Prost-FIT Exercise Programme

Why should cancer survivors exercise?
If you are being treated for cancer, or recovering, you may have thought it was important to rest, but research shows that tailored exercise benefits most people with cancer before, during and after treatment. Being active can help manage some of the common side effects of treatment, speed up recovery and improve quality of life. Research suggests exercise may help lower the chances of cancer returning in some people by as much as 50-60%

What is Prost-FIT?
Prost-FIT is designed specifically for men living with disease, at any stage of diagnosis or treatment. Involving both physical and cognitive elements delivered in a supporting environment, with an emphasis on fun and social interaction, Prost-FIT also offers camaraderie and opportunities for shared experiences. Proudly supported by Dry July NZ Trust, Prost-FIT is accredited by the Prostate Cancer Foundation NZ (PCFNZ) and delivered by trained, registered exercise professionals.

How much does it cost?
One free class per participant, per week for 40 weeks per year, are available. Additional classes over and above this will incur a participation fee.
