Physical inactivity and its negative influence on health and the quality of life is a common problem generally, especially in patients with chronic illness and also in patients with end-stage renal disease. Motivation for regular physical exercise could be a problem. A supervised outpatient program in a rehabilitation center, a home exercise rehabilitation program and an exercise rehabilitation program during the first hours of the hemodialysis treatment with a bed bicycle ergometer in the renal unit could be carried out. Low intensity aerobic activity has a favorable effect on cardiovascular risk factor, and gymnastics to increase strength, flexibility and coordination, as well as relaxation techniques are very effective exercises in a rehabilitation program. The positive influence of individual regular exercise on health, quality of life, physical exercise capacity, endurance, muscle strength, social, professional and emotional status is also very high in patients. Side effects of exercise are very rare.
