Potential Clients

The University of Northern Colorado Cancer Rehabilitation Institute (UNCCRI) is the only exercise-based cancer rehabilitation facility of its kind. The Institute provides individualized, prescriptive exercise as part of the recovery from cancer treatment-related symptoms.

UNCCRI offers a 4-phase program that consists of one-on-one training, 2-3 sessions per week, for approximately 60 minutes per session. A typical session will focus  on cardiovascular exercise, resistance training, balance activities, flexibility, and stretching. Our program is individualized to fit the needs and goals of each participant. Following an initial physical and psychological assessment at UNCCRI, clients will be assigned to a specific Phase of Rehabilitation based on their treatment status and their placement on the cancer continuum.

The assessment portion of our program is a benefit that is included with the first 12 weeks of training for no additional cost. This full array of physical and psychological assessments is valued at well over $250. Additionally, similar reassessments will be performed following every 12 weeks of training and are free with participation in the program. These periodic follow-up assessments will allow participants to track their recovery and provide valuable information in the formulation of an individualized exercise prescription.
