The Breast Cancer Recovery BOSU® Specialist (BCRBS) program was developed for health and fitness professionals seeking to attain a higher level of mastery and work with breast cancer patients during and after cancer surgery and treatment and into survivorship. Participants will gain a complete understanding of the entire breast cancer process from diagnosis and treatment to reconstruction and survivorship. This unique and individualized programming will help clients to cope with the mental and physical stress following cancer diagnosis and treatment. 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.
This comprehensive programming covers 25 types of cancer, as well as pediatrics, with special emphasis on breast cancer and breast reconstruction. There are two methods for obtaining certification: take-home and live in-person workshops. The Cancer Exercise Training Institute has trained more health and fitness professionals worldwide to become Cancer Exercise Specialists than any other organization.
CPTN has partnered with Andrea Leonard, cancer survivor, author of Essential Exercises for Breast Cancer Survivors, NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist and Performance Enhancement Specialist, and President/Founder of the Cancer Exercise Training Institute (CETI) began her extensive research since 1995 before the term “Cancer Exercise” became wide-spread.
To maintain your specialist designation, you will be required to requalify every two years. This ensures that all Breast Cancer Recovery BOSU® Specialists™ maintain a high level of proficiency within the ever-changing field of cancer treatments and procedures. Continuing education for the CEU credits will only be accepted from the Cancer Exercise Training Institute. In lieu of CEUs, however, participants may choose to receive the latest version of the BCRBS Handbook and re-test for their renewal.
