Course Description

Seminar Overview

This is a very unique seminar which aims to develop a learner’s knowledge and understanding of the common types of cancer but more specifically the types of treatments people may go through. We explore how these treatments can affect the body and how physical activity and exercise can help make the journey through treatment or post treatment more manageable and positive. This condition is exceptionally complex and it is our intention with the seminar to focus on how we as fitness professionals and coaches can make a person’s everyday life more enjoyable and maintain independence.

The seminar aims to:

  • Overview the common types of cancer
  • Explore the different types of cancer treatments and how they affect the body
  • Identify the benefits of physical activity and exercise during and post treatment
  • Highlight the key considerations that must be taken when exercising with this client group
  • Recognise and apply health and safety considerations
