Free Strength Training For Cancer Survivors

Survival2Strength is a program for strength, coordination and mobility.

8 Week Course

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.

Flexible Times

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.

No Experience Required

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.

Individual or Small Groups

Sessions are 1:1 for individual guidance.  Small group sessions are available upon request, and individualized for the group needs and preferences.

Importance of Physical Activity

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.

Every cancer survivor needs a survivor plan.

Survivor plans include :

  • Diagnosis
  • Previous Treatments
  • Current Treatments
  • Risk Factors Of Diagnosis
  • Side Effects Of Treatments
  • Follow-up Screening and Wellness Schedule

A person who has had cancer may have great difficulty overcoming barriers to fitness and strength training.

  • Denser bones
  • More energy

Survival2Strength trainers offer individual guidance, in consideration of diagnosis, treatment and the goals of each client.
