Report: Nashville residents aren't fit

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Nashville may be called the "It" city, but a new study finds it is definitely not the "Fit" city.

Nashville ranks No. 2 on the list of the most sedentary cities in America according to a study by Share Care, a company created in part by Dr. Oz.

It looks at the results from more than a million online surveys.

Only Knoxville ranked higher in the survey.

Researchers said burning less than 500 calories a day through some sort of exercise makes you age faster and reduces your lifespan.

They recommend getting started by walking just 10 minutes a day.
