Title
Exercise in Radiation Therapy (EXERT)
Objective
The primary aim is to determine the acceptability, feasibility, and safety of an exercise intervention among cancer patients receiving radiation therapy.

The secondary aim is to compare changes in fatigue, pain, nausea, vomiting, arthralgias, and physical functioning tests between the beginning and end of radiation therapy. We will also collect data on the initial radiation therapy prescription and whether there are dose alterations.

The third aim is to collect qualitative data regarding cancer clinician perspectives regarding the burden of the study, the effects of exercise to their patients, and the value of the study.
