Last month, we highlighted Estately data that showed Colorado has the second-fewest couch potatoes of any state in the country, trailing only Hawaii.

But according to the folks at Find the Best.com, there are still quite a few Coloradans who aren't working up a sweat during their leisure time — and they're mostly found in rural locations.

The rankings are based on a survey that asked the following question: “During the past month, other than your regular job, did you participate in any physical activities or exercises such as running, calisthenics, golf, gardening, or walking for exercise?”

Of course, jobs on ranches and farms are often so physically taxing that by the end of the day, lots of folks are too exhausted to hit the links or do yoga — and that may call the results into question.
