Abstract Contemporary fitness centers try to attract customers with interesting names of methods improving motor activity. Young women are particularly interested in methods aimed at body mass correction and achieving the desired shapes. Not many of them consider health benefit; most are interested in the final outcome. Numerous fitness methods include those whose efficiency and safety for human health still has no scientific evidence. This research is devoted to assessing the efficiency of impacting the biological age, anthropometric indicators and functional condition of cardiovascular and respiratory system, as well as working capacity of young women having and not having the harmful habit of smoking. To solve the above tasks, theoretical research methods were applied: systemic and logical analysis of medical, psychological and pedagogical literature; generalization of practical pedagogical experience. As women were taking exercise, their individual biological and proper age was measured along with anthropometric indicators and functional indicators of respiratory and cardiovascular system; working capacity was measured with PWC170 test following L. I. Abrosimova’s method; muscular stamina and physical fitness levels were measured by flexibility, strength, etc. development indicators. The conducted research demonstrated that Callanetics was an efficient method of correcting the biological age and anthropometric indicators, while making a beneficial impact on cardio-respiratory system and working capacity; smoking, however, frequently neutralizes the technique’s positive impact.
