Nutrition, Exercise and Complementary Therapies for Cancer


Pete Newman

Nutrition, exercise and complementary therapies for cancer.

Welcome! I have created this website for you – whether you have been diagnosed with cancer, or if someone you care about has. My purpose is to help you find the answers that you are looking for.

I have been on a four year epic cancer adventure. Being a personal trainer and nutritionist helped me get started, and complementary medicine was a natural fit. However the biggest lesson has been that you can have control of your cancer, and you don’t have to be a victim. It is simply a matter of understanding. I’m now fitter, stronger and happier than I have ever been – but I never imagined at diagnosis that I would be grateful for this journey.


A Cancer Diagnosis Is A Total Head Spin.  

I have been there, and as they say, if only I knew then what I know now.

Beating Cancer 101 offers comprehensive knowledge of cancer treatment options, including online support. This will help you get your nutrition right, get into effective, enjoyable exercise, and navigate natural and complementary therapies to find the ones most suitable to you. And it is all based on high quality science. The knowledge base that you need in order to take control of your cancer treatment is packaged into a five session course. The cost of the course is by donation – this keeps this website up and running. The details are on my coaching page. I wish you well on your cancer journey, and I hope that I can make it easier for you!

Preventing Cancer 

Eat, Move & Thrive. The 5 secrets of very healthy people

No doubt prevention is better than cure. Ultimately most cancers are the product of diet and lifestyle. Genetics are an underlying issue only about 5% of the time.

If you get your diet right you will dramatically reduce your chances of getting cancer. Add in a dose of activity and it is unlikely that you will be one of the 95%.

In a concise, clear and no-nonsense way I explain how you can create a healthy diet for yourself, how to get moving – and how to actually enjoy it!

Some of my Past Testimonials


Simon Swanson

Suffice to say that I was both very impressed with, and very grateful, to Peter.

My knee, which had had a number of operations, was causing me severe pain and a generally “poor quality of life”. I had seen an orthopaedic surgeon who advised I needed a knee replacement but was too young to have one.

After this I consulted Peter who devised a programme of exercises that over a period of six months transformed my knee from something that was painful to a strong knee that enabled me to live life “normally”. Suffice to say that I was both very impressed with, and very grateful, to Peter.

He’s easily the best trainer I’ve had

I work as a film director and designer and I’m also a busy mother. With long punishing hours (sometimes 18 hour days) and an erratic schedule it’s never easy to fit in to a training schedule. Peter made it very easy for me with a flexible schedule. His extensive and holistic knowledge of the body, muscular system, nutrition and what exercise program generates the best results for your body type is a huge plus – he really gets results. And his knowledge is grounded in many years of experience. I did various routines with Peter, HIIT (High intensity interval training), Anaerobic and aerobic sessions, resistance training and lots of jumping. Peter tailored my workouts to what I wanted to achieve, my body type and my energy level for each session. It was perfect for me. I was toned and super fit very quickly and maintained my fitness – even at times when I could only do one session a week. If you want the best I urge you to book in for a block of sessions. You’ll feel great and be doing your health a big favour. He’s easily the best trainer I’ve had.

He strengthened my weaknesses and concentrated on my core.

I had a brilliant year with Pete! At first I was offended when my wife bought me personal training sessions for Xmas last year, but they transformed my life!

I turned 30 a few years ago, I had a reconstructed knee due to an ACL injury, and I seemed to be recovering from a new injury continually…but despite all this, I refused to come to terms with my own morbidity! Pete re-instilled that belief, but more importantly he reinvigorated my body…he strengthened my weaknesses and concentrated on my core. My weekly sessions were filled with plenty of pain negated by a barrel of laughs and philosophical insights into the world!

All I can say is our great loss is another’s amazing gain.

I have been training with Pete for the last 2 years. I was incredibly delighted to find someone who used such a different approach. Pete believes in training the core and a lot of the time uses your own weight. He also trained me in lots of balance techniques.

He informed me a lot about nutrition and the latest studies in training. If I had a slight injury he could always work around it. I used to tell my friends that I had found the best personal trainer ever. I was devastated when he told me he was leaving to move to Melbourne. However he was concerned enough to make sure I knew all my programs with him and how to vary them so the body doesn’t get used to it.

I also joined many of his classes that were demanding but so effective.

I’m sure Pete will be sorely missed as he is so passionate about training and keeping fit. All I can say is our great loss is another’s amazing gain.
