One in four Americans didn’t exercise last year

Did you go bowling last year? How about take a Yoga class? A recent survey released by the Physical Activity Council reports that roughly 28 percent of the population didn't participate in any of the 104 physical activities as defined by the council - bowling, table tennis, even lifting a set of barbells all made the list. So what gives? We talk with Wall Street Journal sports columnist Jason Gay for his take on why so many people are staying sedentary. In a recent editorial he asks if technology, expensive youth sports leagues or increased food delivery options played a role. (Flickr/Ed Yourdon)
