There is much scientific evidence that indicates that physical exercise training is not only appropriate but also warranted for patients with HIV/AIDS. This was study carried out to identify the Intervention of floor aerobic exercise on hematological characteristics of people living with HIV/AIDS Anti Retroviral Therapy (ART) users. A convenience sample of 52 subjects (26 male and 26 female participants) between the age of 30 and 50 years (mean 38.6) were participated with a minimum of 28 and maximum 36 sessions. The study aimed to compare of the results before and after exercise of the study subjects and also with respect to sex difference. The results were assessed one pre exercise test and three post exercise tests for three continuous months. T-test analysis was used to test significant differences between Pre Exercise Test Result (PETR) and Post Exercise Test Result (POETR) of components of hematological results. The mean comparison of hematological count of PETR compared with POETR within them and in terms of sex difference has shown that significantly difference at the probability level of 5%. The higher mean value of WBC, MCV, MCH and MCHC obtained by females and the remaining hematological parameters highest mean value of RBC, HGB, HCT, RDW, PCT, PLT, MPV, PCT and PDW obtained by males at PEOTR with compared to PETR value. These findings suggest that increasing duration, frequency, modality and intensity of floor aerobics exercise might have beneficial effects on immunity induction in people with HIV/AIDS.
