People in Cool Dry Climates Exercise More

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

Whenever I think of Los Angeles, I think of beautiful, thin people rollerblading by the beach. The idea of being able to go outdoors to exercise whenever I want sounds appealing to me. That’s why I’m floored by the finding that people in states such as mine exercise more than those in tropical climates.

Ironically, Utah made the top five along with Montana, Wisconsin, New Hampshire and Vermont. The least active states: Hawaii, Puerto Rico, North Carolina, Kentucky and Mississippi are all tropical climates. Of course, California didn’t make that list. Probably because of all those bikini-clad rollerbladers on the boardwalk.
