We're Number 1!!!! Memphis Named "America's Most Sedentary City"

Posted By on Mon, Oct 29, 2007 at 4:00 AM

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.
