Strength for Life, whose goal is to improve quality of life, is a community exercise program where persons with a cancer diagnosis and survivors participate in classes during and after treatment. The exercises are designed to help combat treatment-related fatigue, decrease incidents of depression, relieve nausea and reduce anxiety in order to restore balance after a life-changing diagnosis.
Debbie Hughes will conduct the class. Hughes, a fitness and nutrition specialist, holds an ACE certification in personal training, is a certified cancer exercise specialist, a certified reiki practitioner, and received certification as a holistic health coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
In addition to providing information about Strength for Life, Hughes will guide participants in life-enhancing exercises and help improve functional activities. Everyone should wear comfortable clothing.
