Varying degrees of exercise before, during and after
cancer treatments can help survivors feel better,
live healthier and longer lives.
Getting started in this specialized field of diet, exercise and relaxation techniques requires an understanding of the various cancers, the treatments, medications and the side effects. Not all patients should exercise, but many can and cancer doctors encourage it. As individuals or in groups, fitness and healthcare professionals are the experts to direct cancer therapy programs. Exercise becomes the focus, health (rather than sickness) the goal. It acts as an energizer, can help stabilize weight and improve the patients mood. Fitness professionals can learn how to work with this highly rewarding specialized need group through the Cancer Fit-CARE certification programs.
