What does it mean to be “FIT?”
To ALSIGE “FIT” means being physically, mentally, emotionally and financially able to deal with the fight at hand. When you are FIT your body works for you to help combat the disease. You are able to perform your daily functions and enjoy different activities. To be truly FIT, you must be fit in ALL categories and that means getting the help you need in each component. At ALSIGE our goal is to help Veterans, Cancer Warriors and their Caregiver(s) to become FIT!
Physical fitness can be measured in many ways – body mass index, blood pressure, and waistline. But the tape measures and gauges can’t tell you how much more energized and self-confident you’ll feel when you get in shape. What’s more, exercising and eating right can help dramatically reduce stress and many other diseases. ALSIGE approaches health and wellness from a medically integrated perspective, and our foundation offers a wide range of health, fitness, and educational programs and classes. Staff members include highly trained registered dietitians and certified and degreed fitness professionals who can develop individualized exercise programs.
Mentally & Emotionally FIT
There may be times when finding strength is hard and things feel overwhelming. Some people are embarrassed or afraid to admit they’re depressed. It may help to know that depression can be caused by drastic changes. It’s not a sign of weakness, and it’s no one’s fault. ALSIGE is here to support and help everyone cope with their issues. We are dedicated to helping others live healthier and helping reduce stress, anxiety and depression. We want to show our support before, during and after the fight! ALSIGE will help patients stay FIT through it all.
