Abstract

We know exercising keeps us healthy; what is less self-evident is whether patients undergoing active treatment or following the completion of therapy for cancer may also benefit from exercise rehabilitation. This Review outlines the effects, mechanisms and clinical importance of anticancer treatment on cardiorespiratory fitness, as well as the efficacy of supervised exercise training to mitigate and/or prevent the adverse impact of a cancer diagnosis on fitness.
