Fighting Fit

Supporting people living with or recovering from cancer in Lincolnshire.


Fighting Fit focuses on low-impact fitness designed to help you to maintain or increase physical activity levels at a pace that suits you and supports you in the fight against cancer and long-term health conditions. 


We will help you build your strength, motivation and physical ambitions. However, It's not all about the body!

Being physically active has multiple benefits for people living with cancer:


  • Reduce risk of cancer recurrence – being active during and after cancer treatment can reduce the risk of recurrence in some cancers. It can also reduce the risk of developing other long-term conditions.

  • Reduce side effects – being active during and after cancer treatment can reduce some side effects of cancer and cancer treatment. Side effects activity helps with include fatigue, depression, weight gain, blood clots, hot flushes, night sweats and nerve damage.

  • Prevent decline in physical ability – being active during cancer treatment can prevent a decline in physical ability without increasing fatigue levels.

  • Recover physical ability – being active after cancer treatment helps patients recover physical ability.

  • Maintain independence – in cases of advanced cancer physical activity can help patients maintain independence and well-being.

For several weeks I have been attending Fighting Fit


Following my Breast Surgery, Chemo and Radiotherapy I struggled with movement of my left arm to any extent and decided to seek help and was offered this course.


Due to the efforts and patience of the coach, my Doctor, friends and colleagues have all noticed many health improvements including my high blood pressure is nearly at normal, varicose veins have disappeared and my arm has near full range of movement.


I have a sedentary job and was achieving less than 1000 steps a day but now I reach 5000+ and as a result, I have lost 16lb in weight.


I am so grateful to the foundation for setting me in the right direction and I will endeavour to continue on my journey.

Research Participation

Bishop Grosseteste University are completing a research project investigating the effectiveness of a circuit training program on balance and fear of falling in people with cancer. The study is aiming to identify whether people who have, or had, cancer have a better or worse balance than people who do not have cancer. Participation in this research study will involve gathering some information about you, your cancer, and your history of falls. You will also be asked to take part in a baseline assessment of your balance (approximately 15 minutes), as well as completing a fear of falling questionnaire on how concerned you are about falling in different circumstances (approximately 5 minutes). Following the Fighting Fit program with Lincoln City Foundation, you will be asked to complete the balance assessment and fear of falling questionnaire again. 

Thanks for submitting, a member of the team will be in touch soon.
