Our invitation to you
Mike Arteaga’s Health and Fitness Centers would like to invite you to be our guest for 3 months of exercise and wellness in our Cancer Well-Fit Program. This free 3 month program is specifically designed to address the special needs of people who are going through or have just finished the rigors of various cancer treatments.
Strengthening mind, body, and spirit
During this phase of your life, we would like to offer you the opportunity to gain strength of body, mind and spirit. Treatment takes a toll on your body and challenges your spirit. Through regular exercise and the supportive environment of our fitness center, we will provide you with the tools necessary for you to begin feeling better and stronger.
Investing in Your Future
Our club has never been interested in fads and fake fixes. We’re interested in making regular exercise a permanent part of your life. Many people with cancer have used Well-Fit memberships as springboards to a healthier life style, through a life-long commitments to exercise – a choice we hope you’ll make with us.
Exercise after breast cancer
There are so many benefits: improving your strength, increasing your flexibility, sleeping better and just feeling better.
If you have received or are receiving treatment for breast cancer, lymphedema may be a concern. In 2011, some of our staff went through a workshop with Cathy Bryan, certified cancer and exercise trainer, to learn how to help members safely do weight training exercises following breast cancer treatment, specifically to help avoid lymphedema.
Cathy Bryan was the lead trainer on a medical study called the PAL Trial (Physical Activity and Lymphedema). The study found that weight training did not increase the risk of lymphedema in women who had lymph node dissection as part of their breast cancer treatment.
