Cancer Wellness at Club Fit
Designed to meet the special needs of persons undergoing and recovering from cancer treatment.
According to The American Cancer Society, there are many reasons for being physically active during cancer treatment, but each person’s exercise program should be based on what’s safe and what works best for them. It should also be something you like doing. Your exercise plan should take into account any exercise program you already follow, what you can do now, and any physical problems or limitations you may have. For more information, visit their FAQ page on Physical Activity and the Cancer Patient.
At Club Fit, we have a few options:
• We have a personal trainer on staff at our Briarcliff location with additional certification from American Cancer Society and American College of Sports Medicine to provide personal training. Master Trainer Ann Krobath is a fitness professional who utilizes a well-rounded understanding of cancer to develop exercise programs specifically suited for cancer survivors. ACSM/ACS CETs empower cancer survivors to display their significant inner strength by improving their own physical fitness.
