The band2FIT for Breast Cancer Recovery is a practical and safe home strength program. Designed exclusively for the breast cancer survivor, the resistance program will help survivors regain muscle and bone strength.
The band2FIT’s Breast Cancer Recovery strength program is designed to help the post treatment cancer survivor safely rebuild muscle strength. Be sure to get your doctor’s clearance prior to starting the program.
The band2FIT for Breast Cancer Recovery removes the top barrier to strength training for survivors—not knowing what to do.
»The American Cancer Society and the CDC recommend that cancer
survivors strength train at least two times each week.
» About 50-96% of breast cancer survivors gain fat and lose muscle
tissue. Despite the well-established benefits of exercise after breast
cancer, only half of survivors exercise regularly.
» Following PAL guidelines, the band2FIT provides lightweight AND
progressive resistance options (based on hand position) allowing
participants to start slowly and progress intensity over time.
» The exercises are imprinted ON the band and move in a circuit
starting from the left side of the band to the right. Survivors start
with one circuit, performing 8-10 repetitions and progress to 3
circuits over time.
