Brief description This will be the first study to examine whether a short-term and long-term program of ground walking training is sufficient to improve and maintain exercise capacity and quality of life in people with COPD. If ground walking training is shown to be an effective intervention, this will translate into more widespread provision of exercise training to people with COPD, particularly those living in rural or remote communities.
