The learning environment is a place that has an impact on physical activity so that it affects the level of physical fitness and mental health of students. The purpose of this paper is to determine the impact of the learning environment in urban and rural areas on the physical fitness and mental health of students who are grouped by sex (male and female). A total of 160 students aged 15-18 years are involved in this program, consisting of 80 urban learning environments (40 male and 40 female) and 80 rural learning environments (40 male and 40 female). To determine the level of physical fitness of students measured using the Indonesian Physical Fitness Test (TKJI), while for mental health data were obtained using a questionnaire. Based on the analysis that has been done, there are differences in the physical fitness of students based on the learning environment (urban and rural) in general, rural students are better than urban students. Seen from gender, it proves that the level of physical fitness of rural male students is better than urban men and rural women are better than urban women. Meanwhile, mental health proves that urban students are better than rural students. Based on gender, it proves that the mental health of urban male students is better than that of rural students, while the mental health of urban female students is lower than that of rural students.
