COVID-19 Situation: We are happy to report that our Foundation is now providing Triumph Fitness to cancer survivors in both virtual and in-person formats. Our in-person format is held in designated community centers or fitness facilities with our team only using Group Ex rooms. Each participant receives a Triumph-on-the-Go Exercise Kit to have the basic equipment needed to exercise throughout the program.
Triumph Fitness has been offered at no cost to adult survivors in our community since 2005 thanks to the generosity of hundreds of donors and sponsors.
Exercise is one of the most effective things Survivors can do to reduce the chance of recurrence and improve their quality of life.
Participants are guided by cancer exercise specialists whose training certification enables them to understand the complex challenges survivors face.

A cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment can be devastating both emotionally and physically. The goal of Triumph Fitness is to help cancer survivors take back their lives from cancer while exercising with fellow survivors. Participants are safely and effectively guided by our team of professional instructors, who are all certified in cancer recovery.
This 12-week program is specifically designed to assist survivors who have recently completed treatment by regaining strength, stamina and confidence lost during their battles with cancer. It is offered at no cost to eligible survivors in the Sacramento metro area.
When treatment ends, Triumph leads the way back
“Triumph is the sole reason I am where I am today. When I began the program, I was unable to run, jump, do push-ups, let alone most household and everyday tasks. I was short of breath consistently. I am now able to do everything, including picking up my daughter, climbing ladders and more! This program has enabled me to learn what it takes to stay fit. Not become a gym “tough guy”, not to become a gym guru, but to become and stay fit on my own. I owe it to the instructors and Triumph for where I am today.”
Adult Cancer Survivors who:
An encouraging, safe environment for gaining physical strength and confidence. A program that is gentle and progressive. Triumph is not a “bootcamp”!
The chance to meet fellow survivors who are just getting back into fitness after battling cancer. Make new friends with people who really “get it”.
A “no judgment zone” at every work-out, where your goals and accomplishments (large and small) are recognized and celebrated!
The Program is tailored to individual challenges (such as lymphedema, neuropathy, range of motion issues, balance, extreme fatigue, and loss of muscle mass) while using the group dynamic to build confidence.
Participants improve muscle mass, strength, flexibility, & endurance, improving capacity to perform activities of daily living. Reduce the severity of cancer side effects, prevent unwanted weight changes, improve energy levels, and regain self-esteem.
Prior to graduation, Triumph instructors work with each participant to create a custom fitness plan to continue exercising on their own. Whether in a gym, or at home, Participants can continue to “Triumph” on their own.
