According to a study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as cited by CBS news, only 1/5th of Americans meet recommendations by the CDC for amount of daily exercise. More than half of Americans only met recommendations for aerobic exercise while less than thirty percent met recommendations for muscle-strengthening exercise, but not aerobic exercise. Is this part of the reason obesity is such a problem in the United States?
