Exercise reduces stress along with a huge host of other benefits (diabetes, cholesterol etc).

As you know stress is bad for your immune system.

Watch out for the older HIV books, as some of them falsely document that exercise does not help your T-Cells (e.g. The first year with HIV, page 160).

It is true that too much exercise can negatively impact your immune system. An hour a day is a good excersise training pattern. Don't over do it.

Also, use hand sanitizer and wear weight lifting gloves at the gym and never rub your eyes. There are a lot of bugs at the gym.

I got  sick in March and it hung on. I ended up with a secondary infection  and  was just wiped out all month. I have since  started  a exercise routine not for my T-cells but for my  whole body. If I start   healthier maybe I won't get knocked as low if I get sick.
If someone tells you  potential consequences of a behavior  it  doesn't  mean they jude you or mit    they may just give a shit about you

Clsoca points out many benefits of exercise. Apart from those, many people with HIV experience bone density loss and resistance training (i.e. weights, either free weights or machines) helps prevent that by strengthening bones.

If a person already has bone density loss I'm not sure how much is an OK amount of exercise to do (moderation is key) but it's definitely good as a preventive measure, along with a good diet and maybe even calcium/vitamin D supplements if necessary.
