HCCN Get Active Programme

You can be referred to our Get Active Programme where we offer 24 weeks of supported return to a healthy lifestyle, which can be followed by a reduced rate programme offered at Huntingdon Leisure Centre. Again this programme is designed specifically to support people managing a diagnosis of cancer and is run for us by an appropriately trained Personal Trainer.

On this programme we seek to assess where you are now and work with you to find the way forward that best suits your needs.

Run by Marion Foreman of Forefront Fitness. (marion@forefrontfitness.co.uk)  

Marion has many years of experience as a nurse (much of this within the speciality of cancer) and as a Personal Trainer and Exercise Professional.  Marion also has additional qualifications in Exercise Referral and Cancer Rehabilitation.

Your nurse is the person to speak to in order to understand how to access this programme.

One of the classes offered within the Get Active programme is:

Circuits Class

It is widely known that exercise is beneficial to people on their cancer journey and beyond.

Prof. Thomas, in his book ‘lifestyle and cancer’ tells us that ‘patients who exercise regularly are associated with a lower risk of their cancer returning and generally surviving longer’.

It can be difficult to know what exercises to do for the best so we are offering a very special opportunity

Marion has many years of experience as a nurse (much of this within the speciality of cancer) and as a Personal Trainer and Exercise Professional. Marion also has additional qualifications in Exercise Referral and Cancer Rehabilitation.

This class will be tailored to your needs. We recognise that your energy levels may vary from week to week so we will take this into account when planning the circuits.

Held as a drop in every Monday and Thursday afternoon you can choose whether or not you have the energy or motivation to turn up. This class is for people on treatment or after they have finished. It is for any ability but patients only please.

Hunts Community Cancer Network

The team invite you to join them on the 14th August at Ellington Village Hall, just off the A14 west and about 15 mins away from the hospital, to have a drink and piece of cake and to hear Annie and her team’s plans for a varied range of activities. In the photos you can see yoga being practiced, tea and cake on offer and a hand massage in progress. We will be open from 10am to 2 pm. Car sharing is a good idea as the hall doesn’t have its own car park. There will be lots on offer but some things are only for short periods so keep an eye on Faceboook to make sure you don’t miss out.
You’ll find the welcome warm. We really look forward to meeting you.
Annie and the team.
