Physical Activity (PA) combats effects of multi-morbidity and ART in people with HIV (PWH). We investigated whether supervised PA improved functional capacity in PWH. Supervised aerobic/progressive resistance training (PRT) improved strength, cardiovascular, and flexibility outcomes. PRT improved strength. T'ai chi improved cardiovascular and flexibility outcomes. Self-report wasn't a reliable assessment.
