The study to assess the overall health status of the Chinese Culture University faculty and staff using health detection and markers of metabolic syndrome, and to investigate the case of the physical activity in daily life. Method: Subjects were 68 faculty members and staffs of Chinese Culture University (20 male and 48 female) (average age: 43.4 ± 10.84 yr, height: 163.3 ± 7.50 cm, weight: 65.5 ± 11.95 kg). All subjects were complete detect of physiological (Body mass index, waist circumference, hip circumference, waist-hip ratio, systolic and diastolic blood pressure), blood biochemistry (Fasting glucose, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides) and physical activity score scale within a week. Data were analyzed the differences of gender by using the percentage of chi-square test. Results: Waist circumference was high proportion of abnormal (male: 50%; female: 56.3%), but the male's body mass index (male: 40%; female: 17%), systolic (male: 70%; female: 31%) and diastolic blood pressure (male: 60%; female: 25%) of obesity or abnormal significantly higher than the females, as well as the female's waist-hip ratio significantly higher than male (male: 10%; female: 33%). The male's blood glucose and triglycerides abnormal situation was more than 2 times the female, but did not reach a significant difference. Conclusion: Male should pay more attention to problems of blood pressure, and female should pay more attention to problem of the waist-hip ratio anomalies associated with abdominal obesity, as well as brought the worries of recessive obesity from the low muscle mass (normal BMI, and high body fat). The faculty and staff mostly presented overweight or obese in both of sex, and the level of physical activity of more than half of the people also showed ”very poor'', display severe deficiencies of physical activity in daily life. It is recommended that it should be long-term assessment and monitoring obesity and abnormal phenomenon of metabolic syndrome, and provide approach of health promotion, in order to enhance the healthy insight and maintain their own health in the faculty and staff.
