Combining Cancer and CrossFit
Sami Mansfield is a Cancer Exercise Specialist and runs an incredible program she calls, Build. It’s a functional fitness program for cancer survivors designed to reduce both the physical and emotional side effects from cancer diagnosis and treatments.
In the world of cancer fighters, competing daily is everything. Sami works on a clinical team during the day and runs Build in the evenings, devoting her life to the encouragement and rehabilitation of cancer patients.
We talk about how Sami came to work with cancer survivors, her plans for growing the program, the community of cancer survivors she’s built, and why you have no excuse but to compete everyday.
“For survivors, they lose faith in their physical wellbeing. That affects their spirit and their ability to fight.”
“It’s a community. They are the key piece. Without them it would just be me showing up and teaching a class.”
“Cancer doesn’t make them weak, it makes them strong. It’s flipping that perception.”
