America's Most Sedentary City IS…

Sedentary city

Lexington, Kentucky!

And remember, that's not a good thing either.

Men's Health Magazine found Lexington as the least active city in the United States after studying data including how often people exercised, the percentage of households that watch more than 15 hours of cable a week, and households that buy more than 11 video games a year.

The fitness publication also took advantage of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's rate of deaths from deep-vein thrombosis — a condition linked to staying in a seated position for a long time — to come to its conclusion.

Indianapolis; Jackson, Mississippi; Charleston, West Virginia; and Oklahoma City made up the rest of America's least sedentary cities.

Seattle, however, was named America's MOST ACTIVE city, which is definitely something to take pride in. We wish we could say the same for these other lazy locales.

C'mon guys! Get up and move!
