Exercise after breast cancer

Women who have experienced breast cancer at any time in their lives are being invited to register for a free after-breast-cancer exercise program to be conducted in Woy Woy.

The program runs for eight weeks, can be tailored to all fitness levels, from the fit to those with inhibited movement, abilities, and incorporates land and hydrotherapy exercises.

"Exercise is one of the ways of supporting the body to recover after cancer treatment and it's also a good way of keeping spirits up," said program manager Ms Kate Guthrey.

"The Encore program not only offers women the proven benefits of exercise, but it also allows them the opportunity to connect with others sharing similar experiences and speaking without judgement which is a very important part of recovery," Ms Guthrey said.

Being diagnosed with breast cancer can change life in a moment and the program helped women stay well after experiencing this adversity, she said.

"Whilst each program has a strong focus on specifically targeted exercise, the sessions also include information sharing through guest speakers and links into local community services and resources, as well as enabling participants to meet others who have had similar experiences."
