Ever wonder where the laziest people in the United States are from? Well, look no further after Men's Health magazine released its list of the 100 least and most active U.S. cities. According to the results, the South isn't rising again anytime soon.

The publication's executive editor Matt Marion told Reuters in an email, "The South certainly has a cultural reputation for taking it easy and being laid-back and the region's heat and humidity are also a built-in obstacle to exercise.

Topping the charts of the least active cities in the country were iconic southern destinations such as Lexington, Ky., Indianapolis, Ind, Jackson, Mich., Charleston, W.Va., and Oklahoma City, Okla.

On the other hand, cities that were home to people engaged in an active lifestyle included Salt Lake City, Washington DC, San Francisco, Seattle, and Oakland, Calif.

Men's Health compiled the data for its list using statistical analysis from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, data mapping from Geographic Research, INC. and research from the consumer group GfK MRI, according to Reuters.

Researchers also probed how often and where individuals exercised, how many households spend the majority of their time watching television or playing videogames, number of deaths caused by deep-vein thrombosis, and how many hours citizens of a particular city spent working out in the past month.

In order to ensure you don't fall under banner of America's laziest, Men's Health suggests taking the stairs to ramp up your body's metabolic output. A recent study conducted by the CDC revealed that signs encouraging stairwell use increased traffic by nine percent.
