Cancer is one of the toughest fights anyone can face. Thanks to research and treatment advances, there are over 14 million cancer survivors living in the United States today. Cancer care, both 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.
North County San Diego offers a variety of small gyms, fitness studios, and large training facilities. Cancer is not one size fits all. 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 have discovered there is something for everyone.
Once you fill out the online Consultation Intake form on the NCCF website, an NCCF mentor will meet with you to learn your history, treatment, needs, and wants. The next step is a detailed assessment and training consultation by our cancer-certified fitness trainer and/or physical therapist to develop your individualized fitness plan. Based on these results, your health care provider’s approval (NCCF will provide form), and your personal preferences, NCCF will direct, guide, and support you every step of the way in attaining and sustaining your fitness goals.
