The PJCC’s Pink Ribbon Program provides personal training specifically designed to enhance recovery for breast cancer patients.
This innovative program includes:
These individual post-operative Personal Training sessions are open to all breast cancer survivors whether surgery was eight weeks or 20 years ago.
The program is tailored to each woman’s health, fitness, and goals. One participant reported that when she entered the program she was unable to open a carton of milk or lift her arms over her head to put a shirt on. Upon completing the program she was able to perform these essential tasks of daily living. Another woman reported that Pink Ribbon “made me feel healthy rather than sick.” Trainers provide emotional support and encouragement on an individual basis, as well as evidence-based individual fitness programs.
The PJCC is the only facility on the Peninsula to offer this innovative program.
Contact Vicki McGrath, Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist, at the PJCC today and learn how The Pink Ribbon Program can help you on your road to recovery.
