Disco and pop classics from the 1970s and 1980s is being used to inspire people with a recent experience of cancer to stay physically active.

Albion in the Community (AITC), the official charity of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, has been running its Brighter Outlook programme for three years, providing people in Brighton and Hove who have, or have just had, cancer with 10-weeks of free support.

The charity already offers a popular circuit training class and a running club but is branching out to offer a gentle exercise class set to the hits of the 70s and 80s.

AITC’s Feel Good Moves sessions will feature classic hits from both decades, with the music providing the perfect soundtrack to gentle cardio work and simple conditioning. The aim is to help improve flexibility and fitness to offset some of the side effects of cancer treatment.

“We know that staying active during and after treatment for cancer is not only safe but hugely beneficial,” said Angie Steel, AITC’s physical activity coordinator. “Feel Good Moves is all about finding some fun in what can be a most difficult time in someone’s life. You don’t need any fancy exercise gear or any ability to dance – Feel Good Moves is the perfect first step into activity.

“Everyone else in the group will be going through something similar and I will be leading the class – as well as taking requests for the playlist.”
