Andrea Leonard & Breast Cancer Recovery
The Breast Cancer Recovery BOSU® Specialist Advanced Qualification was developed by Andrea Leonard, Founder and President of the Cancer Exercise Training Institute. It was created for health and fitness professionals seeking to attain a higher level of mastery and work with breast cancer patients in post-operative exercise and quality-of-life programs. Participants will gain a complete understanding of the entire breast cancer process, from diagnosis and treatment all the way through reconstruction. Using the BOSU® Balance Trainer, participants will learn how to prescribe corrective exercises for muscle imbalances and range of motion deviations, as well as exercises to promote lymph drainage.
