Abstract

The number of cancer patients who live more than 5 years after surgery exceeds 53.9% over the period of 1974 and 1990; Treatments for cancer patients are important during the recovery period, as physical pain and cancer fatigue affect cancer patients’ psychological and social functions. Researchers have shown that interval training improves the physical performance in terms of fatigue level, cardiovascular build-up, and hemoglobin concentration, the feelings of control, independence, self-esteem, and social relationship during cancer rehabilitation and chemotherapy periods. The lack of proper individual motivation levels and the difficulty in following given interval training protocols results in patients stopping interval training sessions before reaching proper exhaustion levels.
