, Oregon was named the most active with Boise, Idaho, Salt Lake City, and Minneapolis following close behind.
