RESIDENTS who have had cancer treatment in the past two years are encouraged to join a fitness and strength program at Mandurah Aquatic and Recreation Centre.

The aim of the program is for cancer patients and their carers to attend an exercise group, supported by a health professional, to build strength, fitness and confidence to exercise into the future.

Research shows exercise decreases fatigue and increases quality of life for those living with cancer.

Previous participants said it was a good opportunity to exercise with others facing a similar life situation.

The 12-week program starts on September 20. Accredited exercise physiologist Clinton Joynes will set up individual strength and cardiovascular programs for participants.

For more information call the Cancer Council’s helpline on 131120 or Clinton on 9524 9630
