This study aimed to assess the long-term relationship between the intensity of leisure time physical activity (LTPA) and the risk of developing metabolic syndrome (MS) in a prospective cohort study. Methods: The Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra (SUN) Project comprises Spanish university graduates. Participants (n = 10,145) initially free of MS were followed for a minimum of 6 years (2008-2014). Analysis was conducted in 2015. Physical activity was assessed though a validated questionnaire. The intensity of each physical activity was measured in METs. The intensity of LTPA was estimated by the ratio between total METs/week and total hours of LTPA/week, obtaining the mean METs/hour of LTPA. MS was defined according to the harmonizing definition. The association between the intensity of LTPA (METs/hour) and MS was assessed with logistic regression models adjusting for potential confounders. Results: Among 10,145 participants initially free of any MS criteria, 412 new MS cases were observed. Vigorous LTPA was associated with a 37% relatively lower risk (AOR = 0.63, 95% CI = 0.44, 0.89) compared with light LTPA. For a given total energy expenditure, independent of the time spent on it, participants who performed vigorous LTPA exhibited a higher reduction in the risk of MS than those who performed light to moderate LTPA. Conclusions: Vigorous LTPA was significantly associated with lower risk of developing MS after a 6-year follow-up period.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/37144||ISSN:||0749-3797||DOI:||10.1016/j.amepre.2016.11.021||Source:||American Journal of Preventive Medicine [ISSN 0749-3797], v. 52 (4), p. e95-e101|
