Founders Jacqui Errico and Debbie Hughes formed Strength for Life in memory of their friend/mentor, Evelyn Knapp, co-founder of Personal Training Institute, who spent a lifetime promoting exercise and proper nutrition to thousands. Evelyn's knowledge, motivation and dedication helped inspire countless individuals to engage in a healthier lifestyle. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, Evelyn continued exercising throughout treatment. She would say it gave her a feeling of control in an uncontrollable situation. From there she made a new commitment to promote exercise for cancer patients so they, too, would experience the benefits. In 2005 Evelyn lost her battle with breast cancer, however, her mission was not lost - Strength for Life continues her work and make her vision a reality.
Services provided include educating cancer patients and the general public on the benefits of exercise in reducing the risk of certain cancers and improving functional activities. For more information, please go to Strength for Life.
