In recent times, pneumonia associated with a novel coronavirus named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 has engulfed majority of the world population. Despite the fact reported that children and young adults are at lower risk from the infection of the COVID-19 than the population of other age groups, young-aged individuals have chances of getting infected which may lead to several complications either in mild or moderate or severe forms. It shows an effect on cardiovascular endurance along with many adverse effects even in a previously healthy young individual. Necessity of assessing the cardiac endurance in post-COVID-19–affected patients is at most as this makes them analyze their cardiac fitness. Here, we report a case of a 30-year-old COVID-19 recovery patient who had faced cardiovascular endurance problems. Cardiac rehabilitation and self-cardiovascular endurance evaluation were coached. After 2 weeks, the patient reported moderate improvement regarding cardiovascular endurance.
