The purpose of this study was to identify the effects of aerobic exercise and yoga on body composition and lipid metabolism in abdominal obese women. Using one-group pretest-posttest design, a convenience sample of 23 women who had abdominal obesity (greater than 32 inches of waist circumference) was recruited in a local area of P city and participated in 1 hour of aerobic exercise and yoga program twice a week for 12 weeks. Body composition was measured by body mass index, body fat ratio, waist and hip circumference, and waist-hip ratio; and lipid metabolism was measured with blood pressure, total cholesterol and triglycerides. At pretest, mean age of the subjects was 48.7(SD=9.5) and body fat ratio was 33%, and waist-hip ratio was .85. By paired t-tests, waist circumference and waist-hip ratio were significantly decreased before and after the program but body mass index, blood pressure, and the level of lipid metabolism did not change. Further study findings and implication will be discussed.
