But survivors get various new priorities in life to keep cancer from returning. The latest research suggests that exercise for cancer patients may help.

If you’ve made it through the rough road of cancer diagnosis and treatment, you’re probably thinking about what you can do to stay healthy. But just what is the best way to get fit, and maximize your long-term health?

Exercise can come from everyday activities such as housework, gardening and walking to the shops. Taking the stairs, stretching, dancing, playing with children and walking everywhere all build fitness and burn kilojoules. An active lifestyle is the key to good health and weight management.

Types of exercises recommendable for cancer patients are:
• Walking, jogging, running
• Dancing
• Tai chi
• Cycling
• Weight training
• Team sports
• Gardening
• Yoga
• Swimming.

Exercise has many of the same benefits for cancer survivors as it does for other adults like it helps to increase level of fitness, strengthen body muscle, leaner body mass, and less weight gain.
In other words, exercise for cancer patients can make you fitter, stronger, and thinner — like anyone else who exercises.
