During this month TMP is raising awareness and funds to improve the access to exercise for patients undergoing cancer treatment. If you would like to contribute, all you need to do is sign up for the special fundraiser classes.

” Exercise during cancer treatment has a wide range of benefits, including reducing the impact of common side effects, increasing the quality of life and reducing the amount of time needed to get back to normal activities after treatment has ended. Unfortunately, access to exercise during hospital treatment is often restrained by a lack of equipment and facilities.”

We like to share our passion for exercise and health by donating the much needed equipment for the oncology department at the AMC.

If you would like to contribute, all you need to do is sign up for one of these classes:

Omdat het lichaam op latere leeftijd wat anders nodig heeft dan een jonger lichaam zijn de Pilates oefeningen in deze les aangepast. De oefeningen zijn minder belastend voor de wervelkolom, maar zeker niet minder effectief. Nadruk ligt op een goede houding. We gaan de spieren van de romp versterken waardoor stabiliteit en mobiliteit worden vergroot.
