MacWarriors Cancer Exercise Program

MacWarriors Cancer Exercise Program offers physiotherapy-based, supervised exercise sessions for cancer survivors. Before joining group exercise sessions, a registered physiotherapist will carry out an intake assessment to help ensure safe and effective outcomes. Exercise plans are then individualized based on each individual’s diagnosis, treatment, and recovery status.


Cancer Exercise Program

Historically, cancer survivors been advised to rest during treatment and recovery. The best evidence now recommends that people with cancer remain as physically active as their symptoms allow. Research shows that exercise can improve physical function and quality of life, combat the effects of cancer treatment, and possibly prevent recurrence of some types of cancer. Our goal is to support and empower participants and maximize survivorship through exercise.
