A digital fitness platform, titled MyVictory, was launched to provide cancer survivors live and on-demand workouts specifically geared towards survivors all types of cancers.
The modified workouts were developed to cater to the various needs of those who are currently cancer free, or who are still recovering and have been cleared by their oncologists to exercise without medical supervision. In the COVID-19 era, the service is also able to provide immuno-compromised cancer survivors with a safer at-home fitness option.
“There’s never been a more important time for the current community of 17 million cancer survivors in the U.S. to stay connected and active,” Glenn Houck, co-founder of MyVictory said in a press release. “My co-founder Andrew [Coleman] and I wanted to do more to not only raise awareness of the importance of exercise for cancer recovery and prevention but to also create a fitness service for survivors that was affordable, safe, and accessible – anytime, anywhere.”
In an interview with CancerNetwork®, Houck and Coleman discussed the platform and the benefits it offers to cancer survivors.
