Adams State University Department of Kinesiology will continue important research on the effects of exercise on the physical, mental, and social health of cancer survivors.
The Larry Holder Exercise and Cancer Survivor program 12-week program includes one week of pre-testing and 10 weeks of exercise programming, three times a week, and one week of post-testing.
Interested participants can attend one of two organizational meetings to learn more and sign-up, at no cost to the participant, at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22, or 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29, both in the Adams State East Campus Building room 107. The East Campus is located on the corner of Second Street and La Veta Ave.
Once cancer survivors are selected, they will be pre-tested and then randomly assigned to an exercise group or control group. The control and exercise groups will both have pre- and post-testing. The exercise group also will participate in supervised activities, including one day of cardio, one day of light circuit training, and one day of group activity that includes games or a sport. The control group will not be included in any exercise intervention but will carry on with their usual lifestyle and activities.
