Exercise

Benefits of exercise for cancer survivors:

  • Reduces the risk of lymphedema
  • Improves range of motion
  • Improves cardiovascular endurance
  • Increases strength and lean body mass
  • Reduces the risk of osteoporosis
  • Improves self-image
  • Reduces many of the side effects of hormone therapy and chemotherapy

Studies have shown that choosing a healthy lifestyle exceeds many conventional chemotherapy and hormonal therapy
drugs, yet few patients know of the data or have the ability to make such lifestyle changes.

Our free Exercise programs are offered in ten locations in San Antonio, each location offers a variety of classes.

Some sites are temporarily closed and will be opening back up again very soon. STAY TUNED.
