About this Study

ACE-Neuro (i.e., Alberta Cancer Exercise-Neuro) is a tailored, 12-week exercise program designed specifically for individuals affected by brain cancer.

The 12-week program features twice weekly exercise sessions, delivered both one-on-one and in a group-based setting by qualified exercise professionals. In addition, participants receive health coaching and an activity tracker to use throughout the program. Participants also complete questionnaires and fitness assessments prior to starting the program, post-program (12 weeks), at 6 months, and at 12 months. 

ACE-Neuro is delivered both online and in-person and is available across Alberta (Calgary and Edmonton).

Clinical Trials Registration: NCT04831190

This province-wide program aims to enhance the well-being of individuals affected by brain cancer through tailored exercise oncology programming.
