5. Offer a structured program
Large health clubs can be intimidating to many people, especially those who aren’t feeling their best. Providing a structured program offers a guided introduction to your club. Exercise with instruction and support can be less intimidating for patients.
If your club already offers cancer programing, please add it to the Moving Through Cancer exercise program registry. This database aims to connect patients, families, healthcare providers, and others with exercise programs in their communities.
6. Foster opportunities for support and community
Offer regular opportunities for participants to meet with other people going through the same challenges, such as a weekly support meeting or adding 10 minutes of discussion or sharing to the beginning of training sessions.
7. Help keep the focus off cancer
Sometimes the best thing you can do for someone undergoing cancer treatment is to help them restore some normalcy. Try not to put too much focus on cancer care. Make an effort to ask about hobbies, interests, and other topics.
