Fitness specialists certified in cancer exercise

Buena Vista Regional Medical Center Fitness and Health Center Fitness Specialists Nancy Marshall and Melissa Iehl, along with Evan Franzmeier, fitness center manager, recently became certified cancer exercise specialists.

The Cancer Exercise Specialist Advanced Qualification was developed for health and fitness professionals to teach them hands-on skills needed to guide patients through treatment into recovery and survivorship, with a focus on individualized programming.

“We recognize that each cancer patient’s experience is different and we are here for you,” states Iehl. “We are ready to help cancer patients and survivors realize their health and fitness goals.”
