Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you through your journey.
All new clients are required to have an initial assessment with a Back on Track Fitness Cancer Exercise Specialist before beginning their exercise rehabilitation program. The 75-minute initial assessment involves the following:
Comprehensive medical screening and cancer history
Biometric and Anthropometric data (E.g. blood pressure, body fat %)
Range of Motion Testing
Functional Movement Screening
Physical Function Testing (E.g. balance, strength, muscular endurance)
Cardiovascular Fitness Test (sub-maximal)
Once your tests are completed a treatment plan will then be designed based on your goals, training needs, testing results and any other individual requirements you may have. All of our exercise prescription and treatment plans are based upon the most current research and evidence for your specific cancer type and are tailored specifically to your needs, regardless of your starting point.
Our cancer recovery one-on-one training is an hour long hands on session with a Cancer Exercise Specialist. Exercise programs for sessions are based off an individuals testing results and goals completed in the initial assessment. This is perfect for someone who struggles to understand the proper movement and feeling of an exercise or is looking to learn what exercises are safe for their specific situation.
Note: If looking to join a group class, it is highly recommended to complete a few one on one sessions first to get a thorough understanding of your individualized program.
Cancer Recovery Group Classes
Just like the one on one sessions, group classes focus on an individual's personal needs discussed in initial assessment. All classes are lead by a Cancer Exercise Specialist who oversees participants performing their individualized exercise programs. This class is less hands on with the Trainer, however, a sense of camaraderie can be created in group classes as all participants have a similar experiences.
There is a maximum of six (6) participants for each class
