Cancer Exercise: What is it?

The Cancer Exercise Specialist® Advanced Qualification was developed for health and fitness professionals seeking to attain a higher level of mastery and work with cancer patients during and after cancer surgery and treatment and into survivorship. As a CES, we train for a complete understanding of the entire cancer process from diagnosis and treatment to reconstruction and survivorship. Our unique and individualized programming will help to improve the patient’s ability to cope with the mental and physical stress following cancer diagnosis and treatment.

 

A Cancer Exercise Specialist (CES) works with you to promote health outcomes and overall quality of life. A CES has the qualifications to work in conjunction with your primary care physician or specialist depending on what outcomes that are desired. Our comprehensive program goes over the following:

- Range of Motion/Mobility

- Lymphedema Management and Drainage Exercises

- Corrective Exercise - Muscle Imbalances

- Balance and Fall Prevention

- Minimizing treatment side-effects and preventing co-morbidities such as osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease, lymphedema, and future cancers

- Losing body fat/increasing lean muscle mass

- Stress Management and Self Care

Medical Exercise: When would I need it?

A CES is most useful when your physician or care provider has been encouraging you to begin an exercise program, but you may not have the exercise background to know how to safely begin one.  We have a conservative approach when working with medical patients with gradual improvements and goals. Whether it's your first time stepping into a gym, or you're coming back months after finishing your treatment, we are committed to delivering a safe, challenging program that fits you exactly where you are in your current fitness.
