Exercise is Medicine for Cancer Survivors

More and more research studies have shown that regular exercise is not only safe during and after cancer treatment, but also brings significant benefits to cancer survivors.

These benefits of exercise can help to:

  • Manage nausea

  • Manage pain

  • Improve sleeping patterns

  • Reduce bone mineral density loss & maintain muscle mass

  • Improve metabolism & physical function

  • Improve overall fitness

  • Improve quality of life

This new exercise group is being established for people who have been diagnosed with Stage I-IV cancer within the past two years and who are undergoing or have completed cancer treatment. The purpose of the program is to introduce exercise in a safe and supportive environment and to empower individuals to manage their own physical activity and wellness.

 

All training sessions will be designed and supervised by Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists. Exercise prescriptions will be adjusted according to the fitness and functional capacity of each individual. Each participant must obtain medical clearance before the training starts. The purpose of the program is to introduce exercise in a safe and supportive environment and to empower individuals to manage their own physical activity and wellness.
