Physical activity and cancer
About this booklet
This booklet is about physical activity and cancer. Physical activity is any type of exercise or movement that uses your muscles. This includes everyday activities such as walking, housework and gardening. Any type of activity will help maintain or improve your fitness, health and well-being.
It is for anyone who has cancer or has had treatment for cancer and is thinking about becoming more physically active. There is also information for carers, family members and friends.
We also have a Move More pack which includes a copy of the Physical activity and cancer booklet, and an activity chart so you can see what you have achieved each day. And there is a Move More DVD which includes gentle activity videos you can do at home.
