Imagine You Had Cancer – Part 1

Imagine You Had Cancer…..

Your doctor has just informed you that you have cancer.

It’s treatable, but it’s going to mean surgery and chemotherapy, which will more than likely make you lose your hair; you will most likely be constantly sick, tired beyond belief, and unable to work.

However, the doctor also informed you that exercise has been shown to help cope with the disease and improve treatment effects, so you should start exercising as soon as possible and try to stay fit throughout the course of treatment.

What now?

You inform your family, and of course they’re devastated, but willing to stand by you to do whatever it takes to help you through this trying time.

You go to your local gym and tell them the doctor said you needed to exercise to keep you healthy through treatments, but no one there knows anything about cancer and exercise. Unfortunately, there aren’t many trainers in the world that can say they specialize in working with cancer patients (a field called Exercise Oncology).

Fortunately, one of the trainers knows of a product available that’s geared towards recovering cancer patients that might help you out and give you the direction you’re looking for. It’s called:


It is written by Dean Somerset, a kinesiologist in Edmonton, Alberta who has studied cancer in laboratory settings, clinical settings, research trials, and has also trained dozens of cancer patients throughout their treatments.

He’s one of only a handful of fitness professionals in the world who can say that they have this type of training and experience. When you get the complete package, it has video seminars for both the professional and the layperson who may not have any experience with fitness, so it can help anyone to increase their knowledge on the subject. The workout program is structured to take into account your treatment schedule, and makes sure you’re working in a progressive manner to keep you as healthy as possible.

Before today, you didn’t know what to do. Now, you have hope that you will make it through this alright.

Imagine Your Client Had Cancer

You answer the phone to hear a sobbing client telling you they were just diagnosed with cancer, and that they need surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. They’re incredibly scared about what this will involve, but their doctor told them to start exercising to help deal with the treatments.
