Exercise and Education Program for Individuals Diagnosed or Recovering from Cancer
At Cooper, we have proven exercise and lifestyle modification play an important role in disease management. Cancer can affect your mental and physical health and wellness. Cooper® Tracks Cancer provides a safe space for you to get back into, or start, exercising to help you best manage your day-to-day life.
Research shows exercise is not only safe and possible during cancer treatment, but it also improves physical function and quality of life. Benefits of a moderate-intensity exercise routine can include*:
- Elevated mood and self-esteem
- Less depression and anxiety
- Improved balance and strength
- Better endurance
- Decreased symptoms of fatigue, a common side effect of cancer and cancer treatment
