I know many of you reading this think of me as a n occasionally witty, sometimes intelligent trainer who can tell the difference between varus and valgus stress, plus I can look awesome while doing power cleans. Not many know that I actually specialized in cancer research and rehabilitation in the last year of my undergraduate degree. I was the only undergrad to take a graduate level course in Exercise Oncology, and was able to work in a research facility that was essentially one big private training studio specifically for people recovering from and going through cancer treatments. I’ve also trained roughly 50 cancer recovery clients since then, as well as consulted with a few organizations around the world on exercise and cancer recovery, so this is a very specific niche of information I can offer.
Here’s the kicker: roughly one third of all the population will develop cancer at some point in their lifetimes. If it’s not you, it will probably be someone you know. Now while cancer is commonly a disease of the elderly, younger and younger people are becoming ill with these terrible afflictions, possibly due to lifestyle or pollution factors, we’ll never know. The good news is that survival rates are higher than they have ever been, and now there are literally thousands of people who have survived cancer walking around with a second chance at life, and want to do better to take care of themselves while they have a chance. Many will decide to start working out, and as trainers, we’ll need to know what to do with them.
Imagine if you had cancer, or if your spouse or sibling or parent developed it. Exercise has been shown time and again to not only improve the health of people without cancer, but every dimension of health in people recovering from and receiving treatment for various types of cancer, and it even helps the person tolerate their treatments better than average. You would want to have any resource possible to help understand what to do and what to avoid through this trying time, which is why I developed Exercise and Cancer: The Ultimate Training Guide for Survivors.
This package contains two components: one for the fitness professional looking to give their clients the best possible methods for improving their health, and another written specifically for people without any fitness or science background, which explains what cancer is and what exercise can do for them. These two elements combined make this a great resource for everyone, not just the trainer. Imagine being able to give your clients a copy of the non-trainer presentation to watch on their own and having them come away knowing more about their disease and what they can do about it than they could ever hope to on their own. Your value to them goes way up, and their confidence in your abilities to help them goes up as well.
