Fit 4 Prevention: Lowering Your Risk One Workout At A Time

Just 30 minutes of exercise 3-4 times a week lowers your risk of developing breast cancer by 30-50%.

This Fall, for Breast Cancer Prevention month, we are focusing on exercise as a means to promote overall wellness and lowering our risk of breast cancer. Our goal is to inspire people to reduce their risk of cancers by adopting a healthier, more active lifestyle in a way that sparks their inner champion.

So, with the help of  GoMacro, Mindbody, and Biostrap get ready for the 3rd annual Fit 4 Prevention that’s bigger than ever!  

Fit 4 Prevention is a national movement to raise awareness about breast cancer prevention through fitness and wellness. Throughout the month of October, we’re working with studios, gyms, and individuals around the country to raise funds and increase awareness for The Keep A Breast Foundation and our mission to empower young people around the world with breast health education and support. The movement also has incredible sponsors including IdeaFitBetty DesignsLeus, and Saxx Underwear!

We need your help to spread the word to get you or your favorite studios involved!

We will provide you with the tools you need to register, promote and put on your event.

There so many benefits to staying active and doing so can make a difference at any age. In fact…

Strenuous activity in teens as young as 12 can lead to a reduction in breast cancer risk.

Women who were active during the day, engaging in heavy lifting or carrying rather than mostly sitting, have a 38% reduced risk of invasive breast cancers.

2 ½ hours of physical activity a week can lower your blood pressure and improve your cholesterol.

The gentle muscle stretching of yoga can immediately reduce stress.

Evidence shows a decreasing risk of breast cancer as you exercise more often & for longer.

Exercise can help improve your hormone levels and the way your immune system works.

So, what’s your fit?

It’s not a number on a scale or a pant size. It’s the feeling of strength and confidence in your body performing at its optimum level so you can do anything you put your mind to.

Staying fit and healthy helps reduce your risk of many diseases, lowers your stress level, and increases those natural endorphins that make us happier and healthier. A fitness and wellness routine gives us the opportunity to be our own health advocates and embrace life’s challenges with boldness.

Our bodies are all different and equally beautiful. You know when you feel your best and we want to know what fit means to you! Share a photo or video on social media and tag it with #FIT4PREVENTION!
