Fit Cancer

Fitness Therapy for Cancer Program (Fit Cancer) is a supportive group-based exercise program designed for cancer survivors at any phase of the cancer journey, including those who have become de-conditioned or chronically fatigued from the treatment process.

Exercise is a critical part of maintaining one's health throughout the cancer journey. Research has shown that cancer patients and survivors who are physically active have greater overall survival rates and quality of life. The Fit Cancer program is uniquely tailored to the needs of each cancer survivor to combat the deleterious side effects of treatment and to empower members to engage in meaningful, active lifestyles.

Participants can expect to see many benefits including:

  • Improved strength
  • Enhanced balance and coordination
  • Reduced fatigue
  • Stress relief
  • Increased energy levels
  • Gaining knowledge and skills to exercise safely and independently
  • Meeting other survivors in a supportive exercise environment
