Study says 56% of Mexican adults don't get exercise

MEXICO CITY--More than half of Mexican adults don't get regular exercise, a worrisome figure in a country with high rates of obesity and diabetes, a study published Wednesday found.

The National Statistics Institute said only 43.6 percent of Mexicans exercise or practice sports regularly, compared to 51.4 percent in the United States and 54 percent in Canada. The main reasons given for not exercising are a lack of time and exhaustion after work.

The study said that almost two-thirds of the Mexicans who don't exercise are women and that less educated Mexicans are less likely to exercise.
