"Our mission is to help people who have cancer, or who have had cancer, become as healthy as possible through strength training and other physical activity."
Survival2Strength is a program for strength, coordination and mobility.
It is a free 8 week program with no obligations or expectations to purchase membership or training after the 8 weeks are completed. Cost should never be a barrier to the benefits of strength training.
The program: Is individualized but typically a person has two sessions a week, each session is about an hour, with warming up, core and mobility, strength work, and stretching. Cardio is encouraged either in the gym or elsewhere.
Starting the program: Each person has their own starting point and gradually progresses at their own pace. A cancer survivor should not be sore or exhausted from training, as we encourage an active lifestyle outside of the gym.
Sessions are 1:1 for individual guidance. Small group sessions are available upon request, and individualized for the group needs and preferences.
A cancer survivor (anyone who has or ever has had cancer) may be at a higher risk than the general population for cardiac problems, lymphedema, blood clots, osteoporosis, nerve problems, immobility and balance issues as well as other health concerns.
Survivor plans include :
A person who has had cancer may have great difficulty overcoming barriers to fitness and strength training.
(strength training, cardio, flexibility)
Survival2Strength trainers offer individual guidance, in consideration of diagnosis, treatment and the goals of each client.
