Abstract: This Community Service Program activity aims to determine the general public's understanding of an appropriate sport, provide information about the right time to work out in the sun to the general public, give information about the right dose for exercising during the Covid-19 pandemic, and provide advantages and benefits of working out in the sun by following the educational video guidance from FIK UNY. The main target audience for this activity is the campus community, consisting of lecturers and staff and students totaling more than 1000 people, and the wider community because the online PPM model is not limited by space and region. This PPM implementation activity was carried out using an online method, by providing material in the form of an educational video of sports guidance which is then shared to one group to another group, person to person, and colleagues to colleagues. The implementation monitoring and information collection of users' satisfaction were carried out by means of google forms and direct/online interviews. The results indicated that around 98% of respondents liked educational videos and most of them did strength training more often. On average, the respondents did exercise 2-3 times a week, for 15-30 minutes a day, especially in the morning at 08.00-10.00 in front of their house. They felt the benefits of working out in the sun both physically, psychologically, and felt an increase in their immunity after doing the exercise.
