WNY Cancer Survivors Create Exercise Video to Inspire Others!

A group of local Cancer Survivors have teamed up to create an exercise program to get people ‘moving’!!!

Their idea is in keeping with what the National Cancer Institute recommends in general but especially for those who have been diagnosed with cancer.

Here’s the National Cancer Institute’s recommendation, as well as definition, regarding ‘Physical Exercise':

Physical activity is defined as any movement that uses skeletal muscles and requires more energy than does resting. Physical activity can include working, exercising, performing household chores, and leisure-time activities such as walking, tennis, hiking, bicycling, and swimming.

Physical activity is essential for people to maintain a balance between the number of calories consumed and the number of calories used. Consistently expending fewer calories than are consumed leads to obesity, which scientists have convincingly linked to increased risks of 13 different cancers (1). Additionally, evidence indicates that physical activity may reduce the risks of several cancers through other mechanisms, independent of its effect on obesity.

Well seven local cancer survivors put together a 22 minute video, complete with their own testimonials regarding their victory over cancer and how exercise played a major role.  The video is motivational with the group motivating others as they do cardio, upper and lower body exercise and stretching.
