Exercise Benefits

Dec 1, 2012

I'm doing an Exercise Physiology project in college. Our group decided to do research on whether or not exercising helps, any or at all, with people who have HIV/AIDS. Is there any positive or negative benefits for people to exercise while having HIV/AIDS?

Response from Mr. Vergel

It is probably more important for us to exercise than most healthy people. We have early bone loss, lipid, insulin resistance and other issues that exercise can effectively help us manage.

Good luck with your paper. I am glad that you are interested in this filed. I have always wanted to create a website with a data base of HIV savvy exercise trainers and even a certification program that focuses on HIV related metabolic and morphological issues. Anyone in your department willing to take on this mission?
