Prost-FIT – Live longer and Stronger with Exercise
Exercise has been shown to provide clear benefits to men with prostate cancer. Because the evidence is so compelling, the Prostate Cancer Foundation is launching a new support programme – Prost-FIT.

It is specifically for men who are living with prostate cancer and helps them become fitter and stronger to help manage their cancer journey. The programme is delivered in a safe and supportive, fun environment providing opportunities for men to share their experiences. After being trialled in Christchurch, and then professionally reviewed, Prost-FIT will now be rolled out via fully trained exercise professionals across New Zealand.
The programme has an emphasis on fun and social interaction and includes resistance and impact training, some cardio work, pelvic floor exercises and balance, agility and coordination, and a little meditation and relaxation. Both physical and cognitive elements are involved and groups usually finish with a visit to a local café and some “rehydration”.

The developer of the programme, Tim Webster from Exercise as Medicine NZ, will present this webinar and outline both the evidence for the benefits of exercise, and also the way the exercise classes work.
