Assesments were done before treatment, 2. month, 3. month and 6. month. In calisthenic exercise group twice a week calisthenic exercises and one a week walking on submaximal level applied. In home exercise group, three times a week walking on submaximal speed applied. Exercise programme was planned 12 weeks. The result of study, functional capacity, cognitive status and quality of life significantly higher in calisthenic exercise group during chemotherapy (p<0,05). The decrease in fatigue level and evelation of serum level of cancer marker more pronounced in calisthenic exercise group (p<0.05). The result of evaluations showed that, on 2. month all functions decreased, end of 3. month, there was an increase compared to pre-treatment period results in women. Consequently, calisthenic exercise is an effective method for reduction of treatment side effect and protect and increase of physical, functional and coginitive functions in women with breast cancer.
