B-FIT programme is success story for Gary Kelly Centre

The Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre launched its B-FIT Cancer Rehabilitation Programme in October 2018.

It is a 12-week community based programme involving a combination of aerobic and resistance training for people who have completed cancer treatment. Classes are led and supervised by a senior physiotherapist and an exercise specialist.

This is an evidence based programme originally developed in the Sports Rehabilitation Centre, Dublin City University. The programme aims to provide individuals with the confidence to get back to an active and healthy life style following their treatment.

The centre would like thank to Gary and Julieanne Kelly who facilitated the programme in their GK Gym. Feedback from the programme has been very positive with participants reporting improvement in overall fitness level as well as weight loss and improved confidence and self-esteem levels.
