Encore – Parkes, NSW

October 16 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Encore is a free exercise program designed specifically for women who have experienced mastectomy, lumpectomy or breast reconstruction surgery. The program runs for two hours a week over eight weeks.

I have learnt things about breast cancer which I didn’t know before and learnt about resources I can access. Everyone has been so nice and friendly, and it’s been a wonderful thing to be a part of – big thanks!

Based around land and hydrotherapy pool exercises, it is safe, fun and therapeutic. Encore can help you strengthen and tone your arms, shoulders and chest, regain mobility, and improve your general fitness. Encore is a proven program with, on average:

  • 80% of participants demonstrating increased strength
  • 95% of participants demonstrating increased aerobic endurance
  • 70% of participants demonstrating improvements in flexibility

Guest speakers around health and wellbeing are part of this relaxed, positive and fun program which also focuses on peer support.
