Clients working out on treadmills and exercise equipment in CCCARE gym.

"Two years after finishing radiation therapy I still look forward to these classes at the 'graduate' level. I have never felt more fit. I even participated in the Run for the Cure!...The support I have received physically and emotionally through this class has been second to none. I am so happy that I dragged myself to that first class, wondering what good this exercise would do me!"

The UW WELL-FIT graduate program, now referred to as STAY-FIT, is an extension of the 12 week START-FIT program for individuals in cancer treatment. Participants in this program may or may not be undergoing treatment and continue with supervised, individualized exercise programs twice weekly in a larger group setting at our facility.

The STAY-FIT ‘graduate program' evolved after many of the participants had completed the original program and wanted to continue with exercise in the same type of supportive environment that they experienced in START-FIT. The STAY-FIT program is currently fee-for-service.

For participants who would like some continued exercise guidance but prefer to exercise at home or at their own gym, we also offer a STAY-FIT AT HOME option. This includes an individualized exercise program, 30 minute one-on-one training session and email follow ups to check on progress. STAY-FIT AT HOME is also fee-for-service and can be discussed with our Fitness staff after completing the START-FIT program.
