Abstract: Becoming senior can succeed in a healthy way or not. With aging, the fragility syndrome (FS) can occur, which represents a biological affect characterized by a decrease in the homeostatic reserve and loss of the body's capacity to resist stressors. It is observed that the practice of physical exerciseseems to have a beneficial relationship with better maintenance or promotion of the quality of life of the elderly. There are current systematic reviews that report the lack of scientific evidence from studies of physical interventions in the reversal of fragility. The objective was to investigate the existence of fragility in the elderly. This is an exploratory, quantitative and cross-sectional field survey. Fried criteria were used to evaluate the fragility. The balance was evaluated by Timed up and go (TUG). The results obtained characterize 53.1% of the sample as fragile, of these 88.3% female. The most prevalent weakness criterion was the reduction of walking activity. There was a direct correlation between the TUG increase and the level of frailty. It demonstrated a profile of risk, as in females, young adults, with comorbidities and TUG reduction universally. FS has a broad spectrum of presentation, being an important determinant of public health, by the national and world increase of the elderly population.
