Background and aim : Muscle weakness and fatigue leads to decreased functional capacities and diminished quality of life in Multiple Sclerosis patients. However, exercise routinely for these patients is acceptable, but its impact has not been proven. Aim this study was to assess effect of exercise on muscular performance and functional, degree of disability, fatigue and quality of life of patients with MS.
 
Methods: twenty four 20-50-year-old women, with multiple sclerosis and the expanded disability status scale (EDSS) ranged between 2- 5 were randomly divided into two groups of control(12 patients) and experimental(12 patients). The exercise training included three sessions per week, lasting for 12 weeks (two sessions of aerobic training and one session of resistance training).
 
Result: The results showed that 12 weeks of Combined exercise training caused a significant increase in lower body strength (P=0.019), upper body strength (P=0.001), Dynamic balance (P=0.025), gait speed(P=0.008) and endurance (P=0.0001) factors, quality of life(P=0.007) and a significant decrease  in degree of disability(P=0.007) and fatigue(P=0.001). 
 
Conclusions: Generally speaking, the combined exercise training, including aerobic and resistance training, in three non-consecutive days per week are helpful for women with MS and Improves sensorimotor function. The relevant specialists can use these exercises as a complementary therapeutic with drug therapies to reduce the clinical complications of MS patients.
