Abstract: Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome and obesity are non-communicable diseases that lead to several complications. Many of those consequences, for example low cardiorespiratory fitness and marked breathlessness, can be improved by cardiovascular training. Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome and obesity have been associated with exertional dyspnea and with increased locomotor and respiratory muscle fatigue. Application of non-invasive ventilation is suggested to improve exercise tolerance in obesity while other studies suggest that respiratory muscles training also improve exercise tolerance. It is in this specific context that this thesis was written. We wanted to verify the impact on exercise capacity and tolerance of the following training modalities: cardiovascular training, cardiovascular training with non-invasive ventilation or cardiovascular training combined with a respiratory muscles training.
