The purpose of this research was to identify the role played by aerobic gymnastics means in stimulating the psycho-motor skills markers in middle age people. The research hypothesis was elaborated, stating that presumably, the application of fitness-type aerobic gymnastics programs, rationalized and selected for middle age people, can stimulate their psycho-motor and functional markers, influencing their life expectancy. In order to verify the hypothesis, an experiment was conducted at the Know Limits Studio fitness club in Bacau, on a target group of 8 female middle age subjects (60-65 years old) who practiced aerobics at this gym. The research methods used for this paper were: the study of the bibliographical material, the observation, the experiment, the tests, the statistical-mathematical method and the graphical representation method. Practicing aerobic gymnastics based on a certain rigorously elaborated schedule, which included "cardio", and aerobic steps, lead to the development of motor skills to superior levels.
