Introduction: the involvement of Actividad Fisica Dirigida (Directed Physical Activity), AFD, in the municipalities of Cundinamarca, deserve an effective and cost-effective evaluation which will in turn contribute to the programs of Actividad Fisica (Physical Activity) , AF and to the development of a dynamic process of evaluation of this type in Colombia. Methods: a retrospective evaluation of n= 214 was done, with the participation of the AFD, and measurements were taken with cardio-anthropometric indicators during 18 months. Inquiries were made about the direct costs of AFD and the health service for ECNT. Results: the findings revealed an effect of physical activity over anthropometry and clinical indicators such as blood pressure, achieving a lower risk. Conclussion: AFDs involvement is effective in the reduction of risk factors for ECNT, and cost effective to lower the costs in health care up to 80%.
