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 at Huntingdon One Leisure, 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.

One Leisure Active Lifestyles

The partnership is all about making it easy to restart an exercise routine or to find out which exercise would be best to help kick start a new regime. The programme is aimed at all those with a diagnosis, regardless of age.

The Active Lifestyle Team is qualified to understand all exercising needs in level 4 cancer rehab. The HCCN nursing team will be able to complete a referral form for anyone who has been under their care which provides all the information the class leader needs.

INFO: The new programme begins on Tuesday, January 8, at One Leisure St Neots (4pm–5pm) and Thursday, January 10, at One Leisure St Ives (4.30pm – 5.30pm).

Thank you lovely ladies of the Tangent Club St Neots. We really appreciate your support. Especially that you braved the awful traffic at Hinchingbrooke Hospital to deliver it to us. Your help means so much to us and allows us to offer support to others coping with a diagnosis of cancer.

Thank you to the wonderful people of Duke’s Lake for your terrific support to HCCN. What a contrast today’s weather was from that glorious afternoon and evening we spent with you when you came together as a community to have fun and to raise money for a local charity. It was such a pleasure to meet with you all again.
