Move to Heal Fitness Classes
Women of all fitness levels are encouraged to join these classes – led by certified instructors and designed for cancer survivors at any stage of treatment or recovery. All instructors are educated and experienced in the special needs of working with the cancer community. This is a safe space to join other women who are maintaining or regaining strength.
We offer a range of Move to Heal classes based on the four pillars of effective exercise programs – flexibility, aerobics, balance and strength. Experts recommend including all four aspects in your weekly routine. Our instructors will assess your health and fitness levels to help you build strength and boost your energy while enjoying the camaraderie of other women in a supportive environment.

Flexibility: Ability to move joints well enough to prevent injury through a full range of motion.
Aerobics: Increases breathing and heart rate; also known as “cardio.”
Balance: Encourages functional movement to prevent falls. Important for safety, especially if experiencing neuropathy.
Strength: Increases coordination and ability to move weight — bodyweight or other. Form is always more important than weight!
Very Low: Focused on moving slowly and breathing deeply. An excellent starting point or a restorative activity to combine with other workouts.
Low: Involves light activity that doesn’t feel hard; it may not change your breathing pattern or make you sweat.
Moderate: Gets your heart pumping but will generally allow you to carry on a normal conversation.
High: Requires endurance and may be intense enough that normal conversation may not be possible.
“Joining TSNW gave me a whole boat load of supportive and joyful sisters. It was almost worth getting cancer to be able to meet these super women! Exercise has helped me to stay alive and young as I am getting older. It is giving me strength that I never guessed that I would have after cancer (3 times) or at my age (81). TSNW is not just a physical fitness organization. It is made up of a group of strong, caring women who support each other in many ways. We are all here for each other and have a lot of fun together.”
