Our Program

FIT TO FIGHT is an exercise based cancer support program that runs three 8-week sessions per year. We meet twice per week during the sessions at PEAK Health and Wellness, 5000 Blue Mountain Road. The small organized group exercise sessions include individual tailoring. Each session consists of stretching, breathing & relaxation, resistive strengthening, and endurance training. Sessions are designed and supervised by a physical therapist.

A physical therapist directly oversees the program and is available to all participants for questions or advice. This program does not replace the important individual skilled physical therapist that many oncology patients may need initially.

“Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t” -Rikki Rogers The 2015 fall session is off to a great start! Participants have completed pretesting, and are now participating in classes twice a week at the Blue Mountain Peak with help from volunteers. Class topics include: foam rolling, neuropathy, balance, therapy bands, exercise balls, strength, and cardio. Over the eight week session, participants will become confident and comfortable in continuing their health and fitness journey. Although this session has already begun, there are always more opportunities to get involved with Fit to Fight. If you would like to be a participant, there is both a winter and spring session. If you are interested in volunteering, there will be community events throughout the year and a Peak Triathlon in the spring to get involved in!
