You Can Do It!
Are you a walker, runner, biker, paddler, snowshoer, hiker, or general fitness enthusiast? Team Survivor Northwest offers activities for women in all stages of cancer treatment and recovery. Programs are no cost to our members and appropriate for women in all levels of fitness. Our Outreach Manager and Fitness Instructors can help you choose a program that suits your interests and needs. For more information, contact our Outreach Manager in the TSNW office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (206)732-8350.
All of the activities on our Programs page are tagged with a meter to let you know how much effort may be involved. Be sure to check with your doctor that you are undertaking the right level of activity for your current health level.
Gentle exercise may involve light stretching and activity that won’t raise your heart rate above 100 bpm.
Moderate exercise may get your heart pumping, but will generally allow you to carry on a normal conversation
Vigorous activity may require endurance and is intense enough that normal conversation is not possible.
For many of our members this is their first time doing a triathlon! This fun and empowering program meets seasonally, trains women to swim 0.5 miles, cycle 12.4 miles, run or walk 3.1 miles, and make efficient transitions.
If you are looking for a team activity that allows you to get away from it all without leaving the city, get a total body workout, and enjoy the camaraderie of a great group of women, dragon boating may be for you! The competitive Dragon Boat season runs from April-September, with off-season practice year round.
