Fluid Running for Cancer Recovery

When you’re recovering from the effects of cancer, the idea of exercise may be the furthest thing from your mind, but the reality is that it might just be one of things you really need.  Easing into exercise with a water-based workout has many additional benefits that will aid in your recovery also.  In a study published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, women with early stage breast cancer that participated in a deep water exercise program showed a greatly reduced fatigue score immediately after the workout, and also at the 6 month follow-up.  With Fluid Running, you get all the benefits that come along with aqua therapy, along with our instructional and motivating workouts to make sure you maximize your time and effort in the pool.
