Abstract BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the morphological and functional standards and quality of life of people living with HIV/AIDS. METHODS: This was a quasi-experimental study with 15 people living with HIV/AIDS between 35 and 51 years old. The intervention consisted in a program of resisted exercises. The following parameters were evaluated: BMI, WHR, \% G, and scapular and hand strength and the Quality of Life (QoL) was evaluated using the WHOQOL HIV BREFS. RESULTS: Significant changes were observed in the \%G (17.01±2.66 x 15.12±2.25, P=0.031), scapular force (26.16±2.73 x 29.00±2.76, P=0.007), and hand strength (35.45±9.69 x 37.88±10.84, P=0.039). Significant changes were observed in the following areas in the QL domains: environment (12.90±0.52 x 14.10±0.22, P=0.021), spirituality, religion and personal beliefs (15.60±0.88 x 17.06±0.60, P=0.032), and perception of quality of life and overall health (15.33±0.46 x 17.20±0.47, P=0.005). CONCLUSIONS: The results indicate an improvement in body composition, increasing functional capacity, and improving QL through resisted exercise program.
