Abstract: The physical fitness and exercise of the old people in Xiangxi Minority areas is investigated by means of purposive sampling,literature review,interview,questionnaire,induction method and deduction method.It is found that although the old people have clear motivation to participate in physical exercise,they seldom receive necessary guidance and walking has become their favorite form of exercise.Because of the underdeveloped local economy and the low sports consumption level,many old people will choose the open grounds of the residential districts as their exercise place,while they are not willing to spend money on physical exercise.In Xiangxi minority areas,the old people seldom participate in the traditional sports activities,and the participation time and exercise place are far from the sports population standards.Xiangxi is in great need of instructors of social sports and the policy and economic support from the government.

Key words: Xiangxi minority areas, ole people, physical fitness and exercise, influential factors
