Advances in antiretroviral therapy (ART) have decreased HIV-related morbidity and mortality and contributed to rapidly increasing numbers of older people living with HIV. Successful management of ART-related side effects (metabolic syndrome) and age-related comorbidities (frailty) are major challenges for patients and providers. Exercise has proven beneficial for younger HIV-infected patients, but we know little about which exercise regimens to recommend to the elderly. Our goal was to develop age-appropriate, evidence-based exercise recommendations for older HIV-infected adults (age > 50). We reviewed randomized controlled trials on the effects of physical exercise for: (a) HIV-infected young adults, (b) frail older adults, and (c) elderly individuals with metabolic syndrome. We recommend a combination of endurance and resistance exercises 3 times per week for at least 6 weeks to improve cardiovascular, metabolic, and muscle function. Further research is warranted to study the benefits and risks of physical exercise in older HIV-infected patients.
