ACE Key Features

How is ACE unique from other exercise programs in the community?

Exercise Specialist

All ACE instructors have received education and training to prepare them to work with individuals who have cancer. 
 
The ACE team provides onsite or remote support to instructors, and connection to the cancer healthcare team. 
Cancer-specific
Community-based
Exercise Classes

Programs are offered in community locations that are more convenient for survivors. 

 

The ACE team provides support to the survivor in enrolling in programming and helps to address any issues related to taking part in exercise. 

Screening and
Referral of Survivors

 

Survivors are screened to ensure that it is safe for them to take part in a community-based exercise program.

 

If any issues are identified the ACE team will contact the survivor's physician.  Where available, the survivor may be referred to alternative/ transition 

programming or to physical therapy services.
