Abstract: Introduction: This study aimed to analyze the relationship between the practice of physical activity and the functionality of older people in primary health care, mediated by behavior. Material and methods: A cross-sectional study carried out with 654 older people from primary health care in Maringa, Brazil. The International Physical Activity Questionnaire and the World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule 2.0 were used. Data analysis was conducted through Structural Equation Modeling (p < .05). Results: The direct effect of sedentary behavior on functionality was weak and significant (beta = .10; p < .05). Vigorous activity had a significant (p < .05) and weak (beta = -.11) direct effect on sedentary behavior. When mediated by sedentary behavior, the relationship between vigorous activity and functionality showed a weak reduction in the total effect (-.10 to -.09), with an indirect effect of beta = .01. Conclusions: Sedentary behavior acts to reduce, weakly, the effect of vigorous activity on the functionality of older people
