This article will outline the clinical reasoning for exercise counseling in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients and give healthcare providers detailed information on the different programs that can be implemented in this population according to patients' specific needs. End-stage renal disease patients often have other health problems that can be improved by participation in regular exercise programs. Research accumulated during the last 30 years on exercise for the ESRD population supports its numerous beneficial effects including those on cardiovascular capacity, sarcopenia, and health-related quality of life. We describe the different types of exercise, aerobic and resistance programs (including their frequency, intensity and progression) that are recommended for the ESRD population, as well as the potential goals of each program. Groups with special needs among the ESRD population are considered, as well as safety, potential adverse events, and adherence to exercise programs. Finally, recommendations for future researches are highlighted.
