The Lifestyle Medicine Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center recommends an exercise program for cancer patients and survivors, based on baseline fitness, personal goals, and cancer therapy to minimize side effects, prevent loss of function, and improve long-term outcomes.
Our exercises videos can be used as single workouts or as part of a fitness plan. Click here for an example of a fitness plan incorporating the videos.
Please consult your doctor before beginning an exercise regimen.
If you are not currently exercising or do not exercise often, start slowly using the ‘easy’ videos. Once you are more comfortable, you can begin the more intensive videos. If you need help getting started or want to make a plan tailored to your needs, you can make an appointment at our Lifestyle Clinic at (617) 724-4000.
