"Fitness for Cancer Patients" is for men and women who are struggling to be healthier after a diagnosis of cancer. The book, by design, is very short and readable. It does not include specific exercises but rather addresses the need for fitness. It’s a beginner’s guide, a motivational tool to encourage a focus on health. This book is for you if: * Your get-up-and-go has got up and gone! You might be in any stage of treatment. You’re tired and you hope that, by initiating an exercise program, you might develop more strength and stamina. * You used to be in fairly good shape. Since your cancer diagnosis, you’ve lost a lot of your athletic prowess and fitness. You want to get that back! * You’ve never been very athletic but recently your oncologist told you that you should begin an exercise program. You really don’t know where to begin. * It’s taken years to get out of shape and you’re frightened that it will take a while to get into better physical condition, especially following cancer treatment. If you want to become more fit, where do you start? "Fitness for Cancer Patients" can help you on your journey.
