Exercise Class for Patients and Caregivers

Older women in exercise class

Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center invites patients, caregivers and survivors to join an hour-long class that promotes rebuilding strength and stamina, regaining mobility and flexibility and reducing fatigue.  Physical activity is one of the best methods to prevent and treat physical side effects of cancer treatment, as well as achieve long-term health and wellness goals.

Movements in this class target certain areas of the body including abs, legs, lower back, thighs and glutes. The focus of these exercises is to boost energy levels, stamina and bone density without jumping and running, which can put strain on the joints.

This program is led by Joann Fegley, MBA and MS in Exercise Physiology, a Certified Personal Trainer since 2007 with an extensive exercise and fitness background.
