The Various Benefits of Fitness While Going Through Cancer

By Guest Blogger David Haas


Chemotherapy leaves cancer patients feeling extremely fatigued. Additionally, the radiation therapy sessions can hurt healthy tissues, cells and muscles. Because of this, fitness has various benefits for cancer patients.

Studies have linked fitness to better health within cancer patients. Though exercise cannot cure the cancerous cells, patients admit that their exercise routine helps them cope with the treatment and recovery process.

More energy

One major side effect of treatment is fatigue and insomnia. Cancer patients have no energy, yet cannot easily sleep. However, patients who engage in regular physical activity report having more energy, as well as getting quality rest.

The primary reason why physical activity increase energy is because it essentially tears down the various muscle groups, which forces the body to work to rebuild them. This is a natural process that starts during infancy, and once the body recognizes strained or torn muscles, it forces itself to shut down to help rebuild them. This allows patients to sleep. Once the muscles are healed, the blood flow kicks into high gear, thus improving energy levels.

Optimistic mindset

Any form of physical activity can release neurological hormones, called endorphins. These hormones create an effect that is known as "the runner's high." These hormones are known to help people stay positive or have an optimistic outlook on their own perspective and their current situation or environment.

However, most people assume that it is perfectly alright for cancer patients to feel pessimistic or anxious. While they certainly have a right to feel that way, they should also understand that there are benefits to remaining optimistic, whether someone is going through chemotherapy or rare mesothelioma treatment. For example, unrelated studies prove that optimistic people are typically healthier and heal faster than pessimistic people. Among other things, having a positive outlook on their current situation can help cancer patients cope with their condition.

Relieved pain

Chemotherapy and surgery not only leave patients fatigued, they also leave painful and discomforting side effects. However, engaging in regular physical activity can relieve the pain caused by treatment. Experts suggest stretches and aerobic exercises to help alleviate pain symptoms.

Conclusion

Again, exercise is not a substitute for professional treatment, but it is a beneficial aid. This article also explains the specific benefits of cancer per type of cancer.

Expansion 2012

By Coach Ian

As some of you know we are going to be expanding CFMG on Feb 1st. We will be occupying the warehouse to the west of our current location. Good news is we don't need to really move anything, just knock down part of a wall. We have already started to recruit a small group of people to come in and help us with this "knock down".

I wanted to tell you all about a few changes that will be happening in the coming months as CFMG expands.

New classes

We are planning on expanding the CFMG Endurance class to another night, rather than just on Tuesdays. Also, we are working on putting together an Olympic Weightlifting class and some sort of mobility/stretching class. More info on prices for these classes will be out as soon as we release the class start dates, but rest assured that it won't be too expensive.

Leader Boards

Yes, we know, we haven't really used our leader boards in a long time. We are planning on repositioning the boards in a spot where we can easily update them. Criteria for who will get on the leader board will be set here soon, but it will probably be limited to the top 8 males and top 8 females as the space on the boards is limited. In the meantime please do not just write your own info up there Sealed.

Checking-in

We are planning on installing a member friendly check-in system. You'll all be given a barcode card to scan each time you come in so we can better track our attendance.

New Office/Entrance

The plan is to move our office into the new space. This will also be the new main point of entrance for the gym. Our current office will become a new waiting area, as well as a spot for you all to leave your gym bags, work clothes, etc. Coach Dawn and Coach Betsy are going to help us lay out this new space and maybe even make it more aesthetically pleasing.

Layout of the New Space

We are already in talks with our equipment dealer about getting more rubber matting to us. We are also planning on building a few lifting platforms that will be used for our Olympic Weightlifting class. There will be a squat rack/pull-up rig, just like the one on the far side of the gym, built and installed at some point too. As far as where everything will go, well we haven't quite figured that out since we can't get in there just yet.

As always we just want to keep you, our community, informed on upcoming changes. Geo and I both want to thank you all for your continued business and support. Don't forget about our current referral program.

P.S. I know you are all thinking it, YES we are going to have an expansion party :). That time and date is TBD but it will happen once we are all settled in.
