Courage in Motion is designed to be a pathway to hope and health for people who are currently undergoing cancer treatment or have gone through treatment in the past year. The patient’s caregiver is also eligible. There is no charge for this program. The program begins with a 6-week course at Mary Greeley Medical Center. Participants can then choose to continue with a 12-week program at Ames Fitness Center (AFC).

The 6-week program at Mary Greeley includes three components: exercise classes, water classes and a support group. The exercises classes are led by an exercise physiologist with Mary Greeley’s Rehab & Wellness Department.

The 12-week program allows participants to use Ames Fitness Center facilities while enrolled in Courage in Motion. Participants are offered a rotating schedule of exercise classes led a certified personal trainer. The classes are also provide an opportunity for participants to connect and share their experiences with each other.
