Forbes Magazine set out to find America's Most Sedentary City, and guess what? It's US! Good ol' Memphis, Tennessee. Memphis' perfect combination of high obesity, high television-watching rate, urban sprawl, poverty, and relative lack of parkland, landed us the top spot.
It sounds sort of silly, but the article is quite serious, well-researched, and well worth a read.
Do we need more a physical activities? I am not sure, let me hire a consultant (perhaps the one our Mayor used ?) and we'll get back with you with the findings.
