There’s an avalanche of evidence that exercise is truly and effective, and none more so than for men with prostate cancer for whom it has been shown to provide very clear benefits.
Prost-FIT is an exercise programme designed specifically for men with prostate cancer, helping them become fitter and stronger to help manage their cancer journey. Involving both physical and cognitive elements, delivered in a supportive environment with an emphasis on fun and social interaction, Prost-FIT also offers camaraderie and opportunities for shared experiences. Having been been successfully trialed in Christchurch, The Prostate Cancer Foundation is committed to making it available to more Kiwi men, and has teamed up with programme developers Exercise as Medicine to implement a nationwide roll-out. Classes are up and running at Mt Maunganui, starting in Northcote 29 October (see Events Calendar), and in the pipeline in Invercargill, Napier and New Plymouth.
