Cincinnati in top 25 cities for being the least active

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

According to Men's Health Magazine, Cincinnati is in the top 25 cities in the nation that are the least active. The most sedentary city in America is Lexington, KY.

Men's health magazine looked at where and how often people exercise, the percentage of households that watch more than 15 hours of cable a week and buy more than 11 video games a year, and the rate of deaths from deep-vein thrombosis, a condition linked to a lot of sitting. The magazine claims that because some people define "exercise" loosely, they gave credit for any physical activity in the past month.
