- ACRONYMFITstrong
- hypothesisExercise training is a feasible method to improve fitness (peak oxygen uptake), muscle strength and fatigue in children who survived cancer. Feasibility will be studied according to the number of performed training sessions and a structured interview with patients and training about their opioning about the trainign program

- Brief summaryBackground: Fatigue and impaired exercise tolerance are well documented symptoms in cancer survivors and have a detrimental effect on quality of life outcome. Recent findings in adult cancer treatment show beneficial effects of exercise training. Objective of the study: To determine the feasibility of an exercise program in childhood cancer survivors in the primary health care system Study design: A 12 week aerobic & muscle strength training program (2x/week) will be evaluated with immediate exercise testing and evaluation of habitual activities after the training period and this will be compared with a base line level that has been measured at the start of the program. Study population: Fifteen children between 6 -16 yrs of age with after successful treatment for childhood cancer. Intervention: Two times week exercise training (45 minutes) starting with warm up, followed by muscle strength components and aerobic components and ended with a cool down. The participants have to perform home exercise 2 times per week, and at increasing muscle strength/endurance. Primary study parameters/outcome of the study: Compliance and adherence during the program Secondary study parameters/outcome of the study (if applicable): Pre program and post program levels of exercise tolerance, muscle strength and habitual physical activity.
