SIRvivor BC

 

 

What is SIRvivor BC?

The SIRvivor BC Prostate Cancer Community Exercise Program runs for 12-weeks, consisting of 2 one hour sessions each week. The program is tailored to men living with prostate cancer and focuses largely on strength development through resistance based exercise. The program is delivered by exercise trainers certified through the BC Recreation and Parks Association. This program is also being evaluated under a research study, which seeks to gather feedback from the program participants on their experience in the SIRvivor BC program. We hope to use this feedback to help us improve and grow the program over the course of the next few years

Who is Eligible for SIRvivor BC?

All men who are 19 years of age or older and have had a prostate cancer diagnosis are eligible for the SIRvivor BC program. All participants will also be asked to complete a simple pre-exercise screening with a certified exercise physiologist.
