Metabolic syndrome consists of a set of symptoms including increased waist circumference, increased blood triglyceride levels, decreased levels of highdensity lipoprotein (HDL)-blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, and glucose intolerance. Risk factors for metabolic syndrome include lifestyle (diet, alcohol consumption, smoking, physical activity), socioeconomic and genetics, as well as stress. This research is to determine the determinants of the incidence of metabolic syndrome in Semarang Health Polytechnic students during the Covid19 pandemic. The independent variable is physical activity, and the dependent variable is a metabolic syndrome which includes: waist circumference, BMI, blood glucose levels and blood HDL. The research sample was 31 students. The results indicate that students of Semarang Health Polytechnic are 70.97% in light activity; 77.45% with average waist circumference; 87.10% with normal BMI, 74.19% in normal blood glucose and 35.48% with normal blood HDL during the covid19 pandemic. However, there is no relationship between physical activity carried out by Semarang Health Polytechnic students and changes in waist circumference, BMI, blood glucose and blood HDL during the covid19 pandemic.
