Word is spreading that staying active before, during and after cancer treatment can have HUGE benefits.
One of the biggest motivations is that it can help improve your longer-term outcomes, including reducing the risk of cancer returning. Here's some guidance on how to get going.
Regular exercise can reduce stress and give you more energy, even during your treatment.
Exercise has a positive impact on cancer-related fatigue and other treatment side effects. Returning to fitness after cancer can feel very challenging, but also pretty daunting. Motivation is low, you’re exhausted and unsure what to do. From personal experience, knowing what exercises are right for you can be a very beneficial step to getting started.

Top tips for building an exercise programme after cancer
The foundation to every exercise programme is a daily walk. Get outside, get your heart rate up and get walking. Build from this each day by increasing time, distance and finally speed (if you want).
Strength and resistance training for women is a very important addition. You can do many of these exercises from the comfort of your own home. Here are some free videos to get you started.
Stretching and mobility continue to be important, even after your active treatment has finished
