WHAT IS RENEW?

RENEW is designed to help you keep moving through and beyond cancer, whatever your diagnosis, however you're feeling. We know that staying active is hard at the best of times. Throw cancer into the mix and it's even trickier. But you don't need us to tell you how important it is. Want to meet others whilst regaining confidence in your body, building strength, improving your physical and mental health, combating your fatigue and improving your sleep? RENEW is exactly what you need.

Being diagnosed with cancer impacts your mind and body in more ways than we can count. That's why we've specially designed a free 8-week course of small online group classes run by experienced cancer exercise specialists who'll be on hand to support you and cheer you on every step of the way. These experts know that the struggle is real when you're exercising with or beyond cancer and they'll tailor everything to your needs. And we know exercising alone is no fun, so you'll also get to hang out with others and get a sweat on together.  

Each session builds on the one before and all exercises can be adjusted for any level of fitness and take into account any limitations you may have. The class will include resistance training and cardio to build strength and stamina whilst also giving you a chance to connect and get active with others who get it too. The sessions are fun and last for 45 mins with time to chat afterwards.

So you know exactly how much progress you are making at the beginning, middle and end everyone does a little fitness test - you'll be blown away by how much progress you make - guaranteed.

You'll get a RENEW booklet packed with tips about keeping active and a space to track your progress and an area to set goals too. We'll also send you our nutrition booklet and be sent a link to access to some great videos on sleep and other topics to help you reach your goals.

GETTING YOU STARTED

Before we can get you started we want to make sure everything is safe for everyone who's involved. That's why we ask you to answer some questions so we know a bit more about you, your cancer diagnosis and how you are.

We know the forms are a bit long, but bear with it as we want to ensure we don't just look after your body, but look after your mind too. 

People tell us RENEW is transformative, but we like to keep an eye on that by doing a little before and after check-in so you'll have just one more form to fill in at the end of the programme too. 

TIME TO FILL OUT SOME FORMS TO GET YOU STARTED: 

CONSENT FORM

SIGN ME UP

Still in treatment? Then you need to get your doctor or nurse to fill this one out too. 

MEDICAL REFERRAL 

The NHS computers can be a bit slow so make it easy for your Oncology team by sending them this too: 

NHS FORM

What's next?

Once we've received your completed forms, we'll team you up in groups of 6. We work hard to make sure everyone will be at a similar activity level. We'll then send the info you provided to the instructor before the class, so they're aware of everything beforehand. We try to get people started within a couple of weeks, but we're a small team so this may take a little longer if we are having to chase you or your Oncology team so do bear with us.

Worried you might forget? We'll send you a reminder each week about your class.
