Review for Strength for Life Inc, Kings Park, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

There's no good side to cancer, but we have the ability to find a silver lining behind this dark cloud. The Strength for Life program represents such a sliver lining. I once asked one of my oncologists "what's the best way to decrease the chance of cancer recurring?" Her answer was a concise "exercise". Well, that resonated with me. I heard of SFL incidentally and I'm glad I acted on the tip. To exercise with people in the same boat as me could really hep me with my physical conditioning regimen in an effort to keep my body as strong as possible. I was never into physical conditioning or working out...a sliver lining...SFL landed in my lap. It got me exercising. But that's not all. When you attend SFL fitness classes, whether it be yoga or exercise conditioning, a bond and comradery develops with the other clients. That in itself is a positive effect on one's well-being. Support is invaluable. That's what we offer to each other. I have honestly never felt so strong, physically, mentally, emotionally, as I do now since joining SFL. I know there are many practitioners, but big thanks go out to the very knowledgeable, compassionate instructors that I have had the pleasure of following, Debbie Hughes and Isabel Schaefer. The program has really given me a new Strength in my Life to help me fight this disease. I am very grateful for that.

Review for Strength for Life Inc, Kings Park, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It's just incredible how something so good could exist as a result of something so bad. Cancer can be a life zapper in so many ways. Strength for Life is the opposite. It's a vehicle for providing encouragement and restoring hope to cancer survivors through compassionate, empathetic guidance in exercise. And in turn, a renewal, physical and emotional happens! People are brought together and there's almost an immediate bond...there's at the very least a common bond, which is healing from the ravages of cancer in some way through exercise! I love that I found Strength For Life!
