WELLNESS

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each year, approximately 1.38 million people are diagnosed with breast cancer. This makes breast cancer the most prevalent form of cancer for women worldwide. For men, breast cancer ranks as one of the rarest cancers, affecting less than 1% of the male population. Little is known about what causes breast cancer, leaving preventative measures to a minimum. However, there are some things that can be done to lower risk factors and treat the cancer in its early stages.

PREVENTION

As recommended by the National Breast Cancer Foundation, anything that can be done to boost the immune system, maintain weight, and keep fat intake low can help to prevent breast cancer. While there isn’t much known about causes, it is known that fat triggers the estrogen release that encourages tumor growth. Some ideas are:

  • 30 minutes of exercise a day / 3 hours of exercise per week
  • Eating a low-fat diet
  • Filling your diet with green and orange veggies

EARLY DETECTION

There are several ways to encourage early detection for breast cancers, some of which are cost-free:

  • Self-exam once per month
  • Clinical breast exam
  • Mammogram (recommended yearly for women ages 40 and up)

COMMUNITY

TRIBE

TRIBE Team Training at Genesis Miramont South

TRIBE is our small group training program that is the perfect bridge between Personal Training and Group Fitness Classes. Members receive the motivational encouragement from a group, as well as the special attention from a Certified TRIBE Coach. Here at Miramont by Genesis South; we have three programs: FIT, LIFE, and CORE.

FIT is our High Intensity Program that uses weights and plyometric cardio to increase speed, strength, and stamina. Teammates gain better range of motion, increased blood flow, and the reward of burning calories for hours after the workout has ended.

LIFE is our Functional Training Program that combines weights and cardio with low to no impact. Our teammates gain strength as well as improvements in cardiovascular fitness, while being gentle on the joints. It utilizes innovative tools to exercise and challenge all fitness levels.

CORE is our isolation program that targets the building block of our body. It’s focus is on the Back, Belly, Bum and Shoulders. This program utilizes lots of equipment to help teammates learn to connect to the muscles that hold our bodies together. It helps to increase flexibility, stabilization, and strength; all while improving posture and working up a sweat.  

Our seasons run on a 6 week basis, with a FREE TRIAL WEEK that runs in between every season. We are always happy to plug in new faces to our teams.

Check out the schedule online or contact Nicole Stevenson for more information on how to get connected with a TRIBE Team and Coach.

Look in the next couple of weeks for a NEW: 7 am CORE Session with TRIBE Coach Austen on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s!
