Pink Ribbon at the PJCC

The PJCC is proud to offer The Pink Ribbon Program, a postoperative workout designed to enhance recovery for breast cancer patients. It's the only program of its kind on the Peninsula!

About the PJCC Pink Ribbon Program

This innovative program includes:

  • Supervision by highly trained medical exercise specialists
  • Pre- and post-fitness assessments
  • Individualized exercise programs designed to produce significant changes in health
  • 30-minute Individual Personal Training sessions twice a week for eight weeks
  • The Program is delivered in a fun, motivational and supportive setting

These individual post-operative Personal Training sessions are open to all breast cancer survivors whether surgery was eight weeks or 20 years ago.

One participant reported that when she entered the program she was unable to open a carton of milk or lift her arms over her head to put a shirt on. Upon completing the program she was able to perform these essential tasks of daily living. Another woman reported that Pink Ribbon “made me feel healthy rather than sick.” Trainers provide emotional support and encouragement on an individual basis, as well as evidence-based individual fitness programs.

The PJCC is the only facility on the Peninsula to offer this innovative program.
