As part of our health & wellbeing services in Havering, we provide a FREE 10-week exercise programme for people who have been diagnosed with, or are receiving treatment for, cancer.

What we offer

  • An informal consultation with a qualified coach to discuss cancer, treatment, lifestyle changes and the benefits of a tailored exercise programme.
  • A flexible, bespoke 10-week exercise and lifestyle programme – provided on a 1:1 basis.
  • A wide range of fitness classes and activities to suit all levels in a friendly and welcoming environment.
  • The possibility of reducing symptoms from cancer, cancer treatments and the likelihood of recurrence of cancer.

This was a unique opportunity which supported me during some tough times. Pat provided me with an exercise programme that suited my individual needs, and it was wonderful to have someone that encouraged me to push to be my best whilst being sensitive to my needs as a breast cancer survivor.
