Exercise Program Directory

Cancer Directory Program

The Moving Through Cancer program was developed to help patients, families, health care providers and others find hospital and community-based exercise programs in their communities. Being active throughout the cancer journey and beyond can improve one's ability to handle and stick with cancer treatments, help the patient feel better and may even prevent cancer recurrence.

Please enter your search information below to discover what programs are available in a specific area. The programs are divided into those that are delivered in a medical setting, in a community-based facility, or can be done at home. Contact information is provided so that you can reach out to a program coordinator to learn more.

If you wish to edit your program, please contact Kathryn Schmitz at [email protected].

The goal of Moving Through Cancer is to provide information and promote awareness of physical activity, health, and wellness, and the benefits of physical activity in the prevention and treatment of disease. The programs and service providers identified in the Moving Through Cancer directory have no source, sponsorship or other affiliation with the American College of Sports Medicine (“ACSM”) nor have they been evaluated by ACSM. Individuals should consult and follow the advice of oncology professionals before commencing any treatment plan, including any program or other service offered by a provider identified in the directory. If you are a listed service provider and wish to be removed from the directory, or if you otherwise wish to provide information that advances the goal of Moving Through Cancer, please contact ACSM at [email protected].

University of Northern Colorado Cancer Rehabilitation Institute

Program Type
Community
Program Description
The University of Northern Colorado Cancer Rehabilitation Institute (UNCCRI) offers a four-phase program that consists of one-on-one training, three sessions per week, for 60 minutes per session. All exercise is performed at their 10,000 square foot facility located on the campus of the University of Northern Colorado. All exercise is individualized and prescribed. The program is designed in such a way that participants can complete a single 12-week Phase or remain in the program as long as they desire. A typical session focuses on cardiovascular exercise, resistance exercise, balance activities, flexibility, and stretching. Their program is individualized to fit the specific needs and goals of each participant. Following an initial comprehensive physical and psychological assessment at UNCCRI, participants are assigned to a specific Phase of Rehabilitation based on their treatment status and their placement on the cancer continuum. The assessment portion of the program is a benefit that is included with the first 12 weeks of training for no additional cost. Additionally, similar reassessments are performed following every 12 weeks of training and are free with participation in the program. These periodic follow-up assessments allow participants to track their recovery and provide valuable information in the formulation of an individualized exercise prescription. Individuals with any form of cancer over 18 years of age are accepted and at any point after a cancer diagnosis. Entry into the program requires a physician referral.
