Aging as degenerative process induces significant changes in the elderly affecting the level of functional independence, quality and lifestyle. Methods: This study was conducted with 102 women physically active and without risk factors. Anthropomet- ric tests, of functional independence and explosive strength were applied. Results: Average age 60.08 ± 5.35 years, body mass index: 26.81 ± 3.91, percentage of fat: 52.45 ± 4.75, percentage of muscle mass: 37.24 ± 6.77, tests of functional indepen- dence: maximum speed (30 meters): 9.39 ± 1.92 s, speed-agility (30 meters): 12.93 ± 1.59 s and dynamic balance (6 meters): 21.97 ± 8.01 s. Explosive Strength (Bosco test): Squat Jump: 12.23 ± 3.05 cm, Countermovement Jump: 13.18 ± 3.04 cm and Counter- movement Jump Arm swing: 14.80 ± 4.01 cm. Conclusion: The statistical relationships found between body composition, explosive strength and functionality tests, are an important diagnostic tool and control that can improve the intervention models with elderly.
