Abstract Exercise/physical activity is increasingly being advocated as a positive addition to the treatment regimen of HIV-positive individuals. We investigated the effects of 10 weeks' aerobic and resistance training on individuals with HIV-related lipodystrophy. These individuals demonstrated an improvement in exercise tolerance, body composition and blood lipid profiles. Potentially, such changes may contribute to an amelioration of some of the adverse metabolic effects associated with highly active antiretroviral therapy.
