TRAINING - LIVE WEBINAR SESSIONS JULY 1-22 - taught by Laura Porro, MA, PhD, Assoc CIPD

2021 will be a time for reinventing ourselves, and the fitness industry as we have known it. It's time to up-level your skill set and position yourself as the local oncology & aging expert.

The Cancer Exercise Specialist Advanced Qualification 13th Edition includes new and updated books, videos, and online learning platform with the most up-to-date evidence-based material in the world. Beginning July 1, 2021, Laura Porro will conduct a weekly "live" webinar on Thursday evenings through July 22nd from 7:00-10:00 p.m. UK time. During this time, she will go through the Four modules of the CES Advanced Qualification, teach you how to conduct live virtual assessments, and answer any questions that you may have. The training will culminate with case studies and exam prep.

The Cancer Exercise Specialist® Advanced Qualification was developed for health and fitness professionals seeking to attain a higher level of mastery and work with cancer patients during and after cancer surgery and treatment and into survivorship. Participants will gain a complete understanding of the entire cancer process from diagnosis and treatment to reconstruction and survivorship. Our unique and individualized programming will help to improve the patient’s ability to cope with the mental and physical stress following cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Our comprehensive programming covers 27 types of cancer, as well as pediatrics, with special emphasis on breast cancer and breast reconstruction. We provide two methods for obtaining your Advanced Qualification: home study and live in-person workshops. The Cancer Exercise Training Institute has trained more health and fitness professionals worldwide to become Cancer Exercise Specialists® than any other organization. Andrea Leonard, 37-year cancer survivor, PFP 2019 Personal Trainer of the Year, author of “Essential Exercises for Breast Cancer Survivors,” NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist and Performance Enhancement Specialist, ACE Certified Personal Trainer, and President/Founder of the Cancer Exercise Training Institute began her extensive research in 1995; long before anyone had ever hear of “cancer exercise.” She spent three years working on Essential Exercises with the chiefs of breast surgery at Georgetown, George Washington, and Johns’ Hopkins University Hospital Medical Centers. Realizing there was a need to assist patients with many types of cancer, Andrea expanded her research and writing to cover a broader spectrum. She is truly a pioneer in the field of cancer and exercise and has paved the way for other organizations to follow.

Laura Porro, MA, PhD, Assoc CIPD

Laura started practicing Pilates to address long-term postural issues. She had previously tried other activities, but found that Pilates was the only workout that 'stayed' with her: she did not just feel well at the end of the class, but also for the rest of the week.
After qualifying as a teacher, Laura founded Equilibrium Studio, with the mission to enable everyone to feel good in their own bodies. Equilibrium Studio’s philosophy is that Pilates is key to foster a deep connection between body and mind. The awareness and focus unique to the Pilates practice lead to an intense and satisfying workout, which leaves people feeling stronger and free from pain. While Equilibrium Studio embraces the principles Joseph Pilates advocated, it also keeps up to date with the latest findings in the science of movement, marrying tradition and research.
Laura loves to deepen her understanding of how bodies work and she holds specialist qualifications in cancer exercise, bone health, arthritis, osteoporosis, pre/postnatal and post-rehab protocols.
