Can three minutes of exercise a week help make you fit?

We discussed this over in this thread. If you have ME, I don't think "getting fit" is a possibility by definition! Thanks for the second post, there's some useful discussion in the comments. Of course, it's all about healthy people, rather than folks with the abnormal ME response to exercise.
