Recovering cancer patients can benefit from improved fitness and a healthy sense of mindfulness. That’s why Riverside Wellness & Fitness Center - Peninsula in Newport News is delighted to present its newest program, “Cancer Wellness."

Approved and developed alongside Riverside Health System’s physicians and therapists, the Cancer Wellness program features core and strength training, cardiovascular workouts, yoga, and mindfulness practices in a small group format that allows participants to receive individualized attention.

“This is a program designed for both survivors as well as for those currently undergoing treatment,” said Beth Gross, Riverside’s Director of Clinical Wellness Development. “It’s meant to act also as a support group setting for individuals so they can talk about what they’re going through or what they had been going through.”

Sign up for the program by calling 757-875-7525
