Get Active classes
The Centre offers a group physical activity class on Mondays from 2.00-3.00pm that is designed specifically for people who have been affected by cancer. Being more active can help you manage side effects such as fatigue and depression, both during and after cancer treatment.
The class is led by Mark Wild, a Level 4 Cancer Rehabilitation Fitness Instructor with many years of experience working with people recovering from surgery or who are having chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments.
There will be a mixture of low intensity cardiovascular and resistance based activities which are designed to be effective in improving strength and flexibility. You will be encouraged to do the exercises at your own pace, and to your own level of ability. Some people do the exercises seated and the group is small so that Mark can provide individual support.
The class is held at Paul's Centre or during warmer weather, in local parks.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing for exercise and trainers.
While being physically active is very safe for most people, we need to make sure that you take up the most suitable type of activity for you. Mark will give you a brief health questionnaire to complete before your first group session.
Come and find out how you can be more active in a fun, friendly, and safe environment.
