Following an article published by Wicked Local regarding the beneficial affects exercise has on breast cancer patients and survivors, fitness trainer Lorna Kleidman offers a response.

On October 22, kettlebell trainer Lorna Kleidman responds to an article published by Wicked Local which reveals that exercising can have major benefits for people with breast cancer.

According to Wicked Local, feeling better, recovering faster and having improved energy levels are the benefits that exercise can provide for breast cancer patients. The article also reports that The National Cancer Institute has discovered that “four or more hours a week” of exercise can help decrease breast cancer risk by lowering hormone levels.
According to Wicked Local, Megan MacInnes, a breast cancer survivor, found exercise to be constructive during her battle with the disease. “Most surgeons recommend waiting eight to 10 weeks but I found exercising early on was helpful” Says MacInnes. Wicked Local reports, MacInnes and many other breast cancer survivors are now cancer free, and are preventing the return of cancer cells by making physical and mental lifestyle changes to battle their condition.

Lorna Kleidman, a fitness trainer and creator of the kettlebell exercises program KettleX, adds that exercise has confidence boosting benefits. According to Kleidman, “Exercise will do wonders to improve strength, endurance and energy. In addition, exercise can really motivate a person and make them feel empowered. For breast cancer patients and survivors to commit to an exercise routine, they are giving themselves the opportunity to start feeling better both physically and mentally after each workout.”

In the Wicked Local article, the chief physical therapist at Emerson Hospital, Vivien Fiset, explains, “Doctors often tell patients to get back to the gym and exercise after cancer. But this can be intimidating for someone to get back into that routine, especially for women who have had breast cancer surgery.” Kleidman recommends that patients and survivors ease into an exercise routine after surgery and find a program that they feel comfortable and confident with.

Lorna Kleidman is a Three-Time World Champion and World Record holder in kettlebell sport and the most decorated kettlebell athlete in the country. She created the unique techniques that are used in KettleX as a way to bring the benefits of the weights to everyone in a simple to use, comprehensive and fun format. Lorna has been teaching individuals and group classes for the past six years.
