You are not alone.
At Stronger Thru Cancer we believe we are stronger together. We know we benefit from the encouragement and support of other cancer fighters on this unwelcome journey. We feel the positive effects of regular exercise and mindfulness activities. And we motivate each other to stay active and live the best life we can with cancer and beyond.
Stronger Thru Cancer is a nationally accessible on-line exercise and wellness program for people with cancer.
Participate in live Zoom classes or access our on-demand video library of 300+ classes, all of which help build strength, stamina, and/or flexibility, as well as combat cancer-related anxiety and stress. Classes are designed with cancer side-effects in mind by a Cancer Fitness Instructor and Cancer Exercise Specialist. Whether you are actively fighting cancer, living with metastatic cancer, or in recovery, dealing with your diagnosis requires self-care – and now you can access it from anywhere.
Types of Classes
Strength classes are designed to help build back your strength. Using standard strength training movements, some light weights, and our own will, we will get stronger, together. Seated and standing classes are offered to match your capabilities.
*Classes may increase in difficulty over time.
Gain stability and strength to protect yourself from the injuries of a fall. You may use a wall and chair to support yourself in a variety of key balance practices.
Resistance classes use your own body resistance to make simple movements have more impact. When done repeatedly, the results will be surprising.
Yoga classes are offered with two users in mind: Gentle yoga and traditional yoga are for those who have experience with yoga or have no difficulty getting up and down from the floor. Chair yoga is offered for those who enjoy the benefits of yoga from the safety of a chair.
*A yoga mat is required for both Gentle and Traditional Yoga only
