The South's weight will rise again

The Mountain states (MT, ID, WY, CO, NM, AZ, UT, NV) are the fittest in the country according to a recent poll. The south is the least fit.
The mountain west totaled highest for six fitness activities surveyed in the latest NSGA reports. With a totaled index of 669, the Mountain states outranked the Pacific states and New England, both with indices of 624.The six fitness activities included in this analysis were aerobic exercising, exercising with equipment, exercise walking, running/jogging, weightlifting and workout at club.

At the other end of the scale, the West South Central states (AR, LA, OK, TX) and the East South Central states (KY, TN, AL, MS) (home to the pictured Rev. Jerry Falwell) had the lowest totaled indices -- 539 and 540 respectively.

Isn't Jerry Falwell from Virginia?

I can leg press 2000 pounds so it isn't my fault.
