Keywords: aerobic gymnastics

The main reason for choosing this theme is first of all the desire to demolish the antiquated idea saying that it is normal for old age to be hard, filled with illnesses, and frustration brought by loneliness, or by the lack of social activity. The intention of this paper is to prove that movement must be made, mainly, with a prophylactic purpose, for prolonging youth, secondly, to improve certain conditions, and last but not least, for the fact that going to a gym can be a way to socialize and integrate in a group, a very important aspect for elderly people. The aim of this research was to identify the role of the aerobic gymnastics means in stimulating the health indicators in elderly people. The operational methods suggested to optimize the lesson comprised structures of exercises for the specific action over all of the segments of the body and muscle groups. The data we obtained shows that gymnastics is a very effective mean, if well organized, to become not only an argument for exercising, but also a real "medicine" for a healthy lifestyle. The results of the research confirm the initial hypothesis, constituting arguments for the use of these structures in the aerobic gymnastics lessons with elderly people.
