Experimental: Exercise training
Protocol of 3 month exercise training program.
Behavioral: Exercise training
Exercise training program for 3 months (two times a week).
No Intervention: Control
- Change from baseline of peak oxygen uptake on graded exercise. [ Time Frame: After 3 month exercise training ]Changes in physical fitness after 3 month exercise training. This will be measured by a cardiopulmonary exercise test with recording of maximal oxygen uptake during incremental exercise.
- Change from baseline of six minute walk [ Time Frame: After 3 month exercise training ]Change in the distance covered during a 6 minute walk after 3 month exercise training.
- Change from baseline of NYHA class [ Time Frame: After 3 month exercise training ]Change in subjective assessment of function capacity based on the New York Heart Association Class classification after 3 month exercise training.
