Move Beyond Cancer
Have fun and feel empowered while working to improve treatment outcomes, prevent recurrence, and rebuild after a cancer diagnosis in a supportive group of fellow survivors.
Our Move Beyond Cancer program combines a
gentle progression through functional exercises and an uplifting environment to empower those in the cancer community to reclaim their health, happiness, and drive.
Whether participants are currently undergoing treatment, have just completed treatment, or completed treatment years ago, this program is designed to help them safely
engage in exercise and move beyond cancer.
With guidance from our
specially trained, compassionate instructors, survivors can safely reconnect with their bodies and regain strength, energy, and joy alongside others who have experienced a similar journey.
The effects of cancer can impact physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Our classes help participants to:
- 1) Build strength and endurance to battle the fatigue associated with cancer
- 2) Regain the range of motion lost as a result of surgery and radiation
- 3) Decrease the intensity of neuropathy for better grip and balance
- 4) Improve cognitive function to combat chemo brain
- 5) Boost mood to battle depression and anxiety
- 6) Track lymphatic changes to detect and manage lymphedema early
Our classes follow fitness guidelines outlined by ACSM and CETI to ensure a safe and effective workout for those affected by cancer. Two specially trained instructors guide a small group of participants through a gentle progression of strength, endurance, and flexibility exercises aimed at addressing the needs of cancer survivors, both during and post treatment. Classes are kept to a maximum of ten participants to ensure that programming can be tailored for each individual.
