Cancer and Exercise
Working in partnership with Woking Borough Council
The importance of physical activity for people living with and beyond cancer is very important at all stages of the cancer care pathway.
Exercising regularly reduces the risk of developing common side effects which can occur at any time, even years afterwards such as weight gain, loss of muscle strength, fatigue and lymphoedema (a chronic condition that causes swelling when the lymphatic system is not able to drain fluid properly).
Keeping active has a potential role in reducing the risk of cancer recurrence, increases survival rates and improves psychological well-being.
The classes are suitable for all levels of fitness whether you are pre, currently having or post treatment, no matter how long ago. All levels and abilities are catered for from complete beginner to enthusiast so please call/email for a chat.
You will receive a free one to one consultation before attending the class. The first class is free and you are welcome to bring a relative/friend.
Why not contact me for a chat with no obligation. I am happy to give advice on exercise, even if you feel the class would not work for you.
£5 per class

Group Walking Programmes
(acg) Ashtead Cancer Group was established in February 2014. The group meets on a monthly basis and have various speakers who come to share their knowledge about topics related to health, legal, diet and fashion tips. The group helps local cancer patients, survivors and carers to get emotional and physical support.
acg and Wellbeing and Exercise have been running a regular walking group for a year now. It is an ideal time to have a friendly chat with others whilst getting fit. You can find out more about the dates and time for the organized walks on the acg website.

Byfleet Healthy Hearts - Cardiac and Exercise
Byfleet Healthy Hearts is an exercise group I run for people who have had a heart attack, suffer from angina, surgery, stent or another heart related problem.
Regular aerobic exercise increases functional capacity, can relieve symptoms and reduces the risk of developing other long term conditions including decreasing risk of another heart attack, improved cholesterol, reduced blood pressure and reduced anxiety/depression.
To find out more please call me so we can discuss your needs and take the next step forward to a fitter and healthier you. Whether you are a complete beginner or experienced these classes can work for you.
