The diagnosis of cancer can cause a certain amount of anxiety but it doesn’t have to diminish your quality-of-life or be a death sentence. I use my knowledge in exercise prescription, nutrition and behavioral change to design and guide you through a program that meets your specific cancer needs. This will include resistance training, flexibility, aerobic exercise and core training. Your needs assessment will include the type of cancer, upper and lower body lymphedema prevention and management, cancer pain and fatigue, posture, level of mobility (range of motion) and stage of treatment.
Your individualized program will begin at a low intensity and increase over time to a moderate level as tolerated. Both of these levels will provide you with a slight increase in energy and vigor, post-workout. In addition to improving your overall fitness level, you should expect to see an increase in functionality, body image and self-confidence.
