Discover a fun fitness alternative after a breast cancer diagnosis
Managing health and fitness can be difficult after a breast cancer diagnosis. There is a common belief that upper body exercise can result in chronic and debilitating conditions, specifically lymphedema. Coupled with the side effects of cancer treatments and long term medications, this can leave many people feeling disheartened and struggling to maintain a regular effective routine, at a time when exercise is more important than ever.

There are lots of ways a person previously diagnosed with breast cancer can take control of their fitness and get their health back on track, such as general exercising, walking or running, healthy eating, dancing and more (like in our Classic Challenge).
