ABOUT THE TRAINER: Lisa Walther
The program is led by Lisa Walther, Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer (CCET) through the American College of Sports Medicine. Lisa is a two-time cancer survivor herself and has been supporting and training clients for over 15 years. Her personal motivation for becoming a Cancer Exercise Trainer began when she was originally diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 30 and found that there was no real guidance available to her for how to recover and retrain her body for healthy activity. A fitness enthusiast, she made it her goal to learn how to effectively train herself and then how to lead and train other survivors as well. Lisa liaises with other personal trainers and service providers in the fitness and oncologic arena to offer survivors a wide range of offerings, information and support related to healthy living.
