Missoula has always had an active community. Active is the key word! Exercise can help fight depression, regain strength, and combat fatigue. Exercise is the best medicine. There is no population that understands this more than cancer patients and survivors.
FIT TO FIGHT is here to help
Medical studies prove that exercise helps minimize the detrimental side-effects of cancer treatment, aiding in the return to a better quality of life. This unique program is based on education, health, and fitness to empower those fighting cancer to understand how to become stronger and maintain strength. FIT TO FIGHT helps cancer survivors re-establish trust in their bodies and return to daily life as productive members of their community.
The FIT TO FIGHT program runs three 8-week sessions per year, twice weekly. The format is a small organized group exercise session, with individual tailoring. Each session consists of stretching, breathing & relaxation, resistive strengthening, and endurance training. Each class of the session was developed by a licensed physical therapist and is led by an exercise physiologist.
Who can participate in the program?
FTF is open to cancer patients and survivors of any age, gender, cancer diagnosis, and stage in the treatment process. A medical release is required from their doctor.
How much does it cost?
The program is free of cost to all participants. Donations go directly to the FIT TO FIGHT program and its participants.
