Take part in our study to improve exercise prescriptions for people living with and beyond cancer

We are recruiting volunteers, who are living with or beyond any type or stage of cancer, to complete virtual fitness tests and an online questionnaire.

Regular exercise can limit the side effects of cancer and its treatment, even improving the way some anti-cancer medicines work. However, exercise programmes are often difficult to stick to and it is not always known whether they are having an effect.

Exercise interventions delivered over the internet can help people to take part, but their effectiveness would be easier to determine if participants could test their own improvements in fitness, strength, power, and flexibility.

Take part in this research

We are currently recruiting for this study.


To take part in this study you must be:

  • aged 18 years or over
  • be living with or beyond any type and stage of cancer
  • be deemed safe to exercise by a medical professional

What’s involved in the study

We want to ask people living with and beyond cancer to complete three virtually supervised video calls where they will be asked to perform simple fitness, strength, power, and flexibility, and to complete an online questionnaire asking for their thoughts on the test results that they received.

All video calls will be scheduled to suit your availability, so there is no need to take time away from your normal commitments.

What you'll get for taking part in the study

By taking part, you will help to create new online exercise programmes that are easier to stick to and more effective for improving overall health and wellbeing among people living with and beyond cancer.

You will also receive a summary of the study results and an explanation of your own fitness test measurements.

Your data

All of your data will be handled in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). You will not be identifiable in any publications. Your data will be stored on the University of Bath’s secure computer server and will only be accessible by the research team.


We are conducting this research in collaboration with Fighting Fit For Cancer.
