Cancer Hates a Healthy Body – So, Let’s Just Do IT®
We all know Nike’s famous slogan to get off the couch and do something. That slogan is especially appropriate for cancer survivors because diet and exercise are the two key factors that every cancer survivor controls.
Cancer hates a fit body because a fit body has an active immune system that works 24 x 7 to keep cancer cells from developing and spreading.
Walking is the easiest and least expensive exercise program you can find. All you need to do is to put on your most comfortable shoes – other than those cushy slippers – and head out the door.
It’s always easier to walk with someone else. So, we’re creating walking events where cancer survivors can meet, walk, and inspire each other.
It seems that every health commercial you see on television shows someone bicycling. And for good reason. Almost all of us learned to bicycle at an early age. Bicycling is easy, pretty inexpensive [we’ll show you how in another post], and a great way to see some scenery as you get in those exercise minutes.
Virtually every community has a local bicycle shop that would love to connect you with a local bicycle club that will be delighted to welcome you aboard and get you started.
Health officials are encouraging staying in during the early COVID-19 period (we are writing this in early May 2020) so we are creating a weekly program of indoor cycling using the Zwift indoor cycling app. Please check our event schedule for our weekly ride.
