Introduction: The physical exercise is considered "A" evidence for treatment in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Despite several benefits obtained by patients with COPD in training and different recommendations of the international guidelines to these programs, the adherence for these patients is still lacking. In this view, alternative interventions are necessary for better adherence of patients with COPD to these programs. Objective: To verify the acceptability and satisfaction of patients with COPD in a conventional training associated a functional exercise in short-term and compare with patients that had performed the conventional training isolated. Methods: The patients will be randomized in two training groups: combined conventional training (G1) or combined conventional training associated with functional exercise (G2). In the end of the trainings a quality assessment will be performed in both groups. The data are be collecting through group discussion. Statistical analysis: Analysis of qualitative data will be performed through content analysis, which will be developed as a means of categorizing data for classification, organization and compaction purposes. After this initial analysis, we will discuss the differences in results until a consensus is reached. The final results of this data analysis will be sent to the discussion group participants to see if the findings truly reflect their perspectives and points of view.
