The exercise clinic is an individually prescribed exercise program for people with cancer.

The clinic is facilitated by third year Clinical Exercise Physiology students and supervised by experienced accredited exercise physiologists.

The goal of the clinic is to encourage physical activity and help participants incorporate exercise into their long-term treatment plans.

The program is held in April-May each year, is FREE and includes at least:

  • 2 assessments of aerobic fitness, muscle strength, cardiovascular health, balance and flexibility.
  • 4 individualised exercise sessions facilitated by third year exercise physiology students and supervised by experienced exercise physiologists designed to improve your muscular strength and power, aerobic fitness and balance.
  • A personalised home exercise program to provide guidance for ongoing home-based exercise.

Participants are asked to attend a one-hour session each week for six weeks.

Sessions will take place in a private, fully equipped gym operated by The University of Queensland.

Participants are required to obtain a letter from their physician (template provided) with relevant information to assist with exercise testing and prescription.

Free convenient parking will be available for all sessions.

Express interest in attending

We will advertise for new intakes to the exercise program from early 2024.
