Summary Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in older men worldwide. Advancements in diagnosis and treatment have resulted in 5-year relative survival rates approaching 100%. Therefore, men diagnosed with prostate cancer are now living longer, but treatment-induced adverse effects are regularly reported and may result in various comorbidities that may impair quality of life. Exercise training has been suggested as an intervention to ameliorate these adverse effects and improve multiple aspects of health. Despite the lack of specific guidelines, exercise training can play a critical role following the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.
