CU Fitter™ – fighting cancer with exercise.

You may have been signposted to the CU Fitter™ Active Cancer Recovery exercise programme by your Clinician, your Clinical Nurse Specialist, or your Macmillan support worker. Or, you may have picked up a leaflet or read about our services online. Whichever path brought you here – welcome to CU Fitter.

From the moment you contact us we can, through cancer exercise, help you on your cancer journey.

Your initial consultation will be undertaken by one of our experienced and qualified CU Fitter™ Cancer Exercise Specialists (CU Fitter™ CESs), who will work with you to select a pathway that is safe and effective, taking into consideration your cancer treatments and any other health issues.  This may include use of the gym, access to a range of classes, or membership of our weekly OutKick Cancer walking football team.

Our CESs have designed a programme of classes based on what our members have told us they need.  These include:

  • Classes which are designed to tackle the most frequently reported side effects of treatment such as fatigue
  • Classes specifically designed to improve fitness, bone density, muscle tone and core strength.

All our CU Fitter™ CESs are not only trained to understand what you need to support your physical health and fitness, but your mental wellbeing too.  We know what it takes to deal with the emotional effects of cancer.
