Cancer Exercise Program Group and/or Private Sessions – Class Locations
The following facilities are also offering the Recovery Fitness cancer exercise program:
Comfortable Environment – Exercise With Other Cancer Patients
Many people do not feel comfortable returning to their gyms right after surgery or treatment. Gym classes can be large and impersonal. Our cancer rehabilitation program is held in a relaxed private setting.
Personalized Cancer Exercise Programs
Recovery Fitness® is an exercise program designed with you in mind. Each participant is individually assessed and placed in a small group where everyone is on a similar level. We tailor a fitness program to address the effects of:
(I) Your specific surgery – lymph node dissection, lumpectomy, mastectomy, implant, TRAM flap, and lat flap reconstruction
(II)Your specific treatment – radiation, chemotherapy and hormonal therapy
(III) Groups meet once a week at a convenient day and time. The studio is in Short Hills, a welcome change from a hospital setting or a huge, busy health club.
Medical clearance from your doctor is required

- Marian G. Michaels — M.D.,MPH, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Professor of Pediatrics and Surgery
- Milton M.Michaels — M.D., FACP, retired chairman of Clinical Hematology, Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA
“Cancer has been part of my world for over
30 years. My mother, father, and many other
family members and friends have battled this
disease. This cancer exercise program was inspired by and
is dedicated to these courageous people.”
