Many more women are surviving breast cancer today than ever before and they are encouraged to seek out fitness programmes to assist in recovery and provide the strength and endurance needed to resume an active lifestyle.
This workshop, developed by the Merrithew Health and Fitness™ team, discusses various types of treatments including surgeries and reconstruction and exercise requirements for each. The programme includes Mat-based exercises focusing on range of motion for the entire shoulder girdle, establishing mobility, restoring posture, ensuring proper biomechanics and developing core and peripheral strength to address muscular imbalances. Exercises incorporate hand-held Toning Balls™ and a small Foam Cushion to work on low-load strength and endurance.
