Better exercise, for better recovery from cancer. What kind of exercise should you do? How much? How often? The answers to these questions are different for every cancer patient and survivor and that's why the Wilmot Cancer Institute developed the ReNEW program.
||Exercise programs are based on the latest research involving cancer patients and survivors.
||Our recommendations take into account your age, goals, fitness level and cancer-related needs.
||We provide exercise professionals who are certified by the American College of Sports Medicine and experienced in working with cancer patients.
||We work closely with you to assess your needs, answer your questions, and teach you exercise techniques.
||Our exercise programs can be done at the Pluta Integrative Oncology & Wellness Center, at home, at a community fitness center, by yourself, or with others.
