New study says Hoosiers don't exercise much


A new study says that Hoosiers are not exercising enough.  A survey conducted by Gallup ranks all states on the percentage of people that exercise at least 3 times per week.  According to that criteria, Indiana is the 9th worst state for exercise. 

Fitness experts say it's tough to pinpoint a reason, but the weather may be a factor.  With Spring getting closer they say it's a good time for folks to get active.

"Now that Spring is coming around, there's things you can do outside like hiking clubs or walking groups," says Sarah Strefling a fitness manager at Memorial.

Vermont ranked number one with over 65 percent of people exercising at least 3 times per week.
