The Wellness Gym

The Wellness Gym Otago grows a supportive community of cancer survivors, providing them with tailored, research-led exercise programmes.

Dunedin, Otago

Every cancer is different, but most treatment plans are invasive, physically and emotionally. Cancer survivors feel like they are not in control of their health outcome as they go through the prescribed treatment regime. Once they are discharged from hospital, they often fall into a hole of “what now”.

The Wellness Gym fills this gap in two ways:

(1) by developing custom programmes for our clients, they regain control over their recovery and wellbeing; and

(2) by coming to the gym alongside other cancer survivors, they become part of an incredibly strong community, supporting each other no matter what life brings.

Previously run at the University of Otago for 12 years, we are establishing The Wellness Gym Otago in the community. Our Dunedin Hub is now open, and we will run more outreach programmes across the Otago region.
