Background & Aims: Asthma is a common respiratory disorder that reduces the quality of life in patients. Furthermore, due to importance of preventing and treating diseases through non-pharmacological interventions, the purpose of this research was to investigate the effect of aerobic and resistance training on physical fitness, body composition, and pulmonary function in women with asthma. Materials & Methods: A total of 29 asthmatic women in Urmia participated in the study voluntarily with Convenience Sampling. They were randomly assigned into control group (n= 9, age= 29± 4.03 years, BMI= 23.52±2.34 kg/m2), aerobic exercise group (n= 10, age= 27.25 ± 3.10 years, BMI= 23.47 ± 3.16 kg/m2) and resistance exercise group (n= 10, age= 26.11 ± 4.83 years, BMI= 25.12 ± 2.90 kg/m2). Experimental groups exercised during 3 sessions for 8 weeks. Exercise sessions consisted of 10 minutes for warm-up, 30-40 minutes for aerobic or resistance exercises and 5-10 minutes for cool-down. Body composition and pulmonary functions were measured by caliper and spirometer and clinical signs were evaluated using Santanello’s questionnaire. Statistical analysis was conducted using independent t-test, dependent t-test, and one-way ANOVA by setting pretest as an intervening factor through SPSS-23  (p
