Jubilee Hall gym in Covent Garden has made a commitment to provide an exercise referral pathway for people recovering from cancer. Studio Manager, Kathy Wren, has just qualified with Distinction as a Level 4 Cancer Exercise Rehabilitation Specialist. The course was funded by Prostate Cancer UK to enable Jubilee Hall to develop the service, which is dedicated to providing safe exercise options for people living with the effects of cancer, and the health effects of associated treatments.
Kathy (pictured here with Professor Greg Whyte, Chair of the Uk Active Reseach Institute) said:
‘A significant amount of research has been done into the benefits of physical activity for cancer sufferers as part of the Macmillan ‘Move More’ project and I am looking forward to getting this initiative off the ground early in the New Year and to make a positive contribution to the health and wellbeing of our local communities.’
