Daniel Holmes runs six days a week. He says staying active and healthy are priorities.
" The older I get the younger I want to feel and it will take more work to do that," said Holmes.
According to the Centers For Disease Prevention, Daniel is not like everyone in Alabama. A recent study conducted by the CDC, ranks Alabama as one of the laziest states in the country.
People interviewed for this study were asked questions, like whether they participated in physical activities or exercise outside of their regular jobs.
David Holmes says he's not surprised that most people answered no.
" It's more convenient to sit at the computer all day or watch TV, then it is to take an hour or two out of your day for fitness," said Holmes.
Dan Mason who also exercises daily says the report seems to hold true.
" I agree, that's the part of the reason why we're out here today. We don't want to be lumped in that group of couch potatoes, the laziest, or the fattest. We want to live healthy lives," said Mason.
Kim Meeker, with Dothan Leisure Services says his department is doing everything they can to make sure more people are up an out, instead of on the couch.
" Everything we do has the message of fitness. Baseball is outdoors, it's healthy," said Meeker.
Meeker says recent renovations to the walking and bike trails in the city have helped people become more active. The number of people using the trails has doubled.
