The Coach-Ed team strives to provide the best programs possible to meet the changing needs of the CF community.
Interested in pursuing a sport, activity or athletic goal? Exercise is proven to improve lung function, heart health, mood, and stress management. It has given many of us great rewards in our lives, and we want to share that with you. Stress related to managing CF, time, costs, and getting started should not hold you back!
Coach-Ed can help you get going - whether you're looking to start exercising for the first time, completing your 10th marathon, or hoping to pursue fitness as a career. APPLY HERE for a Coach-Ed athletic sponsorship and we'll provide you with the support you need to make it happen. If you want some advice on a good athletic program or goal for you, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our trainers can help.

Group Training and Events
It’s a fact…exercising your lungs can help you manage Cystic Fibrosis, as well as every day stresses. As with every population, some CF patients are capable of running marathons, while others are working up to a 5k walk. Whatever your situation is, Coach-Ed wants to help you achieve your best level of health and fitness. Coach-Ed is organizing weekly walking and jogging groups for CF athletes, as well as their families and supporters. These exercise groups will be led by two of our most enthusiastic and experienced team members – Marc, a local physical education teacher and athletics coach, and Brian, an IronMan triathlete and athletics coach. The purpose of these group exercise activities is to promote a healthy, active lifestyle and to provide a regular outlet for exercise. On top of that, we’ve found that working out with a team is not only more fun, but it can also provide a reliable, consistent support network for CF patient-athletes, their families and Coach-Ed Inc. team members.
If you are interested in participating in an exercise group, please contact Brian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
