FASTer Way to Fat Loss® Helps Bring Fitness and Nutrition Support to Florida Cancer Patients

The Tampa-based health and fitness company announced a $200,000 donation to fund an exercise oncology center through Maple Tree Cancer Alliance.

Tampa, Fla. - July 29, 2019 - (

​​​FASTer Way to Fat Loss® founder, Amanda Tress, officially announced a $200,000 donation to Maple Tree Cancer Alliance, a non-profit organization that provides free exercise training, nutrition counseling and spiritual help from diagnosis through survivorship. The FASTer Way to Fat Loss® donation will help fund an exercise oncology center in the University of Tampa Applied Science and Performance Institute in Tampa, Florida, which is scheduled to begin later this year.

“We are thrilled to partner with Maple Tree Cancer Alliance to help solve a growing problem in this country and ensure cancer patients who are already financially burdened with treatment and recovery can have access to fitness and nutrition programs free of charge,” said Amanda Tress, founder of FASTer Way to Fat Loss®. “Like many, cancer has touched our FASTer Way community in a profound way, and we know that staying fit can also help someone stay strong through diagnosis and recovery.”

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss® program is the premier health and fitness program on the market currently and encourages whole food nutrition along with carb cycling and intermittent fasting, strategically paired with high intensity and strength building workouts.

Research shows significant benefits of exercising during cancer treatment, however less than five percent of cancer patients keep working out while they’re fighting the disease.

“We understand people don’t want to necessarily exercise when they’re not feeling well, and we want to help motivate and support patients through that process,” said Karen Wonders, Ph.D., founder and Executive Director of Maple Tree Cancer Alliance. “We want to make exercise a part of the national standard of clinical care for patients.”

Maple Tree Cancer Alliance partners with universities, hospitals, and community centers and currently has 11 locations across the United States. All of the services provided by Maple Tree Cancer Alliance are free.
