first_imgJerry and Sami Mansfield opened We Build 4 Life, a nonprofit fitness facility that doubles as the Lenexa headquarters for their business, Cancer Wellness for Life.The business couple who leads Cancer Wellness for Life has been guiding area cancer patients and survivors in best practices for exercise, wellness and nutrition. Yet for years, they didn’t have a way to track their patients’ and survivors’ progress.So, Sami and Jerry Mansfield decided to open their own gym in Lenexa.We Build 4 Life is located at 8022 Reeder St. in Lenexa.“Although cancer survivors can go anywhere, we really understand cancer because we work in it day to day,” Sami said. “We’re always up to date on the latest treatments or surgeries or all the different things that are happening, because cancer changes so quickly.“For somebody that’s working in the gym setting, they’re really not certain how to help someone manage those side effects correctly, but we know because we really understand the medical treatment side and then the transitional side.”We Build 4 Life, a nonprofit fitness center, opened in early January, after which the Mansfields began leading one-on-one and group classes in nutrition, functional fitness, yoga and weight lifting. The nonprofit center, located at 8022 Reeder St., doubles as the headquarters for Cancer Wellness for Life.‘We know cancer: the side effects, the limitations’Cancer survivors gathered with Sami and Jerry Mansfield to celebrate the grand opening of their fitness center Friday, Jan. 11.Cancer Wellness for Life focuses on oncology wellness and nutrition consulting. Staff works with large hospital organizations, cancer survivorship groups, exercise gyms and YMCAs to provide wellness education for cancer patients and survivors.As part of that role, staff work daily with about 100 patients at six healthcare facilities in the Kansas City metro area each month. They focus on the importance of exercise and nutrition before, during and after cancer treatment. Before they opened We Build 4 Life, Jerry said it had been difficult to track progress or guide patients and survivors through exercise.“We were having a hard time recommending or sending those patients to someone around exercise and nutrition,” Jerry said. “They can go anywhere, but we know cancer; we know the side effects, we know the limitations, we know what certain things they can and can’t do.“We understand what they’ve been through, and we know how to work them up to doing exercise that can stimulate the growth of muscle in a different way.”The Mansfields are both certified personal trainers and CrossFit level one trainers, and Sami is also a cancer exercise specialist. They are also raising a golden-doodle puppy, Ruth Doodle Ginsburg (named for Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a cancer survivor) and training her to be a therapy dog for their cancer patients.The Mansfields also teach other exercise trainers on best practices for coaching cancer patients and survivors who may be dealing with muscle loss, fatigue and other treatment side effects.Cancer patients and survivors are often treated as fragile, Sami said, adding that she and Jerry know how to push the athletes in the right ways to spur muscle growth and encourage them in their training. We Build 4 Life also functions as a gathering space to build community for cancer survivors.Natasja Mallory, an ovarian cancer survivor (two years in remission) and athlete at We Build 4 Life, said Sami’s exercise training helped her restore muscle strength after surgery and chemotherapy. She learned how to recover her core strength and keep her energy levels up.“I found throughout the chemo, being able to do some exercise really helped lessen that kind of roller coaster effect of those kinds of drugs,” Mallory said, adding that it helped with her appetite as well. “I really feel like what she (Sami) recommended, as far as the resistance work training and strength training was such an important piece.“I was really able to get back to the land of the living, so to speak.”last_img read more

first_imgA lot of Titans fans would just as soon see this team lose the rest of its games to enhance its position in the draft.So should the Titans tank it?In a word: No.In two words: No need.If we’ve learned nothing else about this team in this terrible season it is that the Titans likely are going to lose regardless of their level of effort. They’ve been dominated by good teams like Indianapolis and Philadelphia and bad teams like the Giants.Because of that, the Titans need to try to win games instead of trying to lose them. Ending the year with a whimper sets a bad tone for the offseason. Besides, jobs are on the line. Like they say, everybody in the NFL is playing for his next contract.Consider: Do you expect a true professional like Nate Washington to merely go through the motions against the Jets? His postgame posture and comments after the debacle last weekend spoke volumes about him and his competitive nature.Although Washington’s days with the Titans likely are numbered, it is against his nature to dog it. It simply won’t happen.Nate Washington: Titans’ play ‘not acceptable’Besides, the NFL is built around competitive balance — even for imbalanced teams that aren’t competitive like the Titans and Jets. You’re supposed to go out there and try your best to win on every given Sunday … or Monday or Thursday, depending on the TV contracts.The idea of losing for the sake of an improved position in the draft is conduct unbecoming of an NFL franchise.Not that it doesn’t happen. But it’s usually not obvious.As teams fall out of the playoff picture (the Titans were eliminated in Week 12, by the way), they routinely switch gears and start looking toward the future. And I’m not necessarily talking about the draft.Young players that might not have factored into plans earlier in the season begin to get significant action. This week, for example, Titans rookie defensive lineman DaQuan Jones, a fourth-round pick who has played only 52 snaps all season, is ticketed for extensive playing time.Jury’s still out on Mettenberger as Titans’ QBThus far, Jones is the only member of the 2014 draft class that has not had any real impact on the team this season. Each of the other five have started at least one game.That’s encouraging for the future. Of course, what’s discouraging for the future is that the previous three draft classes have failed to play up to expectations. Couple that with some bad free-agency moves and you can see why the Titans are in this lousy state.As for the draft, rising to the top by finishing at the bottom doesn’t assure any kind of immediate turnaround. This draft doesn’t appear to have that kind of difference-maker.Some see it differently. Many believe the Titans should do whatever is necessary to get Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.There’s even a Twitter entry to that effect — @Suck4theDuck — which has more than 800 followers. It’s a variation of the Suck For Luck campaign in 2012 when the NFL bottom-feeders were positioning for the opportunity to draft sure-thing quarterback Andrew Luck. Indianapolis won that sweepstakes.Titans, Chris Johnson have struggled since splitThis is different. While Luck was considered the best quarterback prospect since Peyton Manning 14 years earlier, Mariota does not come with the same pedigree. He has excelled in an Oregon offense that emphasizes his mobility. There are questions about how quickly and how well he can transition his game from college to pro football.In particular, Mariota does not fit the template of a Ken Whisenhunt-type quarterback. As we’ve seen this season, Whisenhunt requires players to adapt to his system instead of adapting his system to players.With that in mind, we’ll have to wait and see how this pans out.When it comes to the draft, the Titans will get what they deserve.David Climer’s columns appear on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

first_imgAlready looking to offload Wallace, with Wolverhampton touted as a possible landing spot for the Brazilian, the idea of weakening the defence’s depth further isn’t on the cards, meaning the Angola international isn’t for sale.That’s what Il Tempo are reporting on Thursday, stating that both the manager, Simone Inzaghi, and the club’s director of football, Igli Tare, have made it clear the 28-year-old isn’t going anywhere.Now, we all know no player is actually off the market, but it does mean that if Watford really do want Bastos to bolster their defence next season, then Javi Gracia is going to have to convince his board to considerably open up their chequebook.Lazio’s owner, Claudio Lotito, is quite stubborn, demonstrating this trait with the whole Sergej Milinkovic-Savic saga, and if his beloved manager and director of football want to keep someone, he generally tends to have their back.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must Have.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoDating.comTop Successful Single Men in Tung ChungDating.comUndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoSmart Tech TrendEveryone with Bad Vision Needs Those Revolutionary Adjustable Glasses!Smart Tech TrendUndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoLoans | Search AdsNeed a loan?
