everyBODY can is a focused lifestyle challenge that creates sustainable change
Saint Mary’s Fitness Center has announced the launch of
everyBODY can, a cancer wellness challenge. This eight-week program was developed by
the Fitness Center’s cancer wellness team, made up of Cancer Exercise
Specialists, and led by a Safety and Medical Exercise Supervisor. This
all-encompassing program will focus on overall wellness for cancer survivors.
everyBODY can is designed to help cancer survivors find balance in life as it pertains
to exercise, nutrition, sleep, hydration, and self-care through guidance
and support from our team of experts. All participants receive tools for
success, weekly workouts, and will earn points for the different categories
of wellness. The grand prize winner will receive a spa day and shopping spree.
“We are excited to launch this program, and cannot wait to see the end results,”
explains Cassie Goodman, medical exercise supervisor. “Our hope
is that this challenge will help cancer survivors in our community focus
on a healthy, well-rounded lifestyle that they can maintain for the duration
of their lives.”
“The Saint Mary's Rehab program has helped me with my recovery,”
explains a participant of the regularly running Cancer Rehabilitation
Program. “The support I get from the survivors in the program is
priceless. I love all of the trainers, very caring and helpful.”
The program will begin Feb. 13 and run through April 7. Pricing for the
eight-week program is $45 for current Saint Mary’s Fitness Center
members, and $179 for non-members (price includes Fitness Center membership
for the eight-week program in addition to the program itself). Scholarships
for qualifying applicants will be available through Pinocchio’s
Moms on the Run for those diagnosed with female-type cancers.
everyBODY can is for all cancer survivors in the Reno/Sparks area, in any phase of their
treatment. To learn more and sign up, call 775-770-7874 or email Cgoodman2@primehealthcare.com.
