Launched in April 2014, over 100 people have taken part in Macmillan ACE, a 12 week exercise referral programme delivered as part of the Club’s commitment to fighting cancer.Run by the Foundation’s specialist cancer rehabilitation instructors, anyone living with and beyond cancer in Haringey or Enfield can easily access the free exercise sessions, available on either a group or one-to-one basis at selected Fusion Leisure Centres.Haringey and Enfield is home to almost 7,000 people living with cancer. Evidence suggests that physical activity after treatment for cancer can reduce the impact of a number of side effects and in some cases help prevent the cancer reoccurring.Differing considerably from typical exercise sessions offered by local gyms, Macmillan ACE gives people affected by cancer the support and motivation to be active, focusing on gentle exercises that promote a steady progression. Through a combination of cycling, walking, circuits, aerobics, zumba and tai-chi to strengthen the body, progress is monitored over a 12 week period where participants are encouraged to reach personal goals.If you’re interested in taking part in the Macmillan After Cancer Exercise programme please download a referral form and take it along to your GP or Cancer specialist nurse.
