WHAT IS SURVIVOR FITNESS?
“What is Survivor Fitness”
Survivor Fitness is a nonprofit that helps recent cancer survivors regain strength and wellness through personal training and nutritional guidance. The transition to survivorship can be physically challenging and emotionally lonely. Medical teams provide much-needed support during treatment, but after the cancer is gone support is lacking. This is where Survivor Fitness comes in. Read More …

Most survivors are left weak, frail, out of shape and clueless about where or how to begin the restoration process. Survivor Fitness provides a safe and welcoming environment for survivors to regain their physical health and rebuild hope in their lives after cancer. Read More …

Support the Mission
Surviving cancer isn’t the end of the story. It’s only the beginning. Most cancer patients undergo numerous treatments and doctor’s appointments, leaving them with much medical debt and little income to spare. Because of this most survivors don’t seek out the necessary treatments to fully recover. Survivor Fitness provides the next step for survivors – a place of hope, empowerment and strength.
Knowing the importance of taking the next step in their journey to fully regain their health, Survivor Fitness is committed to providing our program at no costs to the participants. We rely on the support of others to provide our program free of charge to cancer survivors. There are many different ways to give including a one-time donation, becoming a monthly partner, or sponsoring one participant.
