New report says Kentucky is the least active state in the country

Kentucky is home to the most couch potatoes of any state in the country, according to a new report.

The report, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gave Kentuckians a thumbs down for being the nation's least physically active citizens.

Other southern states, like Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Oklahoma, ranked high with Kentucky in the report.

The states getting a thumbs up for being the most physically active are California, Colorado, Minnesota, Oregon, Vermont, and Hawaii.

Researchers also said four of the five least active counties in the country are in Kentucky.
