client success story

Blaine's return to movement after cancer.

Blaine’s goal was to regain his strength and energy.

Blaine approached us for training shortly after being cleared for exercise. He had undergone a bone marrow transplant to treat leukemia and was managing graft-versus-host disease. This condition made it crucial to tailor exercise intensity to avoid exacerbating ongoing symptoms. 

Our priority was to enhance Blaine’s physical strength and stamina without overloading his immune system or causing undue stress on his body. 

This approach ensured that each workout supported his recovery and overall health, helping him regain functionality and quality of life gradually and safely.

Milestone 1: Within the first month, we developed a routine that respected his body’s current limits while fostering gradual progress.

We monitored how Blaine felt during and after workouts, adjusting the intensity and complexity of exercises. From basic hip thrusts lying on his back, we progressed to more challenging movements like supported squats.

Milestone 2: By the third month, Blaine experienced notable strength gains. He found daily activities like climbing stairs and riding his bike more manageable and enjoyable.

Throughout his journey, our training sessions were a dialogue—constantly adapting and responding to Blaine’s feedback. This personalized approach helped him not only regain physical capabilities but also contributed to better stress-management that contributed to a return to work with confidence.

Blaine’s experience illustrates how personalized and responsive training can help navigate the complexities of recovering from serious illness, supporting not just physical but overall well-being.

Physical activity helps rebuild strength, enhance mobility, and can improve overall mental well-being. It is crucial for regaining functionality and managing symptoms effectively during and after illness.

Physical activity is tailored to your current health status, focusing on gentle, low-impact exercises that gradually increase in intensity based on your recovery and daily energy levels.

It's safe to start personal training once your doctor has cleared you for physical activity. A professional trainer will further tailor your program to be consistent with your medical advice and current health status.

The main priority of your trainer will be finding the appropriate intensity for you.

Initially, training twice a week with a personal trainer is a good start to ensure proper recovery and progression. The frequency can be adjusted based on how well you recover from each session, and in context with how your illness might be impacting you.

Supplementing personal training sessions with low-intensity activities like walking or cycling can further enhance your recovery and help maintain overall fitness.

Your trainer will work with you to help plan your week of fitness, so that it makes sense and is sustainable.
