It is widely known that physical activity can improve quality of life and health. In addition, regular physical activity is also associated with the improvement of fitness and immunity. This community service activity aims to educate the community of Dusun Wangun about the importance of physical activity during the COVID-19 pandemic to increase immunity, maintain fitness, and introduce some sports that are not popular yet in remote areas villages. The method used in this community service activity is the Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) method. These community services results showed that the entire series of activities is carried out very well; this can be seen from the community’s enthusiasm during educational activities, socialization of new sports, and practical implementation. Additionally, in order to support the sustainability of the program to increase immunity, fitness, and public health in the wangun village, the society of Wangun is committed to implementing a physical activity program, which is carried out twice a week in the afternoon for 60-90 minutes coordinated by village apparatus and youth organizations (Karang Taruna).
