Safe Exercise for Cancer Survivors
I have been teaching fitness for 14 years. I love to see people much younger than me really sweat in my classes. However, my focus has changed since I was diagnosed with cancer. My experience made me realize that there should be more trainers who can understand their clients’ physical challenges and give them appropriate exercises to continue their activities safely and effectively.
I believe that exercise is medicine. I have seen so many people get stronger and healthier by taking my classes and programs.
I offer personalized fitness programs to address all levels and conditions. You tell me your needs and we can then decide what I can offer you either one on one training or in the group.
For Cancer survivors 癌サバイバーのために
Many cancer patients and survivors think that rest will decrease their fatigue and speed their recovery. In fact, inactivity can have negative effects, emotionally and physically, and can lead to physical problems such as muscle wasting, bone loss, and decline in heart and lung function.
Through exercise, survivors build muscle strength, increase flexibility and endurance, and improve their capacity to perform activities of daily living, from work to play. Exercise has been shown to reduce their fatigue and improve physical function, strength, flexibility, musculoskeletal symptoms and mental health. Improvements will also be seen in blood pressure, weight, and waist circumference.
Breast cancer survivors’ sessions will include special exercises for lymphedema patients, and education about how to prevent and manage lymphedema.

As a certified Cancer Exercise Trainer, I can carefully monitor your side effects and give you appropriate exercises so that you can maintain your strength and continue to go through treatments. Being active is very important for survivors who are still in treatment, but it is very important to exercise under a specialist’s guidance.
