Move Beyond Cancer

Let us help you through your cancer journey!

Exercising during and after treatment offers significant benefits that can improve treatment outcomes, lessen the severity of side-effects, and help to rebuild from the loss of strength, stamina, balance, and mobility that often follows treatment. Our Move Beyond Cancer program combines a gentle progression through functional exercises with an uplifting environment to empower you to reclaim your health, happiness, and drive. Our classes will help you to:

  1. 1) Build strength and endurance to battle the fatigue associated with cancer.
  2. 2) Regain the range of motion and mobility lost as a result of surgery and radiation.
  3. 3) Decrease the intensity of neuropathy for better grip and balance.
  4. 4) Improve cognitive funtion to combat "chemo brain."
  5. 5) Boost mood to battle depression and anxiety.
  6. 6) Track lymphatic changes to detect lymphedema early

Team up with our specially trained instructors for a healthy dose of fun and fitness in a supportive and uplifting environment. Work with professionals that understand the physical, mental, and emotional impact of cancer and can effectively and safely help you to move beyond cancer. Gain strength, stamina, flexibility, and mental sharpness with workouts that can help you overcome the challenges of life after cancer to get you feeling and functioning better.

Experience and Knowledge

Our programs are backed by the knowledge and experience of Founder and CEO Jessica Tax, who earned her BS in Kinesiology from CSU Sacramento. She has over 15 years of experience in the fitness industry and more than 5 years of experience helping survivors move through treatment and rebuild once treatment is completed. Fueled by a desire to help those affected by cancer and a belief that exercise is medicine, Jessica works diligently to provide a cancer fitness program to help you move beyond cancer.

Personalization

Prior to joining classes, you'll undergo a thorough health and fitness assessment to establish your baseline so our coaches know your strengths and weaknesses. With that information, our coaches are able to build workouts that are designed to focus on the areas of fitness that you need the most. Class sizes are intentionally small so our coaches can give you individualized attention, ensuring you get the most out of each session.

Support and Understanding

Move Beyond Cancer classes are exclusively for those who have been diagnosed with cancer and their caregivers (cargivers are included in your membership). Move forward and rebuild with people who understand the challenges you are facing. Share your experiences and your triumphs with fellow survivors!
