Stress Buster Zwift Rides for Cancer Survivors and #StopCancer Advocates
July 13, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm PDT
Looking to relieve stress and maintain a healthy exercise routine? Join us for stress-free, easy, 30-minute group cycling rides on Zwift! Our Zwift rides will be lead by CJF Founder, Robert Hess, and will take you on a virtual scenic route. As you ride, you’ll be able to chat with fellow cancer survivors and #StopCancer advocates, and get a healthy dose of exercise!
Exercise is one of the best ways to prevent cancer, and a feeling of community can greatly mitigate the stress associated with being a cancer survivor or caregiver. If you are familiar with Zwift and want to attend a Stress Buster ride, add “Robert Hess” on Zwift and he’ll send you an invitation to the Zwift Meet-up(s) of your choice. Use the blue contact form on this page (located on the bottom right) to RSVP with which ride(s) you would like to attend. Please be sure to log-into Zwift and go to the meet-up location, five minutes before the meet-up start time.
Our Stress Buster Zwift Rides are every Mondays & Wednesdays from 4:30pm to 5:00pm, Fridays from 6:00am to 6:30am, and Saturdays from 7:30am – 8:00am. If you are unfamiliar with Zwift, looking to learn more about Zwift, or want to see what equipment you need for Zwift – check out our “Beating Cancer with Zwift” start-up guide! We’ve researched the most efficient and cost-effective ways to get anyone started on Zwift.
We hope to see you virtually for a Stress Buster Zwift Ride soon! Be well. Stay Safe!
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.
