IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR YOU?

If you are a certified personal fitness trainer or allied health professional, then you’re half way there. If you have compassion for those affected by cancer and wish to support their safe recovery into surviving cancer with more than just survival but with a new found spirit for life, then you’re ready for this course.

This is an Advanced Specialty Certificate course that, upon successful completion, qualifies you to safely and effectively train cancer recovery clients. Some cancer survivors are under the impression that they should remain inactive because it helps with fatigue and speeds recovery – wrong! Exercise during and after cancer surgery and treatments is extremely helpful for one’s physical and mental well-being. Statistically and unfortunately, cancer rates are on the rise at alarming rates. Trainers are often faced with how to effectively help a cancer survivor to maintain their quality of life without putting them at risk for injury. This course will provide you with the tools to improve the quality of a cancer survivor’s life through the right kind of exercise, strengthening and stretching.
