Objective: The aim of this study was to identify the degree of compliance to the global recommendations on physical activity and its association with cardiovascular risk, anthropometric and socio-demographic variables in teenagers from the district of Punta Arenas, Chile. Subjects and Methods: A random, stratified and proportional sample was obtained of322 students from private, private-subsidized and public local schools. Global physical activity questionnaire (GPAQv2), and anthropometric measurements of weight, height, waist circumference, and classification of nutritional status were applied according to the standards of the Chilean Ministry of Health. Results: 50.31% of the sample showed a normal nutritional status, 48.14% presented overweight status. We also found 666.8 min/day of average sedentary lifestyle between the means by gender. The female gender presents an OR: 1.9; 95% IC: 1.16 to 3.11 according to WHO recommendations. Discussion: It was found that most of the students resulted in the category "sufficiently active" as WHO recommended. An 82.30% showed no high cardiovascular risk. Conclusion: The level of physical activity would not be influenced by nutritional status, showing that the majority of students perform moderate physical activity on their free time.
