October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

10GYM’s Commitment to Health and Wellness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and our Oklahoma and Arkansas gyms believe in doing our part to increase awareness and promote early detection. As a fitness family, we understand the importance of health, not just physically, but also holistically.

Breast Cancer Awareness is more than just wearing pink; it’s about spreading knowledge, inspiring action, and fostering hope. It’s about reminding everyone, regardless of gender, to be vigilant about their breast health. It means empowering people with information about self-examinations and regular mammograms for early detection. It also involves supporting those who are battling the disease, honoring survivors, and remembering those we’ve lost.

Ultimately, Breast Cancer Awareness is a powerful movement that aims to reduce the stigma around the disease, improve access to services, and enhance the quality of life for patients and their families.

And 10GYM is more than just a place to work out; it’s a community that cares. In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, let’s come together to support each other, spread awareness, and make a difference.

Wellness is all about taking care of your whole self, and that’s your mind as well as your body. Eating a balanced diet, staying active, and ditching bad habits like smoking can do wonders for your health.

Exercise is also a crucial component of health and wellness, and it’s not just about getting into shape. If you’re battling breast cancer or you’re a survivor, regular workouts can help increase energy and relieve anxiety and depression. Remember to take it slow and steady with exercise, and talk to your doctor about a routine that’s best for you.

Low-impact exercise, like yoga, is a great, relaxing workout. Yoga is a holistic practice that combines physical postures, breath control, and meditation to promote physical strength, relaxation, and mindfulness. It’s not just an exercise routine, but a philosophy that encourages the connection of mind, body, and spirit for overall wellness.

Personal training is another option at our gyms in Oklahoma and Arkansas. Our trainers are knowledgeable about exercises that can help you maintain strength and mobility. They’re here to support and encourage every member, regardless of age and ability.

For those seeking relaxation and rejuvenation, hydromassage in our Recovery Zone is just the thing. This water-based massage technique can help soothe muscles, relieve tension, and boost circulation — all key elements in promoting overall health and well-being.

As much as we strive to provide services that contribute to your health and wellness journey, we also want to remind everyone of the importance of regular self-exams. Breast cancer is often detectable in its early stages through self-examination. We urge all our members, regardless of gender, to take a few minutes each month to perform a self-check. Early detection is crucial and can significantly increase the chances of successful treatment.

Together, we can make strides against breast cancer. Let’s fight, let’s heal, let’s thrive!
