Fit for Survival or the Spirit of Survival comprehensive wellness program
Sarah Giovagnoli, Spirit of Survival coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the American College of Sports Medicine recommend 150 minutes per week, or 30 minutes five times per week, of moderate-intensity exercise, or 75 minutes per week of vigorous-intensity exercise to decrease the recurrence risk of cancer, and to improve overall cancer survival.
Shaw's exercise physiologists conduct fitness assessments and develop customized exercise programs that meet each individual's needs and goals to get "Fit for Survival." Participants in the program are instructed in aerobic conditioning, strength training, balance, and flexibility to increase fitness and overall well-being. The Fit for Survival gym sees an average of 106 patient visits per month for both individualized exercise and group "boot camps." In addition, the program offers yoga, Pilates, and tai chi, as well as group hikes, snowshoes and ski days in Eagle & Summit Counties.
The Fit for Survival program is made possible by the generosity of participants and donors of Pink Vail.
