Americans Work Hard, But Don't Play Hard Enough

Americans seem to have mastered working hard but they are having a difficult time playing hard enough.

Accoridng to a recent report from the Center of Disease Control (CDC) Americans aren't sweating enough.

Most U.S. adults failed to exercise at the minimum recommended level in 2003, according to a federal government study released on Thursday that suggested America's "couch potatoes" are still in recline.

Only 45.9 percent of those aged 18 and over met the U.S. government's recommendation of at least 30 minutes of brisk walking or other moderate exercise five days a week or at least 20 minutes of vigorous exercise three days a week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in the report.
