in our town

a. Young people in our town work out a lot.
b. The young people in our town work out a lot.


Are both sentences correct?
Do they mean the same?

Is 'in our town' in (a) adjectival? Does it modify 'young people' or is the sentence equivalent to 'Young people work out a lot in our town'.

I personally don't like (a), Maybe I just don't use that kind of sentence.

The sentences are mine.

Many thanks

    To me, Second sentence seems grammatically correct.

    Thank you so much DD!

    So the first one it completely incorrect? It would not be used? I don't use that kind of sentence, but I doubt that it wrong.

    Many thanks
