Informational Session on One-on-One, In-Person Personal Training Sessions with Laura Coleman, 
Certified Personal Trainer and Cancer Exercise Specialist 

Please RSVP for this session above

Class begins promptly at 5:30pm



Session Description:

This session explains a new free service we are offering in partnership with Laura Coleman, a Cancer Exercise Specialist and founder of CANcer-VIVE Fitness. The service consists of 8 FREE one-on-one personal training sessions with Laura for women who've had a lumpectomy or mastectomy in the last 6 months or who have this type of surgery scheduled in the next 6 months. Surgery and treatment come with many different side effects. If you want to feel better both physically and mentally, then this program is perfect for you.   

This information session is virtual, but the training sessions themselves will be offered at the Pink House. They will typically start with gentle stretching to help you regain range of motion in areas that have been affected by surgery and treatment. Resistance and strength exercises will slowly be introduced at a pace that you are comfortable with. Whether you have experience working out or even if you have never entered a gym, Laura will create custom workouts to meet your own unique individual needs.



Instructor Bio: 

My journey in the fitness industry began 10 years ago as a group fitness instructor. I discovered I had a passion and talent in helping others transition into, achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle so I decided to take my education a step further and become a Certified Personal Trainer. Knowing that exercise and nutrition go hand in hand...I pursued a nutrition certification with Precision Nutrition. It all came together as my previous career was in the Culinary field.

In September 2015 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Needless to say this news rocked my world! I continued to teach and work with clients throughout my recovery...they were some of my biggest cheerleaders throughout my whole journey! As I did research about fitness during and after treatments and surgeries and sought advice from my doctors, I realized very quickly that resources and trainers were limited. I then decided to transition my training and education into cancer exercise fitness and became certified as a Cancer Exercise Specialist and Breast Cancer Recovery Specialist through CETI.

My mission is to help people with or recovering from cancer, exercise safely, effectively and with confidence! Whether exercise is new to your lifestyle or you are wanting to get back into the gym, we will work together to develop a program to fit your individual needs and goals!


I have been happily married to my best friend for 23 years and together we have 2 strong, smart, beautiful daughters. Their love and support is what got me through my cancer hiccup and continues to drive me!
