Meet Your Trainer: Lynn Rosenzweig MS, PT
My physical therapy background and training as a cancer exercise specialist have helped me develop a training program that will get participants to the finish line—walking or running or a combination of both! Exercise has been proven to be beneficial for decreasing the rate of recurrence, and having others around you motivates and inspires you to push yourself. We start as strangers, but after a few weeks new friendships have developed! We’ve all had breast cancer but we don’t really focus on that, we focus on fitness, benefits of exercise, nutrition, stretching techniques, getting fit and having fun at the same time!
“It is an understatement when I say that running is not my favorite activity but the benefits for me are vital. Every step combats osteoporosis and improves cardio health. For me the Cynwyd Trail Blazers is the sugar that makes the medicine go down. Being part of a team of wonderful women of all ages, from all walks of life who unite to have fun, get fit and support a common cause is the incentive I need to resist inertia, don my running shoes and just “Do It!” And after every run, I am always glad I did.”
“Transformational experience! Last year post mastectomy I was using a walker…this year I am completing a 5K! The Cynwyd Trailblazers have enabled me to not only improve my overall health but also give me the opportunity to bond and train with an amazing group of fellow breast cancer survivors!”
“[Training] has been fabulous. I was just thinking that my joint pain has disappeared and I’ve been wondering if it has to do with the running/walking. Lynn has been very uplifting, inspirational, and helpful!“
