Tucson 'Sarge' fighting cancer through boot camp

Posted: Updated:

An expert in Tucson is helping locals fight cancer in a motivating way.

It's a boot camp that's designed to kick bodies into health.

Anita Kellman, known as ‘Sarge’, has been leading "Beat Cancer Boot Camp" classes for a decade.

First, just in Tucson, but the program quickly exploded and gained national attention.

Now, it's licensed and you'll find classes like this all over the country.

“Research is out there that exercise is important in prevention of cancer in reoccurrence of cancer,” said Kellman. “It's important that anyone who is diagnosed with cancer stay physically active. It helps your immune system. It helps you beat the cancer. It helps you through the treatment. So exercise plays a very important role.”

That's why Kellman created Beat Cancer Boot Camp and why people like breast cancer survivor Jessica Zarling get so much out of these classes. The camaraderie is an added bonus.

“Not even to just be physically fit but I think exercise plays a part in mentally being able to get out there,” said Zarling. “A short walk around the block just to clear your mind. Put some music on just to get out. Doing whatever you can.”
