ME/CFS “Exercise Group” Site Showcases Video Series by Klimas & Moricoli

Dr. Nancy Klimas, MD, director of the CFS Clinic in Miami, exercise physiologist Connie Sol, and ME/CFS patient/videographer Dan Moricoli have developed a multi-part video series to help people support healing through movement while avoiding post-exercise malaise (what the new International Consensus Criteria for ME call ‘post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion’). Needed equipment is limited to an inexpensive heart rate monitor like the wristwatch-type worn by participants in the video.

Following is the first video, on Step 1 in the Klimas Exercise & ME/CFS Program – The VO2 Max Testing Procedure.

The remaining three videos include:

• The Post VO2 Max Testing Consult,

• A video featuring Connie Sol demonstrating first steps to a patient (and explaining how even bedridden patients can get started safely),

• And a wonderful “personal view” of the program by Dan Moricoli. He shows a video of himself 18 months earlier, before he started the VO2 Max-based exercise program that Dr. Klimas devised, and explains how it has helped him to improve.

YOU CAN WATCH THE WHOLE SET OF VIDEOS FREE at an ME-CFS site that Dan created and helps moderate, called The Exercise Group, at

The Exercise Group’s many resources are free to all – videos, exercise support & information, and discussions. But as noted, they can only continue their services with your financial support. “A contribution of just $5 from you would be gratefully appreciated.”

To all who worked hard to offer these resources, thank you for the inspiration.

    I have been considering buying a heart rate monitor for some time but am confused about whether to buy one with a chest strap or not. Some sites say that the wrist band only watches aren’t as good. Can you please advise on this?
