Clients Dealing with Cancer
In this week’s episode of Fitness Insight, Jamie Atlas (www.bonzabodies.com), Pharoah Kafele (www.puravidaclub.com) and Andrea Oh (www.todaysfitnesstrainer.com) take on one of the toughest topics to openly discuss … cancer. In a fitness environment, where the goal is to remain motivated and positive, the “C Word” isn’t something you hear on the weight room floor or in a group fitness class … but is one that needs to be addressed as the statistics show a large percentage of people globally are affected by cancer (either they know of someone who has been diagnosed or they are dealing with cancer themselves). They put on their “big boy and big girl pants”, start the conversation and bring out some valid points about how to best approach clients with a cancer diagnosis and how to provide a more well-rounded approach to care when it comes to being their personal trainer and part of their support team.
