Stephen was diagnosed with lung cancer five years ago and he makes his move to give him a better quality of life

We asked Stephen…

What motivates you to move more?
Moving more gives me a better quality of life.

How does it make you feel when you are physically active?
It makes me more alert and more motivated.

What is your favourite way to be active?
I prefer cardio workouts due to my condition.

What do you feel the benefits of being physically active are to you?
I have always kept pretty fit, which I’m convinced is the reason I’m still here today, especially as I was diagnosed five years ago with lung cancer. It’s so important to meet people and be socially active as well as physically active. Exercise has always been a part of my life and I hope it always will be.

And I’m a big believer that it’s never too late to start!
