CancerFit Program

Wheat Ridge Recreation partners with CancerFit Institute to offer cancer survivors affordable and empowering exercise programs in a healthy, positive, non-intimidating environment within their community.  Exercise Physiologists who specialize in working with cancer patients oversee all aspects of the exercise regimen, which aids in recovery and general fitness during and after treatment.  Pre-assessments are conducted individually to determine an appropriate personalized plan to meet your needs.
