CrossFit through chemo – it’s possible

I have said all along I believe if your body is familiar with something then doing it through treatment is OK. Before treatment I could deadlift 95 kg’s, squat 70 kg’s and do full range push-ups. Doing CrossFit during treatment I had to scale down the weights, sometimes I would only do bodyweight exercises. I believe exercise helped me feel better both mentally and physically. I may not have been able to keep up with everyone else but life is about challenging yourself and doing the best you can. So that’s what I did.

  1. You are so inspiring! I’ve been doing crossfit for 14 months and start chemo in a week or so. Do you think you’d be able to email me some tips on modifications you made?

  2. Hello! So wonderful finding your blog. I have been doing CrossFit, a coach for about three years and I will be starting chemo in about three weeks. So inspiring reading your story!

  3. I have stuck with Crossfit during 15 rounds of chemo I even did every open workout. It has been so hard but worth it. The breathing for me is what is different. Get winded more easily. Keep fighting do what’s right for you. Don’t give up. Breast cancer sucks but I will beat this beast
