Abstract Children and adolescents are less active during leisure time and Physical Education classes than in the past. Previous studies have indicated association between behavioral and socioeconomic factors with adolescent’s Moderate and Vigorous physical activity(MVPA). The aim of this study was to analyze the moderating effect of the parents' leisure time physical activity level(PAL) with demographic and behavioral factors during adolescent's School Physical Education classes (PE). The evaluation of PAL of adolescents were made by accelerometers and parent’s PAL were assessed by questionnaire. A total of 92 PE participated in this research. The Wald test showed difference between most active during the class with the parent’s PAL (p-value<0.001). SPSS program, version 25.0 was used in all analyzes. Our results showed an average MVPA during a PE of 4.8(±0.69) minutes (8% of the PE). The lower active girls showed two time more chance to present low levels of physical activity during PE (OR 2.04, 95% CI 1.16-3.58), even when adjusted age and sleep time. In the more active parents, older adolescents with passive school transport and adolescents with lower sleeping time presented high odds of low MVPA during PE (respectively, 11 times (95% CI 1.06-112, 06), 22 times (95% CI 1.96-2.50.20) and 58 times (95% CI 2.98-1139.73)). We concluded that the parents’ PAL modulated as extrinsic factors the adolescent's PAL during PE.
