PoundPoms® 4 Recovery

PoundPoms® 4 Recovery

The PoundPoms® 4 Recovery Advanced Qualification was developed for health and fitness professionals seeking to attain a higher level of mastery and work with breast cancer patients during and after cancer surgery and treatment and into survivorship. Participants will gain a complete understanding of the entire breast cancer process from diagnosis and treatment to reconstruction and survivorship. Our unique and individualized programming will help to improve the patient’s ability to cope with the mental and physical stress following cancer diagnosis and treatment. Using PoundPoms®, participants will learn how to prescribe corrective exercises for muscle imbalances and range of motion deviations, as well as exercises to promote lymph drainage.

poundPoms 4 Recovery Cancer Exercise Training InstitutePoundPoms® 4 Recovery, is the brainchild created through the collaboration of Andrea Leonard, President of the Cancer Exercise Training Institute & cancer survivor, and Sherry ShamRock, founder of FIT 2 CHEER & inventor of PoundPoms (weighted cheerleading pom poms!) The inspiration was impelled when Natasha Madison a breast cancer survivor and friend of Shamrock’s, contacted her with a desire for Sherry to write an exercise prescription to help Natasha stave off the debilitating conditions resulting from her succumbing to Lymphedema, a chronic ailment that 100% of breast cancer survivors are susceptible to and up to 50% acquire. As a nationally certified personal trainer for 20 years, Sherry was familiar with Lymphedema, but was admittedly no expert. Her research with her sister, who is a PTA (Physical Therapist Assistant) and another friend Emily A. Smith-Francis, the co-author of “A Leg Up on Lymphedema,” advised her on the basics however it was meeting someone familiar with Andrea’s institute that prompted her to contact Andrea. A meeting of minds was quickly attained by the two and the idea of collaboration was the result.  We know in order for our survivors to truly become Thrivers, we must get them out of the medical mindset of their cancer and move them more towards a motivational mindset of recovery. PoundPoms® 4 Recovery has become that program.
