Keywords:Physical Activity, Resilience, Coronary Heart Disease, University Students
Physical Activity (PA) is a predictive factor of diseases and health promotion. Resilience (R) is a positive reaction in the face of a catastrophe, threat or stressful situation, and coronary risk (CR) is important in the study of health. This study aimed to analyse and correlate the levels of PA, R and CR in the students of the Physical Education Course of the UEPA. In addition to the field, analytic, comparative and correlational, conducted from March to May 2022 with 60 students, the data were collected through the Baecke PA Level Questionnaire, the R Scale questionnaire and the UFSM RC assessment questionnaire, treated using absolute and relative values, mean and standard deviation, chi-square test, Student t, ANOVA one way and Pearson correlation. The results indicate a higher prevalence of Good Grade of R, Level of Regular PA and Level of Remote CR, higher PA index in women and CR in men, correlation between age and R and negative between PA and CR, which suggests adequate R and CR, but lower PA; men need to improve their PA and decrease CR.
