About the BfitBwell Exercise Program 


BfitBwell Logo

BfitBwell is a 3-month long individualized exercise program for individuals diagnosed with cancer who are currently going through treatment at the University of Colorado Cancer Center or no more than post 6 months treatment. An extensive pre- and post-assessment is conducted providing insight into diet and nutrition, sleep, stress, fatigue and depression, quality of life, self-efficacy, muscular strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance. Participants will be working one-on-one and in semi-private settings completing an exercise program designed by a Cancer Exercise Specialist. 

All training sessions are individualized and tailored to the specific needs of the individual. Participants will have access to the fitness center Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm, and full access Saturday and Sunday, 7am-5pm.

Vision

To transform the lives of cancer survivors by providing expert evaluation, excellent patient care, and cancer-specific exercise training. We are research leaders impacting Colorado through collaboration with the University of Colorado Cancer Center, UCHealth system, and their respective care teams.

Specific Aim

Our goal is to provide evidence-based, individualized, and supervised prescriptive exercise interventions to cancer patients and to promote increased functional capacity and quality of life for individuals with cancer during and following treatment.
