Vital Role of Physical Activity
Carlisle Leisure Limited Supports Cancer Patients.
Carlisle Leisure are pleased to announce their support for the Duty Of Care scheme set up by Sandra Jones for people diagnosed with cancer. Geoff Haugh Health and Wellbeing Co-Ordinator at the Sands has a agreed to oversee any patients that feel they may benefit from any form of exercise whilst undergoing or whilst having had cancer treatment.
CLL can offer a wide range of Fitness activities at various sites in Carlisle andWest Cumbriaand are only too pleased to be involved . Linking in to recent studies that have proved that those people who have managed to stay at the same weight or perhaps have lost a little bit of weight are the ones who reduce the risk of certain cancers coming back.
Being physically active after treatment can be a positive step in helping you recover. It helps you manage some treatment side effects and also lower your risk of getting other health problems. There is also some evidence that it may help you reduce the risk of certain cancers coming back.
CLL can offer various programmes to benefit patients if you are Pre/during or post treatment, and these can be at the individuals choice, a yoga or pilates class or perhaps some swimming or aqua resistance work. If you feel up to it we will offer a low level of personal training where a programme will be designed to suit your needs and you will be monitored throughout.
You can also join the Exercise On Referral scheme which gives you 12 supervised sessions costing only £2.00 , where again a programme will be designed for you and you will be monitored throughout.
If you feel at anything mentioned above can be of help to you please contact Geoff Haugh on 01228 633760 and he will be pleased to discuss the best route for you.
