Andrea Leonard, 37-year cancer survivor, PFP 2019 Personal Trainer of the Year, author of “Essential Exercises for Breast Cancer Survivors,” NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist and Performance Enhancement Specialist, ACE Certified Personal Trainer, and President/Founder of the Cancer Exercise Training Institute began her extensive research in 1995; long before anyone had ever heard of “cancer exercise.” She spent three years working on Essential Exercises with the chiefs of breast surgery at Georgetown, George Washington, and Johns’ Hopkins University Hospital Medical Centers. Realizing there was a need to assist patients with many types of cancer, Andrea expanded her research and writing to cover a broader spectrum. She is truly a pioneer in the field of cancer and exercise and has paved the way for other organizations to follow.


Just concluded my newest certification investing in specialised education. The Cancer Specialist Exercise Training is one, if not the most rewarding course I have done so far!It really allows you to immerse in what people are going through when they suffer from Cancer.I highly recommend this course for any fitness professional that wants to work with such a niche population and interlink themselves with other Health Practitioners.

This has been by far the best course I have taken in a long time. I have taken other Cancer webinars before but it did not make me feel confident to work with Cancer patients. So glad I took the leap of faith and jumped into the Cancer Exercise Training course.I have learnt more in the last three weeks than I have in the past 6 months with the other information providers. I cannot recommend this course enough!

As a Group Fitness Instructor who primarily works with the Older Adult Population, I’ve had many clients who’ve gone through Cancer Treatment. I realised that I needed to learn more to Keep my clients safe and as well as they can be. Soon after hearing about the Cancer Exercise Specialist Training Course, I too was diagnosed with Lymphedema and this made it even more urgent to learn as much as I can to help myself and others. Thank you for this great opportunity to provide the much needed help.

Working in the Fitness industry while doing my degree on the effects of exercise on Breast Cancer, I was alarmed to find that there was very limited information out there available for Cancer Patients. One of my PT clients was diagnosed with Cancer and her Oncologist commented on how well she responded to treatments due to her strength and exercises. I recently completed the Cancer Exercise Specialist Training which gave me the extensive knowledge required to help my clients. I would highly recommend this course to anyone in the Fitness industry looking to specialise in this field as the support provided by Andrea and the team has been invaluable.
