This Study is intended to study the relationship of physical activity and body fat percentage with some cardiovascular risk factors in faculty members of Sabzevar Teacher Training University in Sabzevar, Iran. For the purposes of the study, 50 male faculty members , with the age of 37 ± 5.7 years, height of 169 ± 6.9 cm and weight of 76 ± 13 Kg were non-randomly selected; they were 50% of the whole population. Cardiovascular risk factors studied included systolic and diastolic blood pressure, plasma glucose, cholesterole, TG, HDL-C, LDL-C, VLDL and HDL-C/cholestrole ratio. Data analysis using Pearson and Spearman correlation coefficients revealed significant relationships between body fat percentage and plasma cholestrole, TG, VLDL, HDL-C/cholestrole ratio, BMI and physical activity. However, no significant correlation was observed with plasma glucose, HDL-C, and LDL-C, physical activity showed a significant relationship only with body fat percentage and no such relationship with other cardiovascular risk factors. In general, it is concluded that in the subjects of our study, body fat percentage correlates with cardiovascular risk factors more than physical activity does.
