Cancer is one of the toughest fights anyone will ever have to face. Thanks to research and treatment advances there are over 14 million cancer survivors living in the United States today. Cancer care during and after treatment is transforming within the health care community. Recent studies and the resulting evidence recognize the need and value of rehabilitation for cancer survivors. Fitness is now an essential component of cancer recovery. Survivors are advised to get moving, exercise, eat healthy and stay fit. NCCF is here to help.
The North County San Diego area offers a variety of small gyms, fitness studios and large training facilities. Cancer is not one size fits all and neither is cancer fitness training. Whether you’re interested in yoga, pilates, swimming, weight training, warm water therapy pool, qigong, aquatics classes, tai chi or simply walking a track – we’ve discovered there is something for everyone.
A NCCF volunteer will meet with you to learn your history, treatment, needs, and wants. Once completed, a detailed assessment and training consultation by our physical therapist and/or personal trainer to develop your individualized fitness plan will follow. Based on these results, your oncologist’s approval (NCCF will provide form), and your personal wishes, NCCF will direct, guide and support you every step of the way in attaining and sustaining your fitness goals.
Cancer doesn’t just affect the person who is diagnosed. It also affects the lives of loved ones. Change your life and that of your family today. Make a decision by taking an active role in your recovery by joining the NCCF Cancer Fitness Program. We will guide you step-by-step in your personal program while offering valuable support, education and referral resources along the way. NCCF wants you to feel better, get stronger and lessen the chance of recurrence. Many of us involved in NCCF have been where you are now. Nobody can speak about cancer better than those who have been there.
