Today's modern teens generally have a sedentary lifestyle. This is very worrying because the sedentary lifestyle is one of the main factors in the emergence of various non-communicable diseases at an early age, one of which is obesity. The Covid-19 pandemic demands the government to apply Studying From Home to all students which has an impact on the lowering of physical activity carried out by students. This research is an online survey research using google form media which was conducted in the period April 2020 to July 2020, with the sample of this study were active students who took online lectures. The variables of this study were physical activity (MET), body mass index, physical activity classification, and nutritional status. The results of this study are in the form of physical activity. Students generally are sedentary in 168 (85.3%) respondents with an average MET of 432.19 (178.64), an average body mass index of 23.16 (4.96) kg / m2 with nutritional status dominated by normal nutritional status in 76 (38.6%) respondents. The results of statistical tests found that there was no significant relationship between physical activity and body mass index (BMI) (p-value> 0.05). On the other hand, although there is no significant relationship between the 2 variables, this must be a major highlight, because the sedentary lifestyle can still cause other non-communicable diseases such as hypertension and diabetes mellitus.
