New year kicks off cancer survivor class


An exercise and educational program for cancer survivors helps participants start the new year in the right way live with the goal of living healthy beyond cancer. The first class, held at Provision Health and Performance is next Thursday, Jan. 11.

This four- week, twice weekly program, consists of stretching, strengthening, and cardio-vascular conditioning exercises targeted at the needs of men and women following recovery from cancer treatments—and who are ready to take the next step toward better health.

Each session will include presentations on a variety of topics of interest to cancer survivors, including the benefits of physical activity, how to reduce the risk of lymphedema, hydration, nutrition, foam rolling, and relaxation and restoration. A medical release from your physician is recommended prior to beginning this exercise program. This program will give men and women various tools to make their post-cancer lives healthier and vibrant.
