Beating Cancer is Just the Beginning of The Story

Survivor Fitness is a nonprofit that helps cancer survivors find hope and healing after treatment.

What is Survivor Fitness?

Every year, thousands of people are diagnosed with cancer. But when the treatments are done and the surgeries end, cancer survivors are left with lingering side effects that can last for months or even years. In fact, 65% of cancer survivors experience fatigue, depression, loss of strength, and weight gain or weight loss after treatment.
Cancer survivors need a wellness program that bridges the post-treatment gap and helps them take the important first steps on their journey toward long-term health. Survivor Fitness offers cancer survivors what they need, at no cost to them – helping them kickstart the next chapter of their life through one-on-one personal training, nutritional coaching, and mental health support.

A Program Designed to Change Your Life For the Better.

Survivor Fitness is a community of survivors, medical professionals, fitness trainers, and dietitians who have designed a program that offers individualized support and encouragement for recovery after cancer treatment.

We’ve partnered with affiliate gyms, trainers, dietitians, and mental health professionals to serve cancer survivors across Tennessee and beyond through virtual training opportunities. During the program, survivors work alongside a personal trainer and a registered dietitian to create and implement a customized recovery plan.

Battling Cancer
is Lonely & Hard

Shouldn’t Be.

Going through treatment is painful, draining, and isolating. The recovery journey after treatment shouldn’t be. We’ve had the opportunity to help hundreds of cancer survivors combat the side effects of treatment to improve their quality of life and long-term health.


Training and Nutrition Sessions Offered

You’re not alone on the recovery journey. To date, hundreds of cancer survivors have completed the program to regain their health and wellness.



Cancer doesn’t discriminate by age. Our program was designed to support survivors of every age, diagnosis, and fitness level.
