Physical activity is strongly related to the development and mainte nance of l body composition. The aim of this study was to analyze the association between physical activity and anthropometric vari ables of workers of a university in Colombia. 84 men (38.1 ± 10 years and 79.2 ± 11 kg) and 119 women (35.5 ± 9.5 years and 61.6 ± 10,6kg) participated of the study. The level of physical activity was assessed using the criteria of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire. They were taken measures of weight, height, BMI, body fat percentage and lean mass. There were significant differ ences between low and high levels of physical activity in weight (p=0.021), between médium and high with low level for fat percent age (<0.001) and lean mass (<0.001) association was found between physical activity with BMI (p = 0.002). It is concluded that workers with low levels of physical activity have a higher percentage of fat and less lean mass.
