Objectives Older age and its associated biopsychological disorders exert socioeconomic costs. Therefore, the importance of preventing and treating these situations is important for researchers and authorities. Therefore, the present study investigated the effects of omega-3 supplementation and functional exercises on the psychomotor performance of aged women. 
Methods & Materials This was a semi-experimental study with a Pre-test-Post-test design. In total, 47 aged women were recruited based on convenience sampling method from the Sports and Health Consultation Center of Qazvin Sports and Youth Department. The subjects were randomly divided into functional exercises, omega-3 supplement, exercise+supplement, and placebo groups. The functional exercise protocol consisted of 8 weeks; 3 sessions per week (each session lasted 50 min). Food analysis was performed to control the possible effect of nutrition on the obtained results. Psychomotor performance was measured using the Vienna universal system. The obtained data were analyzed using multivariate analysis of covariance. 
Results The attained results suggested that exercise and omega-3 could improve all psychomotor performance test scores (P≤0.05). Furthermore, functional exercises and supplement group demonstrated a significant improvement in the tests after the intervention, compared to the control group (P≤0.05).
Conclusion The exercise and omega-3 program could improve psychomotor performance, leading to improved quality of life. Consuming omega-3 and functional exercises are highly recommended for improving the psychomotor performance of aged women.
