Back on Track Fitness, “moving beyond cancer”
Back on track fitness was initially developed over 10 years ago. I was inspired by a very brave, and courageous lady who literally pushed me into this field. Barb Peeling fought a very long battle with recurrent breast cancer and while she was undergoing her treatment she would nag me that there were no programs for exercise and cancer. She was right, because at that time people were still being told to go home and rest while undergoing treatment! As a result, the early days of the program, were very slow, even though we had the expertise and support of many of the incredible pioneers for promoting exercise through treatment. However,
We have come a long way!!!
Today, there are numerous ongoing studies and trials supporting the overwhelming benefits of exercise and movement throughout all stages of cancer diagnoses. In addition there are more and more certifications for practitioners to specialize in cancer recovery. I am happy to say that our program is involved in many diverse programs of cancer recovery and has great aspirations of developing a very large survivorship network!
I am so thankful to Barb for pushing me and everyday I am inspired by my work! The strength, the courage, the willingness, and the perseverance, of our clients to survive and heal through these treatments makes me so passionate to continue developing and expanding our programs!
We, at back on track fitness, are very excited to meet you and can’t wait to help guide you towards your greatest potential as you get, back on track!
