The UW WELL-FIT 12 week program focuses on restoring and improving the physiological well-being of individuals on chemotherapy, radiation or hormonal therapy treatment.

The effects of cancer treatment are wide ranging and individualized.  Trained exercise specialists specialists take into account medical history and health status when developing individualized exercise programs aimed at improving cardiovascular function, muscular strength and endurance as well as range of motion that may have been lost as a result of treatment.

The specialized program provides safe, private, small group one hour exercise sessions twice a week over the 12 week period. Appropriate for everyone regardless of fitness level, UW WELL-FIT tailors each program to the individual's specific health needs.
