The Yogasana, Pilates and calisthenics training has selected as the independent variable. Total cholesterol and body weight have chosen as dependent variables, and all dependent variables measured by standardized test items as blood test and digital weighing machine. Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was applied to find out the significant mean differences. In all the cases, the 0.05 level of significance has fixed to test the Alpha level. The results of the study exposed that the experimental groups had finished a significant difference in all the selected variables such as total cholesterol and body weight to compare the control group.
