Studies have shown that physical activity levels tend to reduce significantly after cancer diagnosis and remain low for many years after treatment is completed. From this low baseline there is great scope for exercise interventions to improve the health and well-being of patients with cancer. Cancer diagnosis can signal a “teachable moment” with patients often demonstrating an enhanced motivation to change lifestyle behaviours, especially within the year after diagnosis.
