Outdoor against Cancer - Advanced Trainer Education

Advanced education for exercises with cancer patients. According to current figures from Robert Koch Institute and German Cancer Associations GEKID (Gesellschaft der epidemiologischen Krebsregister in Deutschland e.V.) there is a 50 percent- risk of getting a malignant tumor (RKI, 2015). Furthermore, over 2000 scientific studies confirm that the risk of dying of cancer can be reduced significantly for those, who do exercises at least three times a week (Kyu et al., 2016; Holmes et al., 2005; McTiernan et al., 2003). In addition, sport has also an impact on cancer patients: Besides low side effects during therapy and a better mental state, there is an up to 40 percent lower risk of relapse (Lehmann et al., 2016; Sternfeld et al., 2009). Sport strengthens not only the musculature, but is also responsible for a better state of mind and enables patients to have a healthy trust in their body. Especially cancer patients have issues with this trust. That`s why it is even more important to make attractive and easy accessible offers of sports for this target group - regardless of age. TUM Sport and Health for Life in cooperation with OaC would like to give already certified coaches the chance to get prepared for a training with cancer patients.
