Nicole Gleason and Jared Scorsone are both part of the training team at BFitBWell, a cancer exercise program offered by the University of Colorado Cancer Center. They detail how the program works and how it improves strength, stamina, and quality of life for cancer patients during and shortly after treatment. In addition, they describe the mental and emotional benefits that exercise can have, including having a sense of control over one’s own health.
When asked where someone newer to exercise should start, Nicole and Jared advise, “Start small. Something is better than nothing, even if it’s just walking for a couple of minutes. Find something you enjoy. Consistency is key.”
