ARE YOU A CANCER SURVIVOR? Join Our Study and Help Researchers Learn More About the Impact of Exercise On Health!

Study Overview

Study Purpose
Researchers at Indiana University want to know more about how one-on-one exercise with a trainer can impact the short and long-term health outcomes in adolescent and young adult cancer survivors. The purpose of this study is to better understand whether or not adolescent and young adult cancer survivors can complete an wellness program after treatment and whether or not that program may impact cardiovascular strength and balance.

Study Description

  • Complete 3 one-hour online assessments
  • Wear a study-provided FItBit while you're participating
  • Persons randomized to the Exercise Training Group - complete 3 one-hour guided exercise sessions per week for 12-weeks (online via Zoom)
  • Persons randomized to the Wellness Coaching Group - complete 3 hours of wellness coaching sessions per week for 12 weeks (online via Zoom)
You will receive 1:1 training sessions with a personal trainer or lifestyle coach at no cost to you for the duration of the study.  You may also keep the FitBit as a token of appreciation for participating.
