Its increasing prevalent will increase the direct cost of curing effort and losses of patient productivity. There are two controllable factors related to bone mineral density life style and food. The uncontrollable are genetics, sex, and age. This research is to reveal the relation of physical activities. nutrition status and nutrition intake with BMD of aerobic calisthenics. This research was done on 2016 in observational base with cross sectional design. All fifty one subjects were chosen according to inclusion criteria. Collected data including name, age, education, occupations, the duration of aerobic exercise, physical activities, BMI, percentage of body fat, nutrition intake (protein, C and D vitamins) and BMD. Hypothesis was tested statically by Pearson correlation, Spearman ranks, and a double linier regression analysis. Result shows a significant relation between physical activities, percentage of body fat, protein and calcium sufficiency with bone mineral density. The most significant factors are physical activities and calcium sufficiency. The ongoing exercise intensity of once a week should be increased to three or four times. Calcium intake should be increased to prevent osteoporosis.
